What tools do these kits work with?
The D-A Trial Kits are compatible with any full-size orbital tool. This includes both random orbital tools and gear-driven orbital tools. Kits are available in configurations that include 150mm pads for tools like the LHR15 or LHR12E or 180mm for tools like the LHR21 or LK900E equipped with the larger backing plate. See the brochures for each kit for the specific part numbers and additional compatibility guidance.
How do I know which size kit I need?
There are two versions of each kit available, 150mm and 180mm. If you have an LHR21 or an LK900E Mille with the larger backing plate you’ll want the 180mm kit. Those part codes will have the measurement of 180mm as a segment of the part code (i.e. – 9.COARSE180KIT). If you have an LHR15, LHR12E, or run the smaller backing plate on your LK900E Mille you’ll want to select a kit with the 150mm part code (i.e. – 9.COARSE150KIT).
All kit boxes will also include tool compatibility information printed on the exterior and your authorized RUPES distributor can assist you with choosing the right option for use with your polisher.
Does anything else come in the kit?
In addition to the pads, compound, and towels each kit includes a FREE BigFoot Claw Pad Tool. It also will include inserts with QR code links to exclusive D-A Trail Kit Training videos and information about the products so when you’re ready to reorder you have everything you need.
Do you have a D-A Trial Kit for the smaller tools?
At this time we only offer D-A Trial Kits for full-sized polishers like the LHR15 and LHR21. We may offer a similar kit for edgework tools like the LHR75E mini in the future, but nothing has been made official.
Is there a discount for buying multiple kits?
RUPES does not sell direct to the consumer, so for pricing or bundles please contact an authorized distributor. They’ll be able to help you with anything related to pricing or purchase information.
I don’t own a BigFoot polisher yet, will these kits work with my current polisher?
The D-A Systems are optimized to work with any orbital tool movement, so not only will they work with other brands of orbital tools, they may actually improve their performance, balance, and user experience.
Will this kit work with my rotary polisher?
No. The D-A (for dual action) Trial Kits are designed and optimized for use with orbital tools. The pad type of compound formulation is not well suited to the unique stresses created by rotary tools.
What if I can’t find the D-A Trial Kit at my local distributor?
The D-A Trial Kits are available to all of our authorized distribution partners, but if your local options are not stocking them you can always find them with one of our preferred e-commerce partners.
