Expensive but they work great and install in under five minutes. No more stacking and unstacking!While I dislike the cost of these, I love the product. I’ve now built two cabinets, housing seven boxes of these drawers. No more stacking and unstacking. The lock works great. They slide easily in either direction and installation couldn’t be quicker or easier. You do need to pay attention to inside dimensions to prevent binding, but there’s another detail to really watch for. Plywood is getting thinner! My last batch of $90 plywood is 11/16″ thick! If you build shared vertical dividers and expect to install drawers with euro screws into both sides, you may have to grind the screws or buy shorter ones. The bottom drawer in each bay, of course, will cause this issue. After that, it depends on your assortment of systainer heights, as to when you will have collisions. I was forced to repair several holes with chopsticks and CA glue/re-drill when a screw bottomed out and stripped the hole.
Fits Festool systainers perfectly, plastic could be a little strongerTypical Festool accessory, works perfectly with Festool systainers. Bought these for home-built systainer carts and systainer cabinets, to save time vs. building out custom drawers. Value is decent – $45 per drawer including the full-extension slides and a molded plastic drawer that holds systainers perfectly. A latch is also included so drawers won’t inadvertently slide out of your mobile cart, and an optional lock can be purchased to turn the latch into a security device. My only real complaint is that the drawers are rated only to 45 lbs. That sounds like plenty but for the money I would have liked beefier drawer slides and thicker plastic so the drawers felt more solid. Random Tip: if you find yourself wishing for an “over-travel” slide to pull your drawers out a little further, the Centerline 757 series drawer slides (1 13/16″) can be used in place of the slides that come with the Festool. Specifically, the half of the slide that screws into the cabinet will fit the Festool drawer-side half perfectly. There is one catch – the slide latches are flipped on Centerline vs. Festool, so you have to pop those off of the Festool drawer-side half prior to engaging the slides. If you don’t do this, you will find that the slides work but you won’t be able to separate them again without a tool. Just be aware that when you pop off the latches, the slides are no longer captured so in theory you could pull a drawer all the way off the slides. I found there is plenty of friction in the slides to prevent this, but caveat emptor. In my case, a few “over-travel” 757 slides helped me pull out the drawers an extra 1-1.5″ to clear a countertop lip.

Yes, they are not cheap but you get what you pay forThese are not cheap – but neither are good slides which are about 70% of the expense here. They come with euro screws – which for me are hard to find locally. The quality is great and they are a huge time saver, which is where they presented the greatest value to me. I could make drawers, but I’d rather use my precious time elsewhere – at the same time I have mild OCD and these things helped me get super organized. I have a small shop and these have been critical to getting the most out of my space. I got 20 so far and might get another 10 before the year is out, then I should be good to go.Picture is a work in progress shot, but you get the idea how they are used. I’ve moved them up and down several times so far, pretty sure this is always going to be a work in progress for me…Shipped FedEx from 2 different suppliers both times I have purchased and each time arrived within 4 days.

Very well made.I purchased these having extremely high expectations based on the price and the Festool brand. Not all of my Systainers are compatible with the Sys rails, and I wanted something that would. I was not disappointed. The drawers very sturdy and fit every generation of Systainer I own. The locking mechanism works well for wheeled carts and the label slot makes sure tools get returned to the right drawer.The only thing that would make these better for my use case would be soft closing drawer slides. But that isn’t super necessary.

Even without the latch installed the still have a nice detent to keep the tray closedI notmally slam Festool for price, but on these I added up the cost of slides and the time it would take to make the drawers. I have to say that while expensive, it still made sense. Even without the latch installed the still have a nice detent to keep the tray closed. MAKE SURE YOU USE A METRIC 5MM BIT. I started off with the wrong bit 1/4″ and had to change my hole locations once I realized that I grabbed the wrong bit.
One of the drawers arrived damagedUpdate:The seller just sent me a replacement. Will buy again after I have more Festools.Original comment:I love the drawers. But one of them arrived damaged.
I LOVE these drawersI LOVE these drawers!!! I think I own 11 of them! Yes, I’m a Festool junkie!!! If you follow the directions inside the package you can make the box for the drawers! The LR32 for your 1010 Festool router is super helpful.
Awesome DrawersLove love my Festool!!!!!!
