Product Overview:

RUPES BigFoot iBrid Mini HSE73 3" x 5" (80mm x 130mm) 5/64" (2mm) Orbital Self-Generating Vacuum Sander Starter Kit (HSE73/STB) represents the evolution of RUPES tools with iBrid dual-power technology. Ideal for the sanding and finishing of wood, composite, paint, plaster and other surfaces in virtually any industry.

This Mini Sander features a 3" x 5" (80mm x 130mm) multi-hole backing pad for maximum vacuum efficiency. The 5/64" (2mm) orbital movement provides a more energy efficient solution, increased performance, a finer finish and time savings compared to traditional sanders.

The HSE73 also features a self-generating dust extraction system; no need for an external extraction unit, simply connect the patented RUPES Green Tech Filter (80.400/C), for unmatched, incredible maneuverability and balance to guarantee precise and efficient sanding results. May also be connected to a shop vacuum with an electric vacuum hose (9GAT2001) if desired, sold separately. Pair this tool with any 3" x 5" grip abrasive sanding strips in any vacuum pattern for excellent dust extraction.

Features soft start and throttle lever with variable speed provides precision control of tool operation, while the speed control dial guarantees five working speeds from 6,000 to 11,000 RPM for versatility. Optimized ergonomics, compact design and modern lines make this tool very comfortable and easy to use in a variety of grip and hand positions.

The two included RUPES 9HB180LT super-fast charging Lithium-Ion batteries allows for continuous work and no down time!

This RUPES HSE73/STB Starter Kit includes the iBrid Mini HSE73 Sander (HSE73), Greentech Filter (80.400/C), 2x iBrid Mini Li-Ion Batteries (9HB180LT) and iBrid Mini Charging Station (9HC180LT).

Features and Benefits:

In-dept studies and research in ergonomics have resulted in a reimagined polishing tool form factor. Modern lines and carefully considered hand positions are combined with exceptional technical quality to create a sander that changes the way we look at tool design and what we expect in terms of user comfort. 

The HSE73 is perfect for sanding and finishing applications. The small tool dimensions, 2mm orbital stroke and 3" x 5" (80mm x 130mm) backup pad allow the iBrid Mini to maximize efficiency and effectiveness of sanding operations. Features a self-generating dust extraction system that enables the tool without an external vacuum to remove dust by connecting the patented RUPES Green Tech Filter (80.400/C). May also be connected to a shop vacuum with an electric vacuum hose (9GAT2001) if desired, sold separately. Pair this tool with any 3" x 5" grip abrasive sanding discs in any vacuum pattern for excellent dust extraction.

The speed control dial is highly visible and easy to adjust. It allows the operator to select or change the speed of the polisher without interrupting the application process.

Derived from actuator levers commonly seen on pneumatic tools, the ergonomic and rubberized variable speed lever provides precise control and full operator comfort while adding a layer of safety that will de-activate the tool in the event it is dropped or slips from the operator’s grip.

The RUPES 9HB180LT Lithium-ion battery cells (18V 2.5Ah) with LED indicators show the charge level with the push of a button. A full charge allows for between 35 and 45 minutes of continuous operating time. The HLR75 iBrid Mini Battery Charger is custom designed to fit the iBrid Mini’s unique battery pack system. The charging station indicates charge status using integrated LED lights and provides 100% charge from zero to full in approximately 35 minutes.
