Coupled with the massive 12 mm throw, makes the Rupes Duetto is a vital component to every detail. Working off of the design of its predecessor, the Rupes 15ES and 21ES, Rupes wanted to offer a machine that was the most user-friendly, lightest and most efficient action polisher in the market. The LHR 12E Duetto delivers on just that. It is clearly one of the best machines we have tested and used yet. The Rupes LHR 12E Duetto includes a 5 inch backing plate designed to be used with both 5.5 and 6 inch pads. Extensive research and testing on random orbital dynamics resulted in the choice of a 12mm orbit for the Duetto. This orbit length greatly improves the surface rectification abilities of the latest generation of microfiber and foam discs. Duetto is an amazing polisher due to its precise engineering and concern for operator control and comfort. Duetto is manageable and comfortable in every situation and quickly provides excellent results. Duetto has all the features of the BigFoot system, neatly packaged in a compact and maneuverable body. Duetto's 12mm orbit places it at the very top of the compact machine category in speed, comfort and manageability.

Ergonomically Perfect With its non-slip rubber inserts on the front cover, the Rupes LHR 12E Duetto is perfect for all polishing operations in difficult to reach areas. The operator can produce the best results possible with little to no fatigue. Anti-Spinning Shroud The dual function anti-spinning shroud is designed to protect the operator against the moving parts and act as a clutch for the backing plate, preventing further stress on the foam polishing pad when it is not in direct contact with the surface. Design The attention to detail is not limited to just the innovative and attractive design. The modern lines and exceptional technical quality are combined with a number of details that are the result of meticulous research aimed at achieving maximum operator comfort. The non-slip rubber inserts are numerous and have many functions. In particular, the insert on the machine body is used to support the polisher when placed on a surface. Electronic Speed Control Module The speed controller is both practical and easy to use. The speed of the polisher can also be easily adjusted without interrupting the work.
