RUPES BigFoot LH 19E - A Rotary That Works At Low Speeds!
**OUT OF STOCK BUT DUE IN SEPTEMBER 2017**
Rotary machines typically have faster speed settings when compared with dual action polishers. Whilst this allows for enhanced cutting ability, it can be overly aggressive for more sensitive detailing jobs. This often results in two machine polishers being required, one rotary and one dual action in order to complete one job. However, the RUPES BigFoot LH 19E changes that.
The BigFoot LH 19E Rotary Polisher features a high torque, compact design in a lightweight housing. This makes it one of the most capable and manoeuvrable rotary polishers available and is suitable for use in a variety of applications including automotive and marine.
The BigFoot LH19E Deluxe Edition Kit is a complete system, comprising of three polishing pads and three compounds, all designed to work together, in perfect harmony to complete even the most challenging of detailing jobs. The BigFoot Claw Pad Tool is a dual use product, one end is a brush for cleaning pads whilst they're still on the polisher, the other acts as a wedge for easier pad removal. Additionally, a BigFoot branded apron is supplied along with a storage bag to keep the kit together.

The LH 19E is the third generation of double gear reduction rotaries and uses a RUPES-designed 1200 watt motor. In practical terms, this allows the detailer to double the torque (2 to 1 reduction as with a transmission) and double the motor speed, which provides better cooling. At the lowest speed setting, with little pressure on the progressive trigger, the tool can operate effectively as low as (around) 100 RPM.
The polishing pads are new foam formulations that have been developed to work with rotary machines. All three pads are made from open cell foam materials to provide a smooth and comfortable polishing experience while minimising excessive heat build-up. The pad profile helps to prevent accidental contact between the backing plate and the vehicle panel.
Blue Foam Coarse Pad:Aggressive pad for the removal of severe defects and sanding marks
Yellow Foam Fine Pad:Eliminates moderate surface defects and imperfections whilst restoring high gloss
White Foam Ultra Fine Pad:New soft foam technology removes fine imperfections and creates a high gloss finish, particularly when used on a rotary machine on dark paint colours
