Rated 4.9 out of 5
14 Reviews

The next generation of Rupes is here – The Rupes Bigfoot LHR21 and LHR15 MarkII Polishers. Built with everything that made the original Rupes LHR 21 & 15 one of the best, the new Rupes MarkII series are going to blow you away. Correct your paint faster and more efficiently than ever before. With improvements made to both the body, chassis, and motor, the Rupes LHR15 Mark II provides 30% more efficiency than the original machines, making correcting your paint smoother than ever before.

The Rupes BigFoot LHR15 MarkII has the same, extra-large 15 millimeter throw as the original LHR15, making correcting paint something you’ll want to do for hours. The smooth experience is what you’ve been waiting for.Improvements made to the body of the tool feature a stronger, reinforced housing. We’ve all dropped our machines a time or two (but never on the paint, right!?) and this new housing helps to protect the insides of our new machine.

Also new on the Rupes BigFoot LHR15 MarkII are rubber inserts INSIDE the tool that improve the handling and provide a better level of comfortability while in use.The new rubber tool rest on top of the machine allows you to set the polisher down pad-up and not contaminate either your pad or the paint you’re working on.

Now to the information we’ve been looking for: the new Rupes BigFoot LHR15 Mark11 motor specs.The LHR15 Mark11 does feature a higher starting RPM (2500 compared to the original LHR15’s 2000), giving it a little more power and torque to the buffing pad. The 500 watt power draw is the same, but the LHR15 MarkII feels a little more powerful.

If you’ve been looking around and wanting to upgrade your current polisher collection, the new Rupes BigFoot LHR15 MarkII is just what you’ve been waiting for.

Technical Specs:
  • RPM Speed: 2500 to 5300
  • Power: 500 Watts
  • Weight of Tool: 5.73 lbs.
  • Orbit Stroke Length: 15 mm
  • Length of machine: 12.5 inches
The Rupes BigFoot LHR15 MarkII includes a 5 inch backing plate.

Rupes Bigfoot

This machine is great and well built/designed. Going from Porter Cable and Rotary, this thing is much easier to use and cuts just as fast with blue wool.

Worthwhile upgrade

As a weekend warrior, this upgrade from our favorite overseas hardware store DA was astonishing both in terms of comfort, and performance.

If you're on the fence, go for it. This is definitely an investment, one that can pay for itself.

The next step in orbitals

This was a big investment, especially when this is a hobby and not for a living. After using a Porter Cable Orbital for years, it was time for an upgrade. Phil yet fails to disappoint, recommending Rupes has been a great investment. It’s great to handle, lighter, quieter and more importantly, the locking mechanism is fantastic. It’s design is great for position and handling, not to mention the vibration isn’t as harsh, and it’s easy on the wrists. It cut my time by almost half, depending how far you want to go, 12 hours is enough for me.
