Random Orbital Sander From Snap-On Puts Power and Comfort in the Palm of Your Hand

KENOSHA, Wis., Oct. 21, 2005 - Sanding, shaping and refinishing just got easier with the introduction of the Snap-on® Random Orbital Sander (PS4612). The sander offers reduced vibration, smooth operation, a contoured fit and patented o-ring sealed motor. An adjustable air regulator allows the sander to reach a maximum 12,000 rpm, perfect for tackling any size sanding project.

The Snap-on Random Orbital Sander features an ergonomic S-curved lever that fits hands better than flat levers to deliver optimum comfort. The sculpted shape provides additional comfort and reduces hand fatigue when working for a long period of time. The adjustable grip is made from a soft material for maximum vibration absorption and is molded to complement nearly any size hand. The grip features notches inside that allow the technician to rotate the handle and position a grip comfortable for their hand size. The notches also prevent inadvertent rotation of the grip while in use.

Adding to the tool's uniqueness, a field-serviceable drop-in motor allows easy access for cleaning, adding tune-up kits or full-motor replacement. A patented dust-bearing shield prevents contamination of the lower motor bearing, protecting and significantly extending overall motor life. The smooth operation of the Snap-on Random Orbital Sander is achieved by a robust front spindle and precision balanced crank. This spindle and crank design helps extend the life of the motor and front bearing when downward pressure is applied to the sander.
