To celebrate the product launch at Kooltech, £50 Amazon vouchers are to be given away with every purchase! If that's not enough to persuade you then maybe read this product testimonial below from one of Kooltech's valued customers. The product feedback comes from Steve Crame, managing director of Protocool Ltd:

"We pre-ordered the new Bosch RG4.0 recently and have had a great response back from the engineers. We were apprehensive with the brand change but needed the A2L / 110volt combination. Kevin Tickle of Kooltech secured the unit for us and assured us that the quality was only improved since Bosch’s takeover and he was right. The build quality is solid and the recovery rates are ideal for the larger jobs. The new Bosch features have only enhanced the already essential piece of every day kit in our vans. Very happy with the purchase and will be happy to replace all the units on the fleet with the Bosch units as and when required, also looking forward to the pending unconfirmed features in development".

There's a wide variety of different jobs which keep it interesting going from commissioning systems, stripping condensers and rebuilding them to working on complex electrical panels".

Congratulations to Stephen on a fantastic achievement from the Kooltech team.
