Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher

Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Polisher – Italian-bred random orbital polisher features the largest throw of any polisher available! 

The Rupes LHR 21ES 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 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher is the smoothest running random orbital polisher availableThe Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher gets its name from its massive, industry leading 21 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 21ES utilizes a 6 inch hook and loop backing plate designed to accommodate 7 inch pads – the perfect size for polishing horizontal and other large body panels. 

The Rupes LHR 21ES 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 21ES 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 21ES 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 21ES is so easy to use that even a novice can have the polisher mastered after only one panel!

The Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher is designed to accomodate a Rupes 7 inch foam padThe Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher has the largest stroke of any polisher on the market.  This gives the LHR 21ES a huge advantage while working on large panels because it enables you to polish a significantly larger area, reducing your overall time and increasing profits if detailing is your profession. 

Next to its little brother, the LHR 15ES, the Rupes LHR 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher is the smoothest running random orbital polisher available.  Like a fine Italian sports car, the Rupes LHR 21ES features remarkable engineering and exquisite craftsmanship; the ergonomics along with fit and finish on the LHR 21ES 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 massive, 21 millimeter stroke makes the Rupes LHR 21ES capable of removing up to 1500 grit sanding marks!

The Rupes LHR 21ES 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 21ES 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 21ES Big Foot Random Orbital Polisher will deliver.

Excellent polisher
First off, I'm pretty much a novice at detailing with a polisher. My previous experience is with a $29 Ryobi vibration machine. Man, this is a step to the moon compared to the Ryobi. I used Wolfgang products on a black 2011 BMW and the paint came out beautiful. I'm still learning the techniques by the pros but I was really amazed at what was accomplished by this polisher especially at my skill level. It's enjoyable to own a quality product no matter what it is and this exceeded my expectations. For me, it is a good investment that will last a lifetime.
ProsWorks great, quality product.
ConsNone that I know of.

I can't say enough about this polisher.
I captain a private yacht in the Miami area, we tried all type and kinds of polishes and polisher. The Rupes is the go to polisher for me. When using my favorite product I get outstanding results with considerably less time needed to do so. Using the Rupes 21 allows me to cover more area in a shorter am out of time, with a big saving in money/labor. You want your work to look like or better than the pro's, buy this polisher, you will not be disappointed.
ProsIt has the ability to cover large areas in less time with little effort.
ConsVery powerful, take care to use it correctly or it will make more work for you.

I "grew up" with the GG DA using MF pads. It worked great. I was considering upgrading to a Flex and read the reviews/comparisons of the Rupes on the forum and chose the Rupes with 5" backing plate. Whoa nellie! Amazing difference. The Rupes is so smooth and effortless it makes it almost effortless to apply compounds, sealants, etc. Fantastic product and I can't recommend it highly enough.
ProsSuper smooth. So much so you can use with one hand.
ConsIt does stop suddenly so it can surprise you.

Best Polisher!
This is the best polisher I have ever used! Incredibly smooth, no vibrations, and plenty of power! I also use the 5" backing plate for smaller panels. The Rupes pads and polishes work incredibly well and I use the system on my personal vehicles.
ProsPower! Versatility! Smooth and easy to use!
ConsExpensive but worth it!

great polisher
Just sold my flex 3401 for the rupes and couldn't be happier. ITs much more enjoyable polishing now because this thing is so smooth and just feels good in your hands.
