Our vision is to bring the strength of the OX to every tradesperson.
Our tools will be instinctively recognised as tough, dynamic and dependable.
Our customers feel like OX is the ‘extra man on site’.
Our hand tool range was born in 1974 in Australia and was launched under the OX brand in the UK at the beginning of 2012. With extremely high quality products, a strong brand and competitive pricing, the range is already proving to be a massive success. Developed and proven in the Australian market over the past 39 years the hand tools are instinctively recognised as tough, dynamic, dependable and importantly, affordable.
The Spectrum Diamond Tool range was developed in 1992 and is now clearly recognised as the leading brand of choice and at the forefront of diamond tool technology.
To those of you that are already familiar and trading with OX Group I’d like to say, 'Thank you for your support’, and to anyone who is yet to experience the OX success story I say, ‘Welcome, I look forward to hearing from you’.

Review for OX Tools by Bales Design6th February 2022
Absolutely brilliant quality tools from OX, always! They fail to perform, from their plastic pipe cutters and screwdrivers to their adjustables and hacksaw blades, and they always look so great!
Review for OX Tools by Thomas combes5th February 2022
A great range of products throughout the building and construction trade. Reasonably priced and good quality giving good professional performance
Review for OX Tools by Brian Leneghan1st February 2022
Great variety of hand tools just recently got the ear defender's and have found to be great and comfortable to wear and does cut the noise down very well
Review for OX Tools by Apex E C22nd May 2021
So I've owed a few ox tools but I was recently working with someone who'd bought an ox boat level. It was small and oozed solid but he dropped it once from about 1.5m and it was out of level straight away.
Review for OX Tools by JMW Heating & Plumbing Ltd23rd March 2021
Look great feel great but a bit too on the pricey side. Look the part in anyone’s tool box but the price is very off putting on some tools.
Review for OX Tools by Lock Building Contractor20th March 2021
Have purchased a few Hand tools over the last year and have been pleased with all the handles on the trowels could be thicker, but pleased with all purchases to date.
Review for OX Tools by Waudys11th March 2021
Very good piece if kit this is. It's sturdy, accurate, has neat features (bubble window), and well protected if ever dropped. Would definitely reccomend as an alternative to more expensive Stabilo levels.
Review for OX Tools by Silverwood Carpentry9th March 2021
I only have there trade pro levels best levels out there I recon great bag for them between me and lads having all different makes and brands of is far better the pro ones my labourer brought Stanley Ones at same time and now not level any more
Review for OX Tools by Acquiesce Environmental Compliance7th March 2021
Only just started to use their ratchet pipe slices wouldn’t be without them now I use them day in day out with no
Issues. As long a you keep them well maintained they should plod on. Wouldn’t buy any other slice now.
Review for OX Tools by DKMProperty23rd February 2021
Great value great quality. I use these on site. They last, they are built well and the fetching blue colour means I can see when the other sneaky lads have acquired my kit.
Review for OX Tools by G A Turner21st February 2021
This brand has come from nowhere in the last few years to be a serious contender in the market. Love the blue colour, got a few of their hand tools. We'll made, good value for money and an ever expanding range of products.
Review for OX Tools by Richardson18th February 2021

