Power, balance, manoeuvrability, and value. The LHR 15ES was the first generation of our 15mm BigFoot random orbital platform and continues to be a popular choice for enthusiasts looking for an economical option or an easy-to-approach solution for a beginner. The 15mm orbit and balanced performance make the LHR 15ES a great tool to work with, but it still has the power to get the job done. The equipped 125mm (5″) backing plate and 150mm (6″) pad system offer the best solution for the widest variety of vehicle shapes and sizes.
The RUPES R&D and design teams paid particular attention to the form and ergonomics of the BigFoot polishers. The perfectly balanced machine body, the practical handgrip placement, quiet operation, and minimum vibration come together in a design that is intuitive and attractive. The LHR 15ES has found fans in countless industries for its capability and functional elegance.
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL MODULE
The LHR15 ES is more than just looks; it has brains too. The specially designed electronic speed control module uses feedback from the tools motor output to adjust power delivery and maintain consistent operating speeds, minimizing the effect of inconsistent operator input. The speed dial is positioned conveniently above the rear grip making it easy to adjust speeds during operation.
THE ORIGINAL LARGE ORBIT POLISHER
At 15mm the orbit of the LHR 15ES, and subsequent generations of the 21mm platform is over 250% larger than standard orbit tools. This massive orbit provides incredible cutting power and high-gloss finishing, often in just one step. The innovative counterbalancing system developed by RUPES provides smooth operation despite the large amount of pad movement generated by the tool. RUPES BigFoot continues to be the largest balanced orbit available on a random orbital polishing tool today.
