BigFoot's powerful dance moves can be tough on shoes.

The Rupes® BigFoot series of 6" Random Orbital Polishers are impressive performers. They deliver a 21mm diameter orbit, and can generate massive momentum. Some models of the LHR21 top out at 4,500 orbits per minute! A stressful situation, for any backing plate.

After extended use, the factory installed backing plate can degrade.
An accidental dropping of the machine can bend or break the plate.

You'll be dead in the water unless you've got a replacement on hand.
