I did some testing of L-boxxes earlier this year after reading how flimsy they are and that they are not tough enough for contractors etc. All false claims IMO! I decided to put one of my L-boxxes to the test. Here are the results!
Here are three videos
Down my front stairs at -15C.
Pushed off a stack.

And here are the results.
This was an L3 L-boxx with about 35lbs of stuff it in.
banged up corners:
This is going to be where they are going to fail if they do. It hasn't gotten worse, but you can see the stress point. It's the clip that the boxx on top clicks to.
Sturdy. YUP. 300lbs+
In the shower for something like 20 minutes. More severe then any downpour I would let my boxxes sit out for. They did get wet, but the amount is acceptable to me. They are not sold or advertised as waterproof.

I have both systems going and will likely keep it that way. Too much cost.effort to switch everything into one over the other. But, I do like the storage size of the L-Boxxes - bigger all around, which is nice. I do like the latch system of Festool beter. The new Midi boxes are better size wise, but still a little lacking in width.

That's a good point on the switching. I was lucky (I guess) to be into the L-boxxes first and then got the couple systainers. I sold the two systainers and was able to get three L-boxxes. I try to buy bosch items that have an L-boxx already. Hopefully more companies go with l-boxxes in the future. I see that some have teamed up with sortimo already
As for other tools it's easy for my to switch out when new. Sell the other container and continue on.
I got some problems with my L-Boxxes!The red conneting handles stucks at some and one has deformated by carrying just a Bosch GBH 2-28 DFV with some drills and chisels so it can´t be connected anymore! I prefere the good old Systainer
Everyone has there taste for transport. I dislike both options for most tasks. Lifting something off to get inside makes me mad. They only good thing I can find is either option protects the tools very well. Thats always a plus!
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
