LHR 15ES Deluxe Kit
The 15mm orbit and the RUPES Ø125mm backing plate make the LHR15ES random orbital polisher particularly suitable for most general paint correction tasks. While the orbit is shorter than that of its big brother the LHR 21ES, the LHR15ES features a higher RPM level which provides equivalent cutting power, in spite of the smaller orbit. Paired with Ø150mm BigFoot polishing foam pads the system promises vibration-free operation making the LHR 15ES a real gem; a must for the tool kit of every detailer.
ELEGANTLY DESIGNED: The RUPES R&D and Design departments have paid particular attention to the design and ergonomics of the BigFoot polishers. The perfectly balanced machine body, the practical handgrip, the silent operation and minimum vibration are just some of the characteristics that help make BigFoot the market’s most versatile and sought-after system.
ANTISPIN SHROUD: The multi-function antispin shroud is designed to protect the operator against the moving parts and act as a clutch for the backing plate to prevent further stress on the foam polishing pad when it is not in direct contact with the surface. The shroud is a key element of the BigFoot tool design that also maintains airflow directionality and cooling dynamics for the interior of the tool.
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL MODULE:
The speed control dial on the handle is both practical and easy to access during use. The speed of the polisher can be easily regu- lated during operation, thus avoiding any interruption of the poli- shing process for adjustments.
ON-OFF SWITCH LOCK: Pressing the button on the left side of the handgrip while polishing locks the on-off switch. This allows the operator to move their hands freely to different gripping positions while the tool is operating.
DESIGN: The attention to detail is not limited to just the innovative and attractive design. The modern lines and exceptional technical quality are combined with a number of details that are the result of meticulous research aimed at achieving maximum operator comfort.
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.
