RUpes takes SEMA 2015 to launch their MarkII line, the second generation of BigFoot polishers! Below is the press release directly from Rupes outlining these incredible new polishers.
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 going to introduce the second generation of these tools, the BigFoot MarkII line. MarkII is next generation of the legacy BigFoot LHR 15 and LHR 21 tools. MarkII tools are the product of extensive market research and feedback from users of the legacy BigFoot tools. Get ready for an unparalleled polishing experience featuring both enhanced power and smoothness of operation! The new “MarkII” generation tools will have a number of enhancements that have been requested by those that are best suited to suggest improvements-our 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 example of the innovations designed into the new production concept. The MarkII tools feature a more powerful motor with over 30% enhanced efficiency when compared to the legacy 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 amazingly deliver more power and efficiency. MarkII has both improved ergonomics, design stability and balance. Technicians will really 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.The new RUPES polishers and the groundbreaking manufacturing concepts behind them prove that innovation is embedded into the genetic code of the company. Our goal is to always understand the present and never stop designing for the future.