Review for OX Tools by Viking Electrical16th February 2021
Very good range of items and very cheap, they don’t last the longest but 9 times out of 10 they will have what you are looking for at a great price, just don’t expect too much of them
Review for OX Tools by Louis13th February 2021
A good quality brand that always delivers the very best of tools and accessories make sure to have a look at many of there products you won’t be disappointed
Review for OX Tools by NRG Electrical12th February 2021
Haven't found a bad product from ox tools, they are fairly new to the UK market from Australia
You get what you pay for and they are tools for life and not just for Xmas
Review for OX Tools by Denne Joinery12th February 2021
Had used a spirit level from them it was nice and worked fine saw them at a tool show but there weren’t as engaging as other brands to promote themselves but the tools themselves were nice
Review for OX Tools by Regenesis Facilities Ltd t/a Hythe Heating9th February 2021
Just bought and used a number of Speedskim items for a new build project. The 900mm ST semi flex blade is awesome for flattening off plaster before finishing. Much easier on the wrists and hands than a traditional trowel especially as I have arthritic problems as a time served heating engineer.
Review for OX Tools by B. Burnside property maintenance7th February 2021
Been using ox levels for a while now. Good quality with a nice feel to them. With the rubberised end caps they are definitely able to withstand more punishment than many alternative products
Review for OX Tools by D.R Holder7th February 2021
Nice variation of tools , got sets for every tradesman. Great quality stuff. Must be good since my ox tools keep getting nicked on site! Definitely recommend
Review for OX Tools by Self-employed7th February 2021
Needed a new pairs of snips. Grabbed the Ox 7" ones to give them a try. Very good snips. Half the size of other brands so fit in the tool bag very nicely and still cut just as well.
Review for OX Tools by Babcock6th February 2021
An underrated brand. Very good quality for the price, all of there tools have good durability. Great variety of tools for all trades. Comparable brands get more rep but this shouldn’t be over looked.
Review for OX Tools by H Harrison And Co6th February 2021
Really like most of their tools, the trowel range I have enjoyed and chisels to but I must say I was really disappointed with the fibre glass claw hammer which I snapped pulling a 6” nail out of some hardwood. ( I’m only 72kg) i may have had it about 6 months but they didn’t want to know when I tried to report it. I didn’t Try too hard because it wasn’t overly expensive in the first place but, disappointing
Review for OX Tools by Chris Fulcher Buildimg Services5th February 2021
The first ox product I got was an ox pro level and it has been great, I have noticed that one of the plumb bubbles has gotten larger and now is not readable. I have ox buckets and they’re hard wearing and I quite like the 12inch blocking towel.
Review for OX Tools by AE Services Blue Napier Tools5th February 2021
I have only been introduced to this brand and its mostly promoted through the construction and builders centres, but prices seem to be at the high end once vat is included. However, there are alternatives out there that can match or beat Ox on overall performance and value
Review for OX Tools by AMB5th February 2021
Brilliant brand with great tools wouldn’t use anything else. They don’t feel cheap, would be lost without these tools everyday. Great value for money with massive savings to be found. Customer support is 10/10 emails answered quick and efficiently!
Review for OX Tools by Dnl Plastering5th February 2021
Like to use the ox flexi blade float it certainly dose the job right size and weight and fits the hand no idea what more to say except it’s a excellent trowel
Review for OX Tools by MH Homes5th February 2021
For all your plastering needs these are the go to tools. Feel really good to use and give a nice finish to the plaster. Decent price for a really good tool.
Review for OX Tools by A Whatley Property Maintence2nd February 2021

