    Re: RUPES Lhr15es mk11, mini or duetto

    Would you go for the 15 or 21. Fund not an issue. Is there a big difference between the two, apart obviously from the bigger throw?

    You'd be better off getting a PC and putting a 3" backing plate on it, or if you already have a PC put a 3" or 3.5" bp, you can run 3" and 4" pads that way. Much better correctibility than the GG3. That's how I ran until I could afford the mini

    21 will have more pad spinning torque based on momentum alone. It will cut noticeably faster, BUT, the 15 is no slouch. The 21mm throw makes it less versatile, even with a 5" backing plate.

    id go either mark II flex xfe 15(but with 5 in BP) or G15
    if you cant afford those, gg6...then when you can afford one of the above you can upgrade GG6 with 3in BP

    duetto and mini are under powered(but havent tried them with LC thin pros yet or aluminum BP

    You will be amazed at how smoothly it runs with yellow/white Rupes pads. Megs microfiber cutting discs spin well too.

    What set ups (pad/polish) did you use with them? I find them to be adequately powered.

    I got a call to take care of some patches of 2000 grit sanding marks with the Zephir/blue microfiber, on a resprayed caddy. It did a very nice job cleaning it up.

    I guess I can't say whether the Duetto is under powered or not since I have nothing to compare it to, but I really love mine.

    It's very smooth running, and I haven't had issues with stalling on concave sections or while edging it. I just let the machine do the work. And like Dlc said, it spins like mad with the washer mod.

    If the LHR 15 and 21 are that much more powerful like has been said, then they must really kick but.
