Rupes® Bigfoot Duetto LHR12E Random Orbital Polisher
BigFoot LHR12E Duetto is an All-in-one sanding and polishing system for painted surfaces
Duetto is equally effective working with soft or interface backing pads teamed with micro-abrasives during the defect correction step or with foam polishing pads and compounds during the polishing stage. Extensive research on random orbital dynamics and exhaustive testing resulted in the choice of a 12mm orbit for Duetto. This orbit length greatly improves the surface rectification abilities of the latest generation of microabrasive discs. The combination of duetto and microabrasives is especially effective when smoothing orange peel or significant defects. The finish generated by this combination is both homogeneous and predictable, with no deep sanding marks.
The use of microabrasive discs to correct severe defects creates a surface that is easily polished, radically reducing the overall time of the full correction process. Duetto is so well balanced and low in vibration that the operator can easily control the sanding step by simply guiding duetto over the surface. The ability of the operator to control the tool so efficiently minimizes the chances of creating rough and uneven surfaces that require time-consuming rework.
Duetto has several design features that make it uniquely operator friendly.
The anti-spinning device reduces the chances of operator error even for a novice technician. The front hand grip allows the operator to place his/her hand at the virtual balance center of the tool and keeps vibration to a minimum.
The electronic module has built-in torque control, reducing the need for the operator to apply significant downward vertical pressure. Another unique duetto feature is the rubber support that allows the operator to place duetto on a workbench without the abrasive disc touching a surface that might contain contaminants that could transfer to the workpiece during the sanding process. Compatible with microabrasive discs and the appropriate 5” interface pad.
This simple, intuitive and exceptionally comfortable tool allows any operator to tackle even the most challenging polishing operation. The LHR 12E is perfect for deep correction work using foam backed abrasive discs and can then be deployed as an efficient polisher to remove defects and restore a high gloss finish. The 12mm orbit allows the operator exceptional control in difficult applications such as edge and profile work.
The BigFoot LHR12E Duetto Random Orbital Polisher was engineered to allow for smooth polishing and powerful sanding with just one tool. In fact, the word duetto translates to duet from Italian to English, and this BigFoot sings both parts equally well. The BigFoot LHR12E Duetto’s orbit size creates the perfect balance between polishing power, sanding ability, and precise control.
When used as a polisher, the Duetto is extremely smooth and balanced. It is powerful enough to remove P3000 sanding marks while offering the precision to polishing small areas. The LHR12E Duetto’s 12mm orbit size and RUPES BigFoot’s famous counterbalance technology make the Duetto extremely smooth and comfortable to use. When used as a sander, the Duetto’s orbit size offers the potential for quickly remove paint defects and orange peel, making the LHR12E an extremely versatile tool.
