With most detailing jobs it is the paint correction process that takes the most amount of time. So, it makes sense to choose only the absolute best when it comes to machine polishers. That’s why at Black River Details we have chosen Rupes tools. Their line up of machine polishers and accessories ensure we achieve the best possible results when correcting the paint. We have invested in their revolutionary Rupes Nano IBrid machine. This tool allows us the get into even the tightest of spaces. The LHR 75 ensures we can match size and contours of the surface being polished. We also use the LHR 15 MkIII, which gives a super-smooth efficient polishing experience. And finally, we use the LHR 21 MkII when we need to cover a lot of surface area in a safe, efficient manner.
So why did we choose Rupes Tools & Machines?
We chose Rupes tools and machines for three main reasons.
- Designed and made in house
- Support and training from the people who make the tools
- An array of supporting products made for these tools and to the same high standards
Designed and made in house:
Rupes do everything in house, from designing the machinery and technology it uses to manufacture the final product. This means that they can maintain the highest standards and keep an eye on every part of the process. They are always looking for ways to improve their tools. They invest time to come up with new technologies, which ensures their place as market leaders. Their latest revision of the Rupes Bigfoot polisher is even more efficient than the last. It has better balancing and ergonomics, meaning a more comfortable polishing experience, which makes for a happy detailer. The process is speedier because of improved power output, especially on the jobs where the paint is heavily scratched and marred. And that means happy clients who get their cars back sooner.
Another big reason why I value a company that does everything inhouse is that the final product ends up being very reliable. The last thing you want as a detailer is to be left with a machine down. Also, when it’s time to service Rupes tools; or in the very rare case a machine needs to be fixed Rupes act very quickly. They never need to wait around for parts as they make everything themselves.
Support and training from the people who make the tools:
As a Rupes certified detailer, I can attest to how important it is to have the proper training to use these machines. When your training comes from the manufacturer you know you’re getting the best advice.
Firstly, they know the most effective way to use the machines. Additionally, they teach you about the technology inside their products and the differences between the different models. As a detailer, when you know the inner workings of these polishers, you can be sure you’ll find it easy to choose the right one for the job in hand, and you’ll get the very best out of them.
But there’s more… Rupes don’t just train you how to use the machines; they also show you the best way to use their whole system, from the pads and polishes to the various accessories. With this training program, you can be comfortable knowing that you have the support of the manufacturer and the training to safely achieve the best possible results.
Something that we appreciate is the fact that Rupes make a full assortment of polishing pads, compounds, polishes and accessories to go with their machines. These have all been designed to work with specific Rupes tools and machines and the movement type they use. Practically, this means that by using a pad that is balanced for a particular machine, you get a machine that runs smoothly. The polishes and compounds are also designed for each machine and the type of movement it uses. The products aren’t a one size fits all; they are fine-tuned to be used for a specific application and with a particular machine.
Having these products means that you don’t have to worry about different pads and polishes messing with the balance of the machine. An unbalanced machine causes more wear and issues down the line. Extra vibration and movement from an unbalanced machine, would also make for a less comfortable experience.
