This 62mm (2-7/16") diameter backing plate fits the Rupes LHR75 (pneumatic) and LHR75e (electric) duo of BigFoot Random Orbital Polishers. Its Velcro is sized perfectly for use with the 62/70mm series of Rupes Foam Buffing Pads. It's a good idea to keep at least one spare backing plate on hand, as they are VERY difficult to locate in a pinch.

 01-23-2017 Note:  This product has been discontinued, but we have a replacement, which is a TRIMMED down version of the Rupes 990.007Performance of the trimmed plate is on par with the discontinued plate. Therefore, should you choose to order this item, the trimmed 990.007 will be sent in its place.

Occasionally, BigFoot® needs a new shoe.

The Rupes LHR75 BigFoot 3" Air-Powered Mini Random Orbital Polisher is one wicked machine.  Its massive 15mm ø orbit and 11,000 RPM top-speed can stress the backing plate's Velcro® hooks, causing them to break.

Technique, overall use, and the type of work being accomplished can also impact the life of the plate. Should you accidentally drop the machine (and the plate is impacted in the fall), its thin metal mounting pad can bend, causing the plate to wobble something fierce.

Eventually, in one way or another... the backing plate will need to be replaced.

The Rupes 990.201 is designed for use with Rupes 62/70mm series of Foam Buffing Pads. It's a good idea to keep at least one spare on hand if you own an LHR75, as they are not all that easy to locate in a pinch.

Where have YOU been all my life?!

If there's one thing I despise, it's an inferior backing plate.
I suppose this is why I fell head over heels for the Rupes 9P08.060!

Its stellar build quality is reminiscent of the Mirka 102GG 3" Backing Plate, but is shorter in height.  Molded polymer construction means that the yellow hub, white cushioning, and black Velcro® face are molded together (not glued), so this backing plate should last and last.  The mounting stud is 5/16"-24, so this little beauty will fit all sorts of machines.

The face of the plate is not stiff nor soft.  When used on curved surfaces, its edge conforms rather easily, but this plate would surely be a good basis for sanding things level.  The hook material is short, grabby, and long lasting.  Should the side of the plate happen to contact a delicate object, you'll be relieved to know that it is soft to the touch.  An excellent choice for use with sanding discs and buffing pads alike.

This is great addition to your backing plate arsenal.  A spacer is not included with this plate, so you'll need to install some sort of washer (an 8mm washer fits perfectly).  The washer will ensure that the rivets on top of the plate will not contact the counterbalance assembly on certain random orbital machines.

A chunky bruiser of a plate. Now an all-time favorite!

This backing plate is built like a tank. Its height comes in handy at times, while the added weight allows it to work well with machines designed for 5" and 6" backing plates.

Molded polymer construction means that the black hub, yellow foam center, and white face are molded together, not glued. Consequently, durability is tip-top.

The face of the plate is stiff, yet when used on curved surfaces its edge conforms to some degree.  The hook material is short, grabby, and long lasting.  Should the side of the plate happen to contact a delicate object, you'll be relieved to know that it is soft to the touch.

This is great addition to your backing plate arsenal.

Hook face, compatible with all hook & loop systems.

Mirka's backing plates are manufactured using a top quality molded polymer construction.

This means that the black hub, yellow foam center, and white face are molded together- not glued.

Each plate is balanced to eliminate vibration, so you can work comfortably.

The medium density polyurethane foam is somewhat firm, but will give a small degree due to its flared edge.

This backing plate is the same diameter as the ever-popular DMC3 / DMF3 Meguiar's 3" DA Microfiber Discs. By delivering full support to the outer edge, it can increase cutting power immensely (best guess, 30%), yet deliver a more refined finish than the standard undersized Meguiar's recommended backing plate S3BP.
