Review & Price Drop: ROK 1500W Heatgun at Toolbox

Published: Wed Oct 17 2012 is one of the renowned online retailers of tools and power tool equipment in the UK and has been holding their own in this competitive market for many years. The range of products Toolbox currently host rivals pretty much anything that can be found in the big superstores; so itÂ’s definitely worth a look on the site.

Despite the large range of tools on the website, Toolbox is always looking to expand and over the last few months, thatÂ’s exactly what theyÂ’ve done.

4 weeks ago, Toolbox introduced the brand new range. A range of tools that is perfect for DIY enthusiasts or even trade workers who want tools at a good price point without sacrificing on quality. ROK delivers on both of those points, coming in at a competitive price point whilst maintaining a high level of build quality similar to the top brands that cost twice or three times the price.

The ROK 1500W heatgun is one of the notable products in this range which has been recommended by several large names in the tool industry and looks to feature in some DIY magazines in the near future. One power tool guru stated the following after he got his hands on it for a few days: "There’s a lot you can do with a heat gun such as the ROK RPHG1500. Most people will buy one for paint stripping and with its two heat settings – 300˚C and 500˚C – this 1500W gun is well up to the task."

"It’s comfortable to hold, light and well-balanced, with a small wire hanger on the bottom of the pistol grip to hang it up – a good idea while the tool is cooling down to avoid damaging a bench or floor. The gun was quiet in use too – some sound like jets taking off."

The rest of the review for the ROK heatgun can be found on the Toolbox blog along with several other reviews of ROK products which make for interesting reading. The reassuring thing about these reviews is theyÂ’re independently done by people who share no bias towards or against the company or products, unlike other brands who manufacture reviews in a positive light.

After this review circulated, the traffic to the ROK tool page increased significantly and to mark the occasion and promote the product further; Toolbox have slashed the price on the heat gun to make for an even better deal. currently operates on the constantly expanding Online Home Retail Network which at present hosts around 50 websites.
