RUPES BigFoot LH 19E – A Rotary That Works At Low Speeds!
The LH 19E is the third generation of double gear reduction rotaries and uses a RUPES-designed 1200 watt motor. In practical terms, this allows the detailer to double the torque (2 to 1 reduction as with a transmission) and double the motor speed, which provides better cooling. At the lowest speed setting, with little pressure on the progressive trigger, the tool can operate effectively as low as (around) 100 RPM.
Rotary machines typically have faster speed settings when compared with dual action polishers. Whilst this allows for enhanced cutting ability, it can be overly aggressive for more sensitive detailing jobs. This often results in two machine polishers being required, one rotary and one dual action to complete one detailing job. However, the RUPES BigFoot LH19E changes that. The BigFoot LH 19E Rotary Polisher features a high torque, compact design in a lightweight housing. This makes it one of the most capable and manoeuvrable rotary polishers available and is suitable for use in a variety of applications including automotive and marine. The BigFoot LH 19E Standard Kit includes two polishing pads and two compounds, designed to work together, to complete even the most challenging of detailing jobs.
- LH 19E Rotary Machine Polisher
- 150mm / 6 inch Backing plate
- Blue Rotary Coarse Compound – 1L
- Yellow Fine Compound – 1L
- Blue Foam Coarse Pad – 160mm / 6.5 inch

The polishing pads are new foam formulations that have been developed to work with rotary machines. All three pads are made from open cell foam materials to provide a smooth and comfortable polishing experience while minimising excessive heat build up. The pad profile helps to prevent accidental contact between the backing plate and the vehicle panel.
- Blue Foam Coarse Pad: Aggressive pad for the removal of severe defects and sanding marks
- Yellow Foam Fine Pad: Eliminates moderate surface defects and imperfections whilst restoring high gloss
