    Whilst I was idly trawling the net as you do. I noticed this machine seems to be well thought of over the pond. However I wondered if anyone else on here has or had one and could comment please.

    It is expensive and I wondered if it fell between two camps being too dear for the a standard DA but not having a big enough throw to justify the additional cost - although I assume it is more pleasant to use than a DAS6 equivalent ???

    Any thoughts please

    Looks a great machine although it will be slightly more cumbersome to use than it's bigger brother LHR 15 due it's shorter stockier design £255 is the best l have seen it at...av got a standard 10% discount with ultimate finish sooo an extra £25 bangers off it lol.....worth thee investment....

    Thanks for that - it's interesting you comment it will be slightly more cumbersome. One review I saw suggested the shape made it more manoeuvrable for areas like the bottom on the door panels.

    Btw who are AV please

    It has the same design as my Flex mini polisher....much shorter and thicker than it's bigger brother ....and personally it's more difficult to use a shorter bodied machine on vertical panels as your arms/shoulders are closer together

    Thanks for that always good to have some real world input - may have to research the 15mm throw version but don't think I could stretch to the MK3 version

    MK2 is a great machine as are all Rupes machines....it's just the larger machines are better ergonomically designed

    Presumably much better than the DAS6 Pro Plus for smoothness and lack of vibration ?

    Internally rupes and Flex are better engineered by far,that's why they're more expensive...far smoother and quieter to use than any Chinese replica fact

    Yes they are way better engineered in every way hence they're used by detailers...you'll get better results quicker with either a Rupes/Flex machine polishing machine
