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 990.007 is a direct repacement for the factory installed unit.  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.
