The three critical system components are designed to work in combination to guarantee low vibration levels and
the best possible polishing result.The BigFoot systems are designed for maximum efficiency, ease of use and operator comfort. Using BigFoot with RUPES original backing padsand RUPES original polishing pads results in a technical system that guarantees the best possible polishing result and ensures that the tool has perfect balance and a substantially reduced vibration level. The use of backing pads or compound carriers other than members of the BigFoot family of products can lead to a reduction in performance and can further affect the technical and mechanical characteristics of the tool, changing its balance and increasing vibration. Increased vibration not only affects the comfort and overall safety of the operator, but also results in significantly diminished tool life.
