Rupes Bigfoot HLR75 Mini iBrid Polisher
"The Mini is awesome. Ergonomic, quiet, effective..."
- Todd Cooperider after using the new Mini iBrid during pre-release testing
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 compact spaces, the HLR75 iBrid Mini features a 12mm orbit and Ø75mm (3-inch) backing plate for maneuverability and precise control.
The RUPES Patented iBrid Technology concept, first featured on the BigFoot iBrid Nano family of tools, increases process efficiency, and optimizes the user experience by giving technicians the option to choose the power platform that best suits the specific situation or application. Use battery power for cordless operation or insert the iBrid Power Adapter and run continuously on corded power. The output 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 reimaging polisher design. 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 guarantee precise and efficient polishing results while minimizing operator fatigue.
Innovative iBrid Technology allows the RUPES iBrid family of tools to be configured to run on either battery or corded power. Unlike battery-only tools or corded-only tools, iBrid tools allow the operator to choose their preferred power platform or switch from one power source to another. Performance is identical regardless of power source.
DESIGN AND ERGONOMICS
The HLR75 is perfect for polishing applications on curved surfaces or compact areas where full-sized polishers are not effective or safe. The small tool dimensions, 12mm orbital stroke, and Ø75mm (3-inch) backing plate allow the iBrid Mini to maximize efficiency and effectiveness of polishing operations, especially on today’s complex modern car designs.
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 actuator levers commonly seen on pneumatic tools, the ergonomic and rubberized variable speed lever provides precise control and full operator comfort while adding a layer of safety that will de-activate the tool in the event it is dropped or slips from the operator’s grip.
BATTERY AND BATTERY CHARGER
Lithium-ion battery cells (18V 2.5Ah) with LED indicators show the charge level with the push of a button. A full charge allows for between 35 and 45 minutes of continuous operating time.
The HLR75 iBrid Mini Battery Charger is custom designed to fit the iBrid Mini’s unique battery pack system. The charging station indicates charge status using integrated LED lights and provides 100% charge from zero to full in approximately 35 minutes.
