LHR 12E DUETTO Random orbital polisher
Duetto All-in-one sanding and polishing system for painted surfaces
The LHR 12E Duetto is equally effective working with soft or interface backing pads teamed with micro-abrasives during the defect correction step or with foam polishing pads and compounds during the polishing stage. Extensive research on random orbital dynamics and exhaustive testing resulted in the choice of a 12mm orbit for Duetto. This orbit length greatly improves the surface rectification abilities of the latest generation of microabrasive discs. The combination of duetto and microabrasives is especially effective when smoothing orange peel or significant defects. The finish generated by this combination is both homogeneous and predictable, with no deep sanding marks.
Duetto is an amazing polisher due to its precise engineering and concern for operator control and comfort. Duetto is manageable and comfortable in every situation and quickly provides excellent results. Duetto has all the features of the BigFoot system, neatly packaged in a compact and maneuverable body. Duetto’s 12mm orbit places it at the very top of the compact machine category in speed, comfort and manageability. Duetto is compatible with BigFoot foam polishing pads and abrasive compounds.
The Rupes company has been around since 1947, and launched their first electric sander in 1951. With a desire to protect the health of users, Rupes began adding a dust removal system to all of their sanders in 1969, and has been improving on the system ever since. In 1995 Rupes introduced the LH 16E compact, high performance polisher. In 2008 they came out with the LHR 150 Orbital polisher with a 10 mm orbit, and in 2010 Rupes introduced the Big Foot brand of Orbital polishers. The LHR 75 was the first Big Foot marketed, a pneumatic polisher with a 15 mm orbit. The LHR 75 was followed by the LHR 21E featuring a 21 mm orbit. Rupes built on the Big Foot brand and came out with the Duetto, smaller than the LHR 15ES the Duetto features a 12 mm orbit allowing it to be a sander and a polisher.
