Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Polisher – Italian-bred random orbital polisher features superb engineering for a perfect finish

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 features superb ergonomicsThe 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!

The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher features a variable speed trigger with lockThe Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher is the smoothest running random orbital polisher available. Like a fine Italian sports car, the Rupes LHR 15ES features remarkable engineering and exquisite craftsmanship; the ergonomics along with fit and finish on the LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher are superb. The soft-start system guarantees an acceleration ramp to prevent accidental dispersion of your compound and polish while the electronic feedback control maintains constant speed in all applications. The energy-efficient 500 watt motor and large, 15 millimeter stroke makes the Rupes LHR 15ES capable of removing up to 1500 grit sanding marks!

The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher features a variable speed dial and trigger lock that go hand-in-hand with the carefully designed body of the tool; features like this make the Rupes LHR 15ES the obvious choice for extended polishing sessions. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or someone who simply demands the best of the best, the Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher will deliver.

The Rupes LHR 15ES is the smoothest running random orbital polisher money can buy The Rupes LHR 15ES has features you won't find on any other random orbital polisher

I have read a lot about this polisher, and would love to replace my Griot's DA polisher with the Rupe's , but like most people said in the reviews is it worth me to spend $400 dollars to shave a few minutes off of detailing a car? No I don't think it's worth spending that amount of money for a polisher. Hopefully one day they will come down a lot, but until then I will stick with what I have.

Upgraded to this from my faithful PC and could not be happier! Works super quick and is easy to control, even with the large throw. Also hardly any weight is needed to correct.

One thing I recommend is the KB Washer Mod as it allows the back plate to spin like a mad man on most awkward surfaces DAs have problems with.

Highly recommended for someone not wanting to take the Flex 3401 step but wants to upgrade/get a new fast DA that is still safe!
