Our friends at ToolsinAction are over at the 2013 World of Concrete show and sent back these images of Bosch’s latest L-Boxx developments. As you can see, there’s a new bright red L-Boxx first aid kit with organized contents. Seems like a good idea.
Festool came out with an ANSI and OSHA-compliant first aid Systainer kit about two years ago, but it seems to have been a limited-time option. Hopefully Bosch’s will be a regularly stocked item.
If you look closely, the L-Boxxes appear to be docked in some sort of stationary shelf mount. We’re told that Bosch has a new partnership with Dodge Ram, so maybe these rails are taken from truck-mounting brackets.
Here we see Bosch’s new L-Boxx-3D, which features removable organizers (previewed on ToolGuyd last May and then again in August with better images). There’s also the L-Boxx dolly (below the stack on the left) and a Sortimo-branded docking station in the background.
It is unclear whether the docking station is meant for truck use or shop use, but we’re hoping for both.
Oh man, I can’t wait. I know not many people are going to get excited about a first aid kit, but one that’s big enough to hold everything (especially if they sell it fully stocked) and big enough to be very easily seen. It’s not only that but clicked onto your tool storage it’s impossible to forget it or be too far away from it if something happens. I love it.
Dan did a good job, even if he did call you Rain man.
I saw the first-aid kit is a regular item in the Sortimo catalog. Nice to see it available from Bosch (possibly) since Sortimo is a little tougher to get in the US. The rails look similar to the Carmo accessory but the ends are different and it’s mounted to stainless steel. Perhaps that’s an interior shot of the work box mounted to the back of the Bosch branded blue Ram.
The first aid kit is a standard Sortimo item, unfortunately its £100 which be $160 before shipping to the USA so hopefully Bosch will make one available for less.
The wood work surface mounted to the top of a stack of L-Boxxes (lower right corner of photo under 3 I-Boxx drawers) looks interesting. I’ve seen it in catalogs and wondered how they would latch a single piece of plywood to the case. Spring loaded latch of some sort? Any ideas?
Jeff, I think you’re right about that being a shot of the utility body on the Ram – especially if the body was built by Knapheide since Bosch and Sortimo have a marketing agreement with them.
I would think that the bottom side of the plywood work top latches onto the top handle of L-Boxxes. There might be tabs on the sides as well, but probably not spring-loaded ones as those require a bit of height.
I don’t know how the plywood latches on but I know they do a worktop that you can mount a vice to that will fit inside the larger boxes, they also do tool holding panels that fit on the insides of the lid and end panels for the larger boxes, there is also mini I boxes coming that fit inside standard boxes but also stack themselves.
This stuff looks awesome. I’m hoping they release the exact-fit trays separately like they have available in the uk and europe. At the very least let you configure an empty l-boxx with the exact-fit trays of your choice. Recieved the 2 l-boxx/12v driver set for xmas and would love to get a few more boxxes for the 12v bosch stuff I already have. The first aid kit would definitely be on the wishlist too.
Haven’t seen any mention of it, but the 18volt powered LED l-boxx would be a nice adddition as well should bosch decide to offer it in the U.S. I also noticed Amazon also has some new product pages up.
I have been using L boxxs for over a year now and theymake organization a snap. They finally released the lboxx3d and its great for all my smalls and clamps. I made custom inserts to accomodate muliple tools in one boxx , for instance in a lboxx 4 I have jigsaw skillsaw palm router belt sander and hammer drill. These boxxs make my whole setup look clean and neat and easy to transport in a scion hatchback. Can’t wait pick up the first aid kit. Thanks bosch/sortimo for bringing it to the USA.
Where did you buy it? The L-Boxx 3D products don’t seem to be in-stock at any Bosch distributors yet.
I got the lboxx 3d from ohio powertool.
I would love to see what you made for the inserts… Do you have pictures anywhere?
Amazon now also started to sell 3d box but does not sell a lot of drawers
but they now have the dolly etc..
I missed out on the last sale at ohio powertool but next time I will get one.
I have to say I’m disappointed that the folding cart isn’t available anywhere in the US. I saw these on “I Want That”, fell in love with them, invested a about $150 in everything thinking the cart was going to be available shortly thereafter. Seems, I was wrong, I’ve been waiting for over 6 months. I want the first aid kit, but not without getting the cart first…. Come on Bosch, get cracking.
Something like the foldable Magna Cart provides similar functionality and is very widely available.
