Skil Masters is one of the best-known orbital sander manufacturers in the world. Apart from being one of the most affordable, their products are also known to be of very good quality.

The SKIL 7490-01 Random Orbital Sander model is among customers’ all-time favorites.

Quiet and Fast Performance

Talking about good orbital sanders, there happens to be a wide array of options. However, apart from being expensive, they also happen to be pretty noisy. People don’t like noise, so they switched to this version.

The manufacturers know for a fact that nobody likes slow performance. So, they made sure that their products, especially this one, were made for speed. This is one of the many reasons why people are practically obsessed with it.

Comfort and Ease of Handling

Ask anyone about the SKIL 7490-01, and they will all tell you the same thing about it: that it is full of hard work. The manufacturers managed to eradicate this problem with the integration of ergonomic technology that will enable you to handle and work the sander more comfortably and easily.

Pre-selected Speed Dials

Speed dials are one of the most important components of the SKIL 7490-01. If you are unlucky enough to come across one that is of poor quality, then you are a goner. There is no need to worry about that since the speed dials are pre-selected, so you won’t have any problem working the machine.

Efficient Dust Collection System

Dust is one of the many things that can cause a machine to stop operating. The manufacturers thought of this beforehand, which is why they did not release this product without integrating dust suctions and dust filter systems to keep the dust where it won’t bother the machine and its operation.

Apart from the facts stated above, the SKIL 7490-01 Orbital Sander Model is also pretty lightweight. With that, you will have no problem carrying it with you wherever you go.
