The first RUPES tool to burst onto the US market in 2013 and kick off a polishing revolution that continues to this day; The BigFoot LHR 21ES introduced the BigFoot polishing systems concept to North America with the first-of-its-kind 21mm orbit and balanced, ergonomic operation. We continue to manufacture the LHR 21ES as a legacy model offering the same world-class performance that made it famous as an economical option for professionals and enthusiasts looking to experience the benefits of BigFoot polishing.
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 21ES has found fans in countless industries for its capability and functional elegance.
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL MODULE
The LHR21 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 21mm the orbit of the LHR 21ES, 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.
