Rupes Launches Next Generation of BigFoot Polishers

RUPES Launches Next Generation of BigFoot Polishers

The BigFoot MarkII LHR 21 and LHR 15 feature a significant increase in deliverable power, the strengthening of the front housing assembly and more.


RUPES has launched the successors of the BigFoot polishers: BigFoot MarkII LHR 21 and LHR 15. Along with additional products, the new polishers will be presented at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

BigFoot LHR 21 and LHR 15 have “revolutionized the way detailers and body shop technicians worldwide approach polishing.” Complying with the commitment to create products and systems able to change the traditional polishing paradigm, RUPES is now introducing the second generation of these tools, the BigFoot MarkII line.

MarkII tools are the product of extensive market research and feedback from users of the BigFoot tools. The new MarkII generation of tools will have a number of enhancements that have been requested by those who are best suited to suggest improvements – RUPES’ mutual end user base.

Significant increase in deliverable power, the strengthening of the front housing assembly and several other features of the MarkII generation are just some examples of the innovations designed into the new production concept.

The MarkII tools feature a more powerful motor with over 30 percent enhanced efficiency when compared to the BigFoot LHR 15 and LHR 21 models. The additional torque eliminates stalling on concave areas, and the higher RPM level guarantees time savings in any polishing step. The MarkII tools consume less energy than the legacy BigFoot tools, yet deliver more power and efficiency. MarkII has improved ergonomics, design stability and balance.

Technicians will appreciate a comfortable rubber grip on the underside of the front housing, the enhanced stability of the front housing itself and the addition of a “shoulder rest” so that the tool can rest comfortably and safely when not in use.
