The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher sets the benchmark to which other random orbital polishers are compared. Rupes, a world-renowned Italian tool maker that has been manufacturing innovative power tools since 1947, set out to develop the smoothest running, most capable random orbital polisher the industry has ever seen. After years of strenuous research and development, the LHR 15ES and its big brother, the LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polishers were born.
The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher gets its name from its impressive 15 millimeter throw. The throw of the machine indicates the size of the orbit the pad makes. Consider this: a conventional random orbital polisher has a throw between 4 and 8 millimeters. The advantage of a larger throw is that more surface area is being covered as you polish. This means you ll be able to remove swirls, scratches, water spots and other paint defects in considerably less time. The Rupes LHR 15ES utilizes a 5 inch hook and loop backing plate designed to accommodate 5.5 inch and 6 inch pads the perfect size for modern vehicles with curvy panels and sharp body lines.
The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher ensures a perfect finish with its random orbital motion and exceptionally large throw. One of the biggest advantages of the LHR 15ES is that no swirls or holograms (also referred to as buffer trails) are instilled into the paint as you polish. A conventional rotary/circular polisher, while very effective at polishing paint to remove defects, leaves swirls and holograms in the finish as a result of its direct drive, circular motion. Simply put, the Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher leaves you with a perfect finish that s free of swirls and holograms all without the risk of burning through the paint. The Rupes LHR 15ES is so easy to use that even a novice can have the polisher mastered after only one panel!
