Rupes LK900E Mille Gear Driven Dual Action Polisher
Rupes Mille Gear Driven Dual Action Polisher
Joining the BIGFOOT family of tools to bridge the gap between rotary and free spinning orbital polishers the Mille provides a balance of power, ergonomics, and capability for operators who crave a gear driven solution. Featuring a wide assortment of new, innovative features as well as a revolutionary clockwise rotational movement the BIGFOOT Mille delivers powerful defect removal, versatility, and consistent performance in an ergonomic package designed with operator comfort and efficiency of work in mind.
GEAR DRIVEN: the backing plate follows an orbit (the scope of which depends on the distance between the rotation axis of the drive shaft and the central axis of the rotor disc) and is at the same time constrained to rotate about its own central axis (typically due to the inclusion of a gearing). The number of orbits at each revolution of the disc is always constant and depends on the parameters of
the gearing used. The gear movement is more aggressive on surfaces with respect to the random orbital movement and generates a generally higher vibration level.
The BIGFOOT Mille uses a specially designed electric motor, developed in-house by RUPES. This design allows for a clockwise rotational movement which translates to increased levels of control and comfort for the operator. Competitive tools feature a counter-clockwise movement which can increase unwanted lateral movement and create fatigue for the operator.
9 METERS ELECTRICAL CORD
The new Heavy Duty extra long 9mt cord is gauged to deliver maximum power to the polisher for safe, efficient operation. The longer cord save you time, steps and hassles since the user doesn’t have to use additional extension cords when polishing around a car.
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL DIAL
An all new variable speed dial provides the ability to adjust speeds for specific applications. The dial features larger numbers, a click sensation to indicate speed changes, and is positioned for effortless adjustment during the polishing process.
Adding an additional level of control, the Mille includes a progressive trigger. This new trigger design acts as a throttle allowing the operator to control speeds within the dial range to deliver the exact desired speed and to adjust quickly as needed.
DOUBLE RUBBER SUPPORT
Every aspect of the Mille has been considered in the design, even when the tool is not being used. Two rubber supports are positioned on the body of the machine to keep it stable when resting on a table or cart.
The RUPES BigFoot LK900E ‘Mille’ was designed with the aim of providing a forced rotation machine that offered faster-cutting capability than other gear driven models and also faster cutting than the BigFoot LHR21 MK II or the BigFoot LHR15 MK II. As a result, the Mille provides exceptional cutting power with minimal heat generation and very little steering, more in line with a standard DA. The RUPES-designed Mille’s electric motor allows it to operate with a clockwise rotation, reducing unwanted lateral movement and therefore reducing operator fatigue.

FORCED ROTATION POLISHER FOR FASTER CUTTING
Forced rotation, or gear driven polishers, provide a half-way point between the cutting action of a rotary polisher and the safety of a dual action (DA). The toothed gear forces both the rotation and the orbit in a more consistent pattern than a standard DA and continues to do so no matter how much pressure is applied to the machine. This allows for a more concentrated cutting action that can be found with free spinning DA polishers. Retaining the orbit/rotation pattern, heat build-up can be controlled more easily than with a rotary polisher.
The new range of foam pads features a low profile, having been designed to maximise the transmission of the gear-driven movement to the working surface, reducing pad distortion and thereby improving stability and control. The tapered edge helps minimise the chances of the edges of the polisher connecting with the car’s panel during operation.
