Our flagship polishing system, BigFoot random orbital, is evolving. The polishing system that has changed the polishing game forever continues to improve and show exactly why RUPES BigFoot polishers are the choice of top professionals around the world. Incorporating a number of enhancements and further refinement to the class-leading design the Mark III is will begin shipping to authorized RUPES distributors in the USA on March 1, 2019.
The rubberized front grip of the MarkIII offers exceptional comfort for the operator while providing a non-slip surface for control. The improved rear handle also integrates rubberized surfaces for improved feel. Two strategically placed, non-marking, tool rests provide stability when the tool is not in use as well as additional protection against unintended impact. The continued refinement of the BigFoot random orbital platform in MarkIII reinforces its best in class reputation, making the best even better.
TUNED ELECTRONIC SPEED MODULE
The new electronic speed control dial allows for easy adjustment of the top speed of the polisher without requiring the operator to move his hands. The larger dial is easily adjusted with a move of the thumb. High visibility numbers and a more positive feedback from the movement of the dial make speed changes feel more deliberate, allowing operators to select the ideal speed for the task without any interruption to the polishing process. The module has also been tuned to deliver peak torque and speed in the optimal dial ranges.
Adding an additional layer of control is the new progressive trigger. Acting as a throttle to control speeds within the dial range, the progressive trigger allows the operator to make subtle adjustments for precise control without interruption of the process or need to reposition the grip to access the speed dial. The linear delivery of power allows for very fine adjustment within each speed range giving technicians a whole new dimension of control.
The Mark III comes standard with a 9 meter (29.6 ft) cord on both the LHR15 and LHR21 models. The longer cord provides users enough length to move more effortlessly around their workshop or studio without the need for additional extension cords or searching for a nearby outlet.
The Mark III will begin shipping to Authorized RUPES Distributors in the USA on March 1, 2019. Initial demand is expected to be very high so we suggest you contact your preferred or local distributor to inquire about availability. Because RUPES USA does not sell directly to the public we cannot provide specific prices; however, we can confidently state that the prices for the Mark III tools will be extremely similar to the previous generation in spite of the numerous enhancements and upgrades to the design.
