Rupes RH353 SKORPIO III: PNEUMATIC SANDER 6mm Orbit
Available as non-vacuum (RH353), the 3mm Skorpio III pneumatic dual-action palm sander reduces the time typically needed to sand a surface by up to 50% making it is RUPES’ fastest cutting dual-action palm sander. All Skorpio III sanders feature engineered motors designed to maximize torque, even with low or inconsistent airflow.
The Skorpio III is what every random orbital sander operator needs-an extremely quiet tool that has tremendous power and low vibration!
The newly designed pneumatic Skorpio III is the quietest random orbital sander in its class. Further, it comes in a choice of orbit sizes to fit your particular application.
Ø 3mm ORBIT
The 3mm orbit is designed for finishing applications that use grade P320 and higher abrasives. The small orbit, combined with the high rpm and proper abrasives, delivers a high quality finish that is perfectly prepared for paints and other coatings. Use the 3mm Skorpio III to control material removal rates, for edge work, or for fine sanding.
The new high performance motor is designed to provide the best power to weight ratio with a lower air consumption. Designed to minimize tool noise and low vibration level, the new motor reduces internal friction for a higher power transfer ratio, simplified maintenance and longer tool life.
NEW ERGONOMIC LEVER WITH RUBBER INSERT
The new throttle lever design, exclusive to RUPES, slides the throttle lever fulcrum forward when the lever itself is depressed. This action lifts the back end of the throttle lever and places it in a neutral position creating a stable and ergonomic support for the operator’s hand. Improved handling and reduced vibration are results of the new design.
INTERCHANGEABLE BACKING PAD
The internal components of the Skorpio III are so well balanced that operators can actually change the size of the backing pad without compromising the low vibration level of the tool. It is now possible to choose the backing pad diameter that you need Ø 125 mm or Ø 150 mm, without changing tools!
