Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher

Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Polisher – Italian-bred random orbital polisher features superb engineering for a perfect finish

The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher sets the benchmark to which other random orbital polishers are compared.  Rupes, a world-renowned Italian tool maker that has been manufacturing innovative power tools since 1947, set out to develop the smoothest running, most capable random orbital polisher the industry has ever seen.  After years of strenuous research and development, the LHR 15ES and its big brother, the LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polishers were born. 

The  Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher features superb ergonomicsThe Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher gets its name from its impressive 15 millimeter throw. The throw of the machine indicates the size of the orbit the pad makes.  Consider this: a conventional random orbital polisher has a throw between 4 and 8 millimeters.  The advantage of a larger throw is that more surface area is being covered as you polish.  This means you’ll be able to remove swirls, scratches, water spots and other paint defects in considerably less time.  The Rupes LHR 15ES utilizes a 5 inch hook and loop backing plate designed to accommodate 5.5 inch and 6 inch pads – the perfect size for modern vehicles with curvy panels and sharp body lines. 

The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher ensures a perfect finish with its random orbital motion and exceptionally large throw.  One of the biggest advantages of the LHR 15ES is that no swirls or holograms (also referred to as buffer trails) are instilled into the paint as you polish.  A conventional rotary/circular polisher, while very effective at polishing paint to remove defects, leaves swirls and holograms in the finish as a result of its direct drive, circular motion.  Simply put, the Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher leaves you with a perfect finish that’s free of swirls and holograms – all without the risk of burning through the paint.  The Rupes LHR 15ES is so easy to use that even a novice can have the polisher mastered after only one panel!

The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher features a variable speed trigger with lockThe Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher is the smoothest running random orbital polisher available.  Like a fine Italian sports car, the Rupes LHR 15ES features remarkable engineering and exquisite craftsmanship; the ergonomics along with fit and finish on the LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher are superb.  The soft-start system guarantees an acceleration ramp to prevent accidental dispersion of your compound and polish while the electronic feedback control maintains constant speed in all applications.  The energy-efficient 500 watt motor and large, 15 millimeter stroke makes the Rupes LHR 15ES capable of removing up to 1500 grit sanding marks!

The Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher features a variable speed dial and trigger lock that go hand-in-hand with the carefully designed body of the tool; features like this make the Rupes LHR 15ES the obvious choice for extended polishing sessions.  Whether you’re a seasoned professional or someone who simply demands the best of the best, the Rupes LHR 15ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher will deliver. 

The Rupes LHR 15ES is the smoothest running random orbital polisher money can buy The Rupes LHR 15ES has features you won't find on any other random orbital polisher

 

The Rupes LHR 15ES includes a 5 inch hook and loop backing plate.  Due to the machine’s large stroke, it is recommended to only use Rupes approved pads and accessories with the machine.

Fantastic DA Polisher That Increases Productivity
April 23, 2014
My first DA polisher was a Griot's Garage 6 inch DA polisher, which I still think is an excellent product. I did my first few corrections with the GG, and what I didn't like about it was the noise and the vibration. I purchased the 15ES mostly as a luxury item, and I chose the 15ES over the 21 because I really didn't have to worry about the constancy of turning over vehicles in a timely manner because I'm not a professional detailer. The Rupes 15ES is beautifully crafted. It is solid but relatively light weight. It is well-balanced when being held. The palm rest at the working end of the instrument allows me to apply an appropriate pressure to the device without fatiguing my left hand or fingers, and the long handle in the back allows my right hand to stabilize the polisher and guide it along in concert with my left hand. I can accomplish this much more easily that I could with my GG, which is a bit thicker and more of an effort to grasp with my hands. (I don't mean to imply that it's an unbearable effort, but it does take more energy over the course of a detail to hold and balance the GG compared to the 15ES.) The handle is nice in that it has a trigger and a locking switch closely related to the speed dial. The GG is not designed that way. The 15ES has a very large throw, and this exceeds the other DA polishers except the Rupes 21 of course. This allows you to cover more ground when doing your section passes. The available pads that are available to the Rupes 15ES are top notch, and the blue and green ones have great cutting capabilities. I have also used the 15ES with LC CCS pads and the LC hybrid wool pads. They all work very nicely with the 15ES. I've been very happy with my purchase of this tool, and I intend to use it as my primary DA polisher. I have since converted my GG 6 inch to one with a 3.5 inch backing plate for use in areas that require less throw and smaller pads. I think a GG 6 inch converted to a 3 or 3.5 inch is more powerful than the often maligned stock GG 3 inch DA polisher.
Pros:
Nicely crafted. Well-balanced in your hands. Relatively quiet. Easy to manipulate, guide and control. Works with a variety of pads.
Cons:
1. The price is high for this device. I don't know if you get what you pay for, but in my opinion, it does handle better than the GG DA polisher. 2. Warranty is for 1 year, which is substantially less than the lifetime warranty for GG. 3. Electric cord is relatively short, thus requiring an extension cord for freedom of movement.

Worth every penny!
August 14, 2013
I recently purchased this item and I don't think I can live without it now. So many different and effective ways and combinations to use this tool. Micro fiber pads add an amazing finish. Buffing out swirls and even moderate oxidation are easy as ever because of the large throw this machine offers. Bottom line great machine👍
