Makita MakPac tool boxes essentially look like older-style Tanos and Festool Systainers, but with a few rounded edges.
A few years back, Tanos and Festool came out with new T-Loc Systainers that are significantly more user friendly than their original Systainers. With this in mind, I cannot help but wonder what Makita’s engineers must have been thinking when they designed these tool cases. Festool T-Loc Systainers are convenient and quick to use. Bosch L-Boxxes are also great, but more affordable. Makita MakPac tool boxes are priced lower than original Tanos and Festool Systainers, but they look to be based on the older less convenient 4-latch design that can be slow and frustrating to work with.
I have purchased Systainers, L-Boxxes, and ToughSystem cases, but cannot see any advantages in Makita’s new MakPac tool boxes.
Additionally, there are few inserts available, and no optional accessories such as attachable front-side handles or dollies.
Also, it seems like people are really down on the Dewalt T-Stacks… bang for buck they blow away all of the competition. There were some Makita Tanos-made Systainers, but also some adaptations (knock-offs?) that looked inspired by Systainers but weren’t quite the same. Tstaks are useful, and their prices are great, but I feel they’re far behind Systainers and L-Boxxes in the quality and convenience department. LXT stuff is still very good though, I wish I bought more than just drills now but at the moment I feel its the wrong time to buy more as we have just got the 4ah batteries and they still cost quite a premium.


I’m a big fan of Makita kit, while i only have LXT cordless drills I do have a lot of mains kit with most of my power tools bought over the last 5 years being Makita apart from a Dewalt SDS drill a Hitachi Router and a small Electra Beckum table saw.
I like the additional hard case options that keep coming out, gives us the option when most kits come with bags now.
But, atleast here in belgium there hasnt been a single price increase for including these macpacs instead of the older non stackable cases.
If Milwaukee is to come out with a modular tool storage system, the tool boxes are going to have to be spectacular if Milwaukee is to stand a competitive chance at market share. I do have some tools that I bought as a bare tool, so it could be nice to have a case for those. For a homeowner, there are some benefits to having modular tool storage, but the costs add up quick.
I have a very small workspace and very many different needs, and so I now tend to shuffle supplies to and from storage as needed. My Festool tools all tend to have a bunch of accessories and attachments that would get lost of the tools were stored anywhere but in dedicated tool boxes. Eventually I would LOVE a Systainer wall, but I calculate that setup, including the upper stacks only partially shown in screenshot image, to be at least $15,500. These days a lot of tool brands package bare tools inside of tool bags, because users like me hate blow-molded cases that provide a custom fit with little adjustability. If I had a larger shop and more space, I would probably keep my corded tools in a very larger closeable bin or tool box, and would keep a single ToughSystem case or deep L-Boxx for when I needed to take tools elsewhere.
Smaller tools with space-efficient space, such as my air nailers, stay in their own slender cases on the shelf. I’ve had nearly 50 years of experience with storing and transporting tools in a small industrial setting, a contractor workout location setting, on contractor trucks and jobsites – and in a home shop. I have to say – that for my home shop – I’ve come to like the Festool solution – with my track saw and its accessories in 2 of their boxes sitting atop their integrated dolly – and my Domino XL – with accessories and dominoes – in 3 Festool boxes on another dolly. Well I wouldn’t spend my own money on these having handled one but they are Ok and are cheaper than the other offerings, I can buy a set of all four sizes for ?120 and to do the same with Systainers would be about ?180 but I would much rather have the Systainers and pay the extra. Things I like, its got a slot on the lid that a strap can be fed through and four screw bosses in the lid for something to attach to. One of these days, one of the major companies is finally going to get a clue and replace the blow molded cases completely and just ship their tools either in soft bags or in a decent modular system without bending their customers over for the privilege. Part of the reason for the blow molded cases is they serve to protect the product during shipping.
Who knows, maybe Milwaukee will be the smart one, taking the best features of the other systems along with the adapters and then the Red Wave will overwhelm the world!!!! Comes with one of the latest lightweight 4-pole motors plus an ergonomically designed handle allowing easy safe use, the compact design has an overall length of just 140mm. Any translation using Google translate is a guide only - its accuracy cannot be guaranteed and it is used at your own risk. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Instead of 2-locking latches or 4-connecting latches, the new T-Loc Systainers feature a single rotating latch that is a lot quicker and easier to use.


Makita-branded Systainers never made it to the USA, at least to my knowledge, and it seems improbable that these will ever make it to the USA. But given their pricing and MakPac cases are based off original Systainer designs that were retired for good reasons, I find the new products rather uninspiring.
Slow on the brushless front, battery front, impact front, drill front etc etc and now the tool box front.
I wouldn’t think that users are more stung by Makita compared to Dewalt, Milwaukee, and Bosch users. Some of Makita’s drills and drivers could be discontinued without creating any holes or gap in their selection. There might be some wiggle room if dealing with a single vendor, but that’s a HUGE investment. For DIYers and homeowners, that might include a few modular tool boxes, but not as many as mobile pro’s would use, and certainly not as many as I use. Both are tools I use once in a while – and I can roll them out of a storage area when I need them.
They are also slightly cheaper than the Bosch L boxes which is nice and molded inserts for various tools are available separately as with the L boxes. These 18v Impact Drivers have an enhanced dust and drip-proof performance, LED worklight with afterglow functions, one touch bit installation and fuel battery gauge. Telephone conversations with the staff before purchase, and after, were done in a very helpful, and polite manner.
The driver was very well packed and was delivered very quickly, even though on the webpage it said up to 3 days for delivery, I got my tool next day. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Dewalt TStak tool boxes are not as good as L-Boxxes, Systainers, or ToughSystem cases, but they’re good and very affordable.
The new LXT chop saw looks interesting if expensive and the LXT planer and the 4″ grinder both are much better than you would think considering how much power the mains versions get through. They have some great unique and strong tools in their lineup, but some never make it here, and others that do are very poorly marketed. A while back I asked why any Makita 18V users would purchase a new drill that was larger, heavier, and less featured than another model in their lineup at the same price point, and they couldn’t offer any explanation at all.
So even if I had simpler tool storage needs, I would probably still keep my Festool tools and accessory bundles in Systainers.
Alternatively, that kind of money is more than enough to outfit a home workshop with quality ball bearing cabinets, cabinets, shelving, bins, and a very nice industrial workbench.
I discarded the cases to my corded hammer drill, saws, multi-tools, and sanders a while ago, and currently keep the tools in modular cases. I also have to say that they come with a hefty price – probably not commensurate with their actual value.
