RUPES - HLR75 Ibrid
The new RUPES BIGFOOT HLR75 iBRID MINI POLISHER represents the evolution of RUPES tools with iBrid dual-power technology. Ideally suited for polishing applications in curves, contours and tight spaces, the HLR75 iBrid Mini features a 12 mm orbit and Ø75 mm (3 inch) backing plate for maneuverability and control accurate.
RUPES' patented iBrid technology concept, first featured on the BigFoot iBrid Nano family of tools, increases process efficiency and optimizes user experience by giving technicians the flexibility to choose the platform to power supply that best suits the specific situation or application. Use battery power for cordless operation or insert the iBrid power adapter and operate continuously on wired power. The power and performance of the iBrid Mini is identical regardless of power choice thanks to a specialized motor platform designed, developed and manufactured in-house by RUPES.
The HLR75 features a revolutionary design for the polishing world, unlike any polishing tool seen before. Ergonomics have been optimized by reimagining the design of the polisher. The BigFoot HLR75 iBrid Mini Polisher is extremely comfortable and easy to use in a variety of grip and hand positions. The unique design provides incredible maneuverability and balance to ensure precise and efficient polishing results while minimizing operator fatigue.
Innovative iBrid technology allows the RUPES iBrid family of tools to be configured for battery or mains operation. Unlike battery-only tools or cord-only tools, iBrid tools allow the operator to choose their preferred power platform or switch between power sources. Performance is the same regardless of the power source.
DESIGN AND ERGONOMICS
Extensive study and research into ergonomics has resulted in a reinvented polishing tool form factor. Modern lines and carefully considered hand positions are combined with exceptional technical quality to create a polisher that changes our outlook on tool design and our expectations of user comfort. Creating a brilliant shine has never been so enjoyable.
The HLR75 is perfect for polishing applications on curved surfaces or compact areas where full size polishers are neither effective nor safe. The small tool dimensions, 12 mm orbital stroke and Ø75 mm (3 inch) backing plate allow the iBrid Mini to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of polishing operations, especially on the complex designs of today's modern cars.
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL MODULE
The speed control dial is highly visible and easy to adjust. It allows the operator to select or change the speed of the polisher without interrupting the application process.
Derived from the actuation levers commonly used on air tools, the ergonomic, rubberized variable speed lever provides precise control and total operator comfort while adding a layer of safety that will disable the tool in the event of a fall or sliding of the operator's handle.
BATTERY AND BATTERY CHARGING
Lithium-ion battery cells (18V 2.5Ah) with LED indicators show charge level at the push of a button. A full charge allows between 35 and 45 minutes of continuous run time.
The HLR75 iBrid Mini Battery Charger is custom designed to fit the iBrid Mini's unique battery system. The charging station indicates charging status using built-in LED lights and delivers a 100% charge from zero to full in approximately 35 minutes.