Review for OX Tools by Peter Mcauley Plastering2nd February 2021
Really good tools all round exceptional value for money as a plasterer I’ve used a lot of ox trowels really nice quality hard wearing tools
Review for OX Tools by Ormistons2nd February 2021
I own a lump hammer from ox and to be honest, it does exactly what it says in the tin. Cracking hammer, well balanced and it's really taken a battering.
Review for OX Tools by Owen Andrews Joinery And Handyman Services2nd February 2021
Really good all round products my college used them back when I was in training and I liked them a lot good quality but not as good as other power tool brands
Review for OX Tools by KS3 Installations Ltd2nd February 2021
Tried ox tools good a couple of pair of adjustable a but they have become really alkward to adjust very quickly, jury is out on these at min
Review for OX Tools by Jack Sheppard31st January 2021
Good tools have a coal chisel and does the job well the tools are a good price and good quality for what they cost also have a tape which is really good for the quick measure up
Review for OX Tools by Mr A Bolton31st January 2021
Quiet like the OX tool range , box levels have lasted me 18months or so still spot on despite the heavy use, good range of trowels and knifes, particularly the speed skim range .
Review for OX Tools by Stonemasonry Designs Ltd30th January 2021
Ox is new brand and as builder have only had the chance to try out few products. The pointing trowels I purchased the complete range of sizes for my apprentice. Seems to be holding up well and quality is there but not upto the American stuff is builders love. But time will tell certainly good option for beginner with budget.
Review for OX Tools by TJH Electrical29th January 2021
I have the 2 foot and 4 foot levels. Build quality is great, get what you pay for with tools and these are worth every penny. The bubbles are so easy to read also
Review for OX Tools by Rwright Home Improvements28th January 2021
Always impressed when a wholesaler has a display of these tools. They preform well and last as long as expected. A wide range and competitive prices
Review for OX Tools by Mike Barrett Building Services27th January 2021
On the whole great tool selection and range. I won a 16’’ flexi trowel on their Facebook page. Was always a MT man but have had my head turned. Also got a couple of their pro range levels and am very impressed. Good to see new tools regularly being developed.
Review for OX Tools by RK PROPERTY MAINTENANCE26th January 2021
Visited the Manchester tool fairs some five years ago and visited the OX Tool stand, bought, speed cramps, plasterers float and a spirit level, they are still in daily use, great kit well made.
Review for OX Tools by Rhys Cadogan25th January 2021
Ox tools are probably what you’d describe as a middle of the road manufacturer. On the whole pretty good and at a reasonable price. Ox tools have a good verity of tools and they’re readily available in most builders merchants which makes them very handy.
Review for OX Tools by GHS24th January 2021
Can’t go wrong with these tools you get what you pay for with any hand tools at the end of the day these are much cheaper alternative to most other brands and will
Get the job done for a fraction of the price
Review for OX Tools by GKB Property Maintenance24th January 2021
Love these tools, good quality at very good price point , worth paying a bit extra to get quality,
Buy cheap buy twice
Hard wearing and worth every penny
Review for OX Tools by East & smith Air Conditioning24th January 2021
I bought the OX level which was great. Served well and wirh took a beating.. have dropped it many times but still works fine. I like the OX brand and stands out VS others. Good quality vs price
Review for OX Tools by Pra Air Conditioning21st January 2021
A massive range of tools and seem sturdy and good quality, the price of the tools can sometimes be on the pricey side making them abit less value for money. But their work wear is definitely value for money
Review for OX Tools by Flooring By Felix Taylor20th January 2021
I have only tried some of their tools, I have always got ox tape measure in the van, I buy the trowels for when I’m doing my self levelling and I have never had a problem
Review for OX Tools by Anchor Point Rope Access20th December 2020
Got some ox tools boots. I have know idea what was going on when they made them.. although I’m a size 10 I have ended up in a 9 which is still far too long but I have had absolutely no give for width, would never buy another pair
Review for OX Tools by T S McLaughlin & Son Ltd17th December 2020
Have had quite a few tools from Ox tools and to be fair there a fair price and last as long as there looked after!! overall a good products, good price
Review for OX Tools by Sm roofing contractor9th December 2020
Have had a few different tools from the ox range and to be fair I have no complaints the tape measures last longer than any other I’ve had hammers haven’t started going rusty or the handles coming off like other brands. Can’t really say about customer service as have never dealt with them direct.
Review for OX Tools by Gary England8th December 2020
Considering the cost of most ox tools, I was really surprised at the quality. I have a few of their items in my tool kit now, and I'm happy with every one so far.
Review for OX Tools by Hiten's Handyman Services Ltd26th November 2020
Got a 115mm diamond cutting blade it was a bit pricy but saying that you pay for what you get and did the job fantastically great for cutting concrete boards.
Review for OX Tools by P and r heating17th November 2020

Buy alot of ox bits through sydenhams and i must say for the price you cant beat the quality and some of the offers they put out are really good value for money would definatley recommend
Review for OX Tools by Rafter Grafter1st October 2020
Quality tools that rival other market leaders. Relatively new company that have climbed the ladder and are now one of the leading companies for “wet trades”. Averagely priced considering the quality.
Review for OX Tools by B D S plastering and property services30th September 2020
Great trowels, currently have a flex and scarpers... wouldn’t be with out both great tools and awesome performance. My flex gives an awesome polish on the last pass

Review for OX Tools by James Bruton28th September 2020
Got a few ox tools always been happy with the quality and range wouldn't say they are as good as some of the high end brands but certainly good for the lower cost
Review for OX Tools by VCG Property Services26th September 2020
They have an ever expanding range and their products as whole have good build quality. If you take in to account their pricing then price vs build quality is on point.
Review for OX Tools by Croft Plumbing &heating26th September 2020
I have two ox floats and that are good take some bedding inn but now do a nice job. They are not that cheap but get a good finish nice to know there is more than one good brand on the market.
Review for OX Tools by J Walding25th September 2020

