Rupes LHR75E Mini Bigfoot
Nothing compares to the LHR75E 3” Electric Polisher, with its massive 12mm throw and powerful and balanced motor! In keeping with tradition of the Detailers and enthusiasts have always had to compromise between installing a small backing plate on their electric D/A’s, or going with a powerful pneumatic machine like the RUPES LHR75. The problem with this, is that unlike professional detailers, not all enthusiasts have a large air compressor to drive the pneumatic LHR75. And while the 6” D/A machines worked alright with a 3” backing plate, it was not designed to be used that way, and the level of performance was stunted.
The LHR75E ("E" designates the electric model, versus the standard LHR75 that is pneumatic)
was designed and balanced for use with 3" pads, and ergonomics of the machine were designed for working in tighter areas as well. The machine feels great in your hands, it has very little vibration in comparison to other D/A's using a 3" backing plate, and it fits perfectly when working in tight areas.
For those used to using a normal D/A with a 3" backing plate on it, you'll want to reduce the speed you're used to when using the LHR75E! Because of the tremendous amount of cut and powerful motor, we rarely find a need to go above speed 4 (out of 6) on this machine. Be sure to get to know the machine at lower speeds at first because the LHR75E doesn't play around!
Most detailers and enthusiasts typically work on tight areas with the LHR75E such as A-pillars, door handles, mirrors, bumpers, rocker panels and around license plates. However, since the 3” machine provides such a high cut, it is also ideal for scratch and spot repairs. It can polish it back out to perfection in two steps, even from 1500 grit sanding!
The rubber pedestal built into the top of the unit is a great feature because it allows the user to securely set the machine on the floor without risking it tipping over and getting dirt/debris on the pad.
