Skil is launching the Fox onto the market a powerful and easy-to-operate 3-in-1 multi-sander. This tool is a random orbit sander, orbital sander and delta sander in one and therefore offers do-it-yourselfers a high level of flexibility when sanding. The multi-sander is supplied with two base plates: a round base plate with 125 millimeter diameter and an iron-shaped base plate that can be rotated 180 degrees. When the tip is pointing forwards, the tool can be used like a delta sander to perform detailed sanding work right in hard to reach areas. Turn the tip backwards and the tool becomes an orbital sander for working on large, flat surfaces. The round sanding pad can be used to transform the tool into a random orbit sander. This enables do-it-yourselfers to quickly achieve a very high material removal rate on both flat and curved surfaces. This tool therefore covers the entire range of applications from coarse sanding to fine finishing.

Easy to operate even for beginners
The Fox is equipped with a 250 watt motor and therefore offers high performance for faster sanding results. Two speeds can be set: the lower speed is used for applications that require careful control during material removal, whereas the higher speed is used for working on large surfaces. The Fox is therefore easy to operate, even for do-it-yourselfers who have little experience using sanders. Moreover, the integrated brake function ensures that when being used as a random orbit sander the sanding pad does not rotate when the tool is switched on and off. This prevents damage to the surface, which can occur when the sanding pad is applied to the surface or lifted from it. Further features of the multi-sander include a dust box and an integrated vacuum cleaner adapter.

Easy base plate change
The base plates can be quickly and easily loosened and tightened again using a hex key. The delta tip on the iron-shaped base plate can also be removed separately. It is connected by means of a velcro system, and you can rotate it in three different positions. This prevents one-sided wear and ensures a longer lifetime of the delta tip.

The Fox 3-in-1 multi-sander will be available from September 2013 onwards at a recommended retail price of 79.99 euros including VAT. It is supplied in a canvas carrying bag including dust box, two base plates and ten sheets of sanding paper with different grit sizes.