Review for OX Tools by Barries_Joinery25th September 2020
Own there hammers and leaves. Good tools for good price. There tools are more towards plasterers tho not a great range of wood work tools but what i have uses of there tools they are good.
Review for OX Tools by Matthew Hart24th September 2020
Ox have made their mark very quickly they have some amazing products which are of high quality!. They are hard wearing and well worth the money, value for money is brilliant as not costing the earth for a good quality product.
Review for OX Tools by Skillz Builders24th September 2020
Good quality tools, a little bit expensive at times.
Really like there trowels and paddle mixer. The ratchet copper pipe cutter is also very good.
Review for OX Tools by West Midlands Security and Fire26th August 2020
Brought the pocket knife and tape measure and unfortunately both only lasted around 6 months.
Disappointed as I like the look and feel of the tools but just didn’t seem to last.
Review for OX Tools by J.A PLUMBING3rd August 2020
Have the ox spirit levels and despite dropping them they are still bang on, built very well and the colour helps to identify amongst many tools
Review for OX Tools by CED Electrical2nd April 2020
I only own a couple of Ox branded tools, mainly bolsters, but they're very good for the money, solid, don't chip or shatter and are very cheap for what you get for your money!
Review for OX Tools by mcr propwrty maintenance3rd February 2020
I become more of a fan with every tool I purchase, tools are hard wearing and of great quality, well built to last and their prices are great too
Review for OX Tools by The Sleaford Boiler company Ltd3rd November 2019
I find ox tools cheap quality, I brought an ox claw hammer within two weeks the claws had bent from just pulling nails, the tape measure are not much better the mechanism inside break to easily
Review for OX Tools by A Royal Flush Plumbing4th August 2019
only spoken to reps and always been good to deal with. i love their tools, my main level is from ox and gets treated pretty badly but i know it can handle it, i have a small hammer/jemmy bar which my daughter calls my magic hammer as i use it for so many jobs. absolutely love it though price was a bit high i think.
Review for OX Tools by Sunderland Property Renovations Ltd13th June 2019
Have 4 Ox spirit levels and a bucket trowel so far, but won’t need much of an excuse to buy more! Well made hard wearing and fair price for the quality.
Review for OX Tools by R Davis Plastering30th June 2018
I'm a plasterer and pretty much any tool I ever need to replace there is a OX Tool that I can grab. Good price point, availability and quality. One of my favourite tools is the OX Pro Trowel
Review for OX Tools by Johns Maintenance31st March 2018
Being a toolaholic I bought the stainless steel probate , it looks and feels great. However it falls short in real life as the pry ends are much thicker than all other pry bars I have ever used which makes it harder to get under nails Tec to lever them out. Buy a normal steel one for every day use, yes ox make them.
Review for OX Tools by N.J.L Landscaping & Garden services13th March 2018
i have used OX a fair bit since they come out i own levels mallets hammers and so on i can honestly say that the products are very well made a hold up to all elements and abuse given to them
Review for OX Tools by Waterworks Plumbing Solutions12th February 2018
Seems reasonably priced tools, but quite hard to find. Our local Bradfords sold them for about 8months then got rid of them. Had a fair amount of tools on display at a trade show I went to, and bought a mega mix, which is a rubber mixing paddle, great for if you are too lazy too clean it as nothing sticks to it, you can bang it off after use and its relatively clean. Mixes really well too, however, have never seen them available since.
Review for OX Tools by Crawley HVAC Services12th February 2018
From what I can see they make some nice tools, I have the boat level and it is nice, but it’s a bit bulky, I know this was the design intention, but I personally need it in my tool bag on every job, so I need nice small and compact tools. But I can see how this would be perfect for other trades etc, works well, Magnetic and has nice clear bubbles, big rubber ends in case it’s dropped. Overall it’s ok. Worth a look.
Review for OX Tools by RDM Elite Builders Ltd12th February 2018
Pro Brick Trowel- says it all! for PRO's! Professional like myself, are not set in the ways not to try something new, Marshalltown and Rose have dominated bricklayers trowels since I helped my dad out on site in the school holidays, for the last 18 months I've been using the ox pro brick trowel, and I won't be going back, it's a quality product, it the trowel I was using when I won Britains Top Tradesperson last year, I'm actively replacing all my tool kit with ox tools, for quality, durability, tuff-ness and awesome value for money, I recommend and endorse ox tools.
Review for OX Tools by Michael cushion9th February 2018
Ox sell tools for all trades. I have tried many from hammers to plastering trowels and speedskims. Levels to brick trowels and even ppe wear. All tools are top quality and i couldnt fault them. My tool box has almost completely transfeered to ox!
Review for OX Tools by Northumberland Double Glazing Repairs9th February 2018
Used several different tools from their range and I've found them well made and value for money. I would definitely consider Ox tools when I come to replace any of my tools in the future.
Review for OX Tools by C.C.HUMPHREY PLASTERING AND PROPERTY SERVICES11th December 2017

Slowly replacing my tools with this stuff (just because it's what my merchants stock) I'm very impressed with the levels good sturdy feel with the bridge over the bubble. Trowels last well they don't rust away after cleaning. Haven't bought any trade specific tools yet but I'm optimistic for them when the time comes
