Dual Function: Sanding & Polishing
The Rupes LHR 12E Duetto and its 12 mm orbit can be used with fine grit abrasives to speed up deep correction operations. The tool can then use foam pads and polishing compounds to refine the abrasive scratches and restore a flawless finish.
With its non-slip rubber inserts on the front cover, the Rupes LHR 12E Duetto is perfect for all polishing operations in difficult to reach areas. The operator can produce the best results possible with little to no fatigue.
The dual function anti-spinning shroud is designed to protect the operator against the moving parts and act as a clutch for the backing plate, preventing further stress on the foam polishing pad when it is not in direct contact with the surface.
The attention to detail is not limited to just the innovative and attractive design. The modern lines and exceptional technical quality are combined with a number of details that are the result of meticulous research aimed at achieving maximum operator comfort. The non-slip rubber inserts are numerous and have many functions. In particular, the insert on the machine body is used to support the polisher when placed on a surface.
Electronic Speed Control Module
The speed controller is both practical and easy to use. The speed of the polisher can also be easily adjusted without interrupting the work.

One thing that is immediately apparent is the build quality, fit, and finish. Operation is refined and effortless. The compact size allows for extremely easy maneuvering around almost every surface of the vehicle.
The Duetto features higher opm than even the new Mark II 21, and 15 tools. This increase in rotation helps make up for the lack of rotation. I have a difficult time seeing that much of an increase in performance of a 21 over the Duetto.
Remember to keep the shroud lubricated. I personally prefer using this tool without any type of modification. I also prefer using Rupes proprietary pads and liquids.
It has worked effectively in both production environments, high end retail work, and recreational home vehicle maintenance.
The Duetto easily out performs any of the popular tools sharing it's body design, like the Porter Cable 7424xp, and Griot's Garage GG6. I want to say it does it's job in about half the time of the competitive tools.
The Mini is a natural companion to this tool.
