The 5 Different Types of RUPES Polishers

Random Orbital, Rotary, Forced Rotation, Pneumatic, Cordless

img
Rupes Bigfoot Mark III

Dual Action Polisher (Long Throw)

The polishing pad moves in a random orbit, or Free-Spinning Orbital. Low risk polishing tool, mitigating the cause of swirl marks and least invasive to the paint.

img
Rupes Rotary

Featuring a high torque motor, compact and lightweight design, and premium ergonomics the LH 19E BigFoot rotary polisher is one of the most capable and maneuverable rotary polishers on the market today. Most invasive to paint and likely to require multiple polishing stages.

Rupes Mille

Gear driven orbital polisher (Forced Rotation)

 

Bridging the gap between random orbital and rotary is the BigFoot LK 900E Mille Gear-Driven polisher. This tool offers a balance of power, ergonomics, and capability for operators who prefer a forced-action movement but don’t want the unwanted risk or side effects associated with rotary polishers. Unlike other forced action tools on the market, the innovated design of the Mille drives the rotation of the tool in a clockwise direction making the movement feel more familiar and comfortable. Great for gel-coat and harder paint surfaces.

Rupes Pneumatic

Random Orbital Polisher

This combination allows the tool to work in awkward and difficult to reach areas with incredible speed and efficiency. The reduced size and high cutting capacity make the LHR75 the ideal polisher for spot repairs, polishing contoured areas and parts such as mirrors and pillars.

2. Set the speed of the polisher to "2".

 

3. Angle the pad and run the pad right to left picking up the compound on the upper two thirds of the pad and run the polisher to a speed of "3".

 

4. Once you have picked up all of the compound run the pad on the surface, face down, for twenty  seconds.

img
Testing a Spot

Test the pad and compound on a section of the panel that is six times the size of the pad (imagine a rectangle with six imaginary pads) and polish the area 2 - 3 times, slow arm speed in about 30-45 seconds on speed between 2 and 4.

 

After you have performed a test polish, adjust the pad and compound accordingly to the results.
