RUPES BigFoot LK900E Mille Gear Driven Polisher with 5"/6" Backing Plates, LK900E/US/STD
RUPES BigFoot LK900E Mille Gear Driven Polisher with 5" and 6" Backing Plates (LK900E/US/STD) bridges the gap between random orbital and rotary polishers.
The LK 900 Mille offers a balance of power, ergonomics and capability for operators who prefer a forced-action movement but don’t want the unwanted risk or side effects associated with rotary polishers. Unlike other forced action tools on the market, the innovated design of the Mille drives the rotation of the tool in a clockwise direction making the movement feel more familiar and comfortable.
Like all the tools in the BigFoot family, the LK 900E features numerous ergonomic touches to make it comfortable and efficient.
Clockwise Rotation - The Mille uses a specially designed electric motor, developed in-house by RUPES, to allow for clockwise rotation of the tool movement. This translates to an increased level of control and comfort for the operator. Competitive tools feature counter-clockwise rotation which can increase unwanted lateral movement and fatigue for the operator. The Mille comes standard with both 5" 980.037 and 6" 981.089 backing plate options allowing the user to choose the pad diameter that best suits their needs or situation.
Tuned Electric 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.
Progressive Trigger - 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.
Longer Cord - comes standard with a 9 meter (29.6 ft) cord. 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.
