Designed as the true “Detailers BigFoot” the LHR15 Mark III polisher balances performance, maneuverability, capability, and the signature ergonomic performance of the RUPES BigFoot family of random orbital polishers. While the orbit of 15mm is smaller than the flagship LHR21 tool by 6mm the LHR15 Mark III compensates with a higher top speed and coupled with the 125mm/5″ backing plate allows the tool to take on more complex or intricate curves and contours found in today’s modern car designs.
Improving upon the previous generation LHR15, the LHR15 Mark III adds ergonomic rubber grips for improved operator feel, progressive trigger, a more refined chassis with even better balance, dual tool support rests to keep the polisher upright when on a cart or table, a retuned electronics module for improved performance, and a 30ft cord standard. The MarkIII continues to boast the most efficient design in the category only consuming a max of 500watts of input which means the LHR15 Mark III delivers incredible amounts of torque and power to the surface without any additional vibration, tool generated heat, or other side effects that lead to operator fatigue common with lower quality tools.
If you’re looking for the best all around random orbital polisher for detailing purposes look no further than the LHR15 Mark III.
Whats New on the Mark III?
- IMPROVED ERGONOMICS -The rubberized front grip of the MarkIII offers exceptional comfort for the operator while providing a non-slip surface for control. The improved rear handle also integrates rubberized surfaces for improved feel. Two strategically placed, non-marking, tool rests provide stability when the tool is not in use as well as additional protection against unintended impact. The continued refinement of the BigFoot random orbital platform in MarkIII reinforces its best in class reputation, making the best even better.
- TUNED ELECTRONIC SPEED MODULE – The new electronic speed control dial allows for easy adjustment of the top speed of the polisher without requiring the operator to move his hands. The larger dial is easily adjusted with a move of the thumb. High visibility numbers and a more positive feedback from the movement of the dial make speed changes feel more deliberate, allowing operators to select the ideal speed for the task without any interruption to the polishing process. The module has also been tuned to deliver peak torque and speed in the optimal dial ranges.
- PROGRESSIVE TRIGGER – Adding an additional layer of control is the new progressive trigger. Acting as a throttle to control speeds within the dial range, the progressive trigger allows the operator to make subtle adjustments for precise control without interruption of the process or need to reposition the grip to access the speed dial. The linear delivery of power allows for very fine adjustment within each speed range giving technicians a whole new dimension of control.
- LONGER CORDS – The Mark III comes standard with a 9 meter (29.6 ft) cord on both the LHR15 and LHR21 models. The longer cord provides users enough length to move more effortlessly around their workshop or studio without the need for additional extension cords or searching for a nearby outlet.
