The SKIL 7492-02 is a Skil orbital sander With Pressure Control and several other features that are unique to the Skil range of orbital sanders. When we started reviewing the various orbital sanders that are on the market Skil was one brand that we had not previously heard of. However, after reviewing the 7492-02 orbital sander from Skil we found that they are a very notable producer of power tools, and this orbital sander, in particular, is a very high-quality device.

Pressure Control Technology

The Skil orbital sander is the first device that we have come across that features a visual warning system for pressure control. The way this works is via an indicator on the side of the device which lights up when too much pressure is applied. Skil clearly understands that applying too much pressure to an orbital sander can result in uneven surfaces and at worst, gauges being created in the surface that is being sanded. Although we have tested similar models to this one – this Skil palm sander being a perfect example – We have not seen the pressure control indicator until now. We found the pressure control is a great way to ensure that you are not putting too much pressure on the surface as you are sanding and is a really great feature especially if you are sanding softer surfaces such as plaster where applying the right amount of pressure is very important.

Random Orbit Action

The Skil orbital sander features random orbit technology ensuring that the device is always spinning in a random fashion. This not only helps to avoid any spin marks on the surface being sanded but also makes the sanding process fast and efficient making sure all areas are covered with equal force.


The Skil random orbit sander comes with a dust collection unit that is easy to remove with a simple twisting action. It also features a micro-filtration system that captures even the finest of dust particles.
