    Rupes LK 900E Mille & LH 19E

    Good News!

    I have been informed that both my Mille DLX and LH19E STN kits have been shipped after a lengthy wait and having paid for them in July already. I can’t wait to put them to the test individually and against all my other polishers. Also, I have already used Rupes new MF and Wool pads but will reserve judgement till I try them out on these new polishers.

    I will do so but please allow a week for delivery and another week to test on a variety of paints so as to conclude with facts and accuracy. I will also be comparing Rupes Blue and Yellow compounds of which there are three different types now, long throw Zephir Blue, Keramik Yellow, Mille Blue Coarse, Yellow Fine Compound, Rotary Coarse and Fine Compounds across all polishers. Yes will compare the new foam,mf and wool pads and try them across the different Rupes polishers too.

    Global demand for both has exceeded expectations and they selling faster than they can make them. Everyone is either out of stock or awaiting stock with waiting lists well into 2018. This is from a few retailers based on preorders.

    Quick update, first impressions of the Mille and LH19E are very positive.

    Very interested in the Mille compared to the 3401. Any comparison likely?

    I have 2 x 3401’s with all bp options, tested against Mille with just the 5” bp as its a real pain to swop bp’s, 6 screws and aligning the gasket is no quick task. To swop bp’s on the 3401 is quick and easy, on the Mille its like they want you to keep the 5” on which I actually prefer anyways and will keep the 6” in the box.

    I'd keep the 5" BP on the Mille too, but it's good to know the difference in the machines.

    How about ergonomics, balance, smoothness and power compared to 3401?

    And is the Mille compatible with LC, B&S or Griots pads?
