Product Overview:

Experience excellence, the RUPES Skorpio III is what every random orbital sander operator needs, an extremely quiet tool that has tremendous power and low vibration. The newly designed pneumatic Skorpio III is the quietest random orbital sander in its class.

The RUPES Skorpio III (RH356A) 6" air sander features a 6mm (15/64") random orbit perfectly suited for most sanding tasks, grip multi-hole backup pad for use with 6" grip (Velcro) sanding discs and vacuum port for use with external dust extraction systems. Compared to the 5mm (3/16") orbit of a conventional 6" sander, the 6mm orbit of the RH356A provides 20% greater efficiency yet does not diminish finish quality.

The body is coated with an anti-slip rubber for better handling, the throttle lever is designed to support the operator’s wrist during operation and actually fits perfectly into the tool body to eliminate “pinch points”, the internal balancing of the components results in extremely low vibration and the double row bearings insure greater life and smoother operation.

The internal components of the Skorpio III are so well balanced that operators can actually change the size of the backing pad without compromising the low vibration level of the tool. It is now possible to choose the backing pad diameter that you need 5" (125mm) or 6" (150mm), without changing tools!

Pair with RUPES #9GAT2004/AS Anti-static Coaxial Air / Vacuum Hose for ultimate performance.

Features and Benefits:

RUPES SKORPIO III Picture New Heavy Duty Motor
The new high performance motor built in sintered steel is designed to provide the best power to weight ratio with a lower air consumption. Designed to minimize tool noise and lower vibration level, the new motor reduces internal friction for a higher power transfer ratio, simplified maintenance and longer tool life.
RUPES SKORPIO III Picture Double Row Ball Bearings
A new double-row ball bearing system, designed specifically by the RUPES Research and Development team, results in longer bearing life, greater motor stability and lower vibration levels.
RUPES SKORPIO III Picture Anti Spinning System
The presence of the rubber shroud prevents the tool from operating in free rotation mode. This eliminates the risk of damage to the work surface from a true rotary motion. Further, the shroud allows for more efficient dust extraction by sealing the area between the tool housing and the backup pad.
RUPES SKORPIO III Picture Extremely Well Balanced
RUPES Research and Development team dedicated significant time and effort to create a tool whose internal components are perfectly balanced. The result is a tool that is very low in vibration and ideal for high time-exposure operations.
RUPES SKORPIO III Picture Ergonomic Design
The body is coated with an anti-slip rubber for better handling, the throttle lever is designed to support the operator’s wrist during operation for perfect fit into the tool body to eliminate pinch points, the internal balancing of the components double row bearings results in extremely low vibration and smoother operation.

The 3mm orbit is designed for finishing applications with 320 grit and finer abrasives; small orbit combined with high rpm and quality abrasives delivers a high quality finish that is perfectly prepared for paint and coatings The most popular SKORPIO III, the 6mm orbit features a 20% increase in time efficiency than 5mm random orbit sanders yet still results in the same high quality surface finish when used with medium grit abrasives The 9mm orbit tool is designed primarily for roughing and material removal applications when used with abrasives between 36 and 120 grit; this tool is aggressive but light in weight and ergonomically designed
