In my polishing process, the LHR15 Mark III is my go-to tool. The 5" size is the sweet spot between being large enough to do all the main panels, and small enough to get into the detail areas a little better. The LHR21 may have a larger throw and be able to get more work done, but with how complex and undulating vehicle panels are these days, there aren't really many times you can break out the LHR21 if you're trying to really get your paint dialed in. 95 times out of 100 I'm reaching for the LHR15 and it is what I start every correction with.
Here's what your progression should be for what to purchase in what order: LHR15 > LHR75E > Nano Long Neck. From there you can get into the other machines like the LHR21, Mille, pneumatic tools, etc.
If you need everything else for polishing as well, consider just getting the LHR15 as part of the main Polishing Package I have in the store. This comes with everything you need to get started with polishing, once your paint has been prepped. Speaking of prep, don't forget to properly decontaminate your paint before you grab your polisher: Decontamination Package.
IMPROVED ERGONOMICS The rubberized front grip of the Mark III offers exceptional comfort for the operator while providing a non-slip surface for control. The improved rear handle also integrates rubberized surfaces for improved feel. Two strategically placed, non-marking, tool rests provide stability when the tool is not in use as well as additional protection against unintended impact. The continued refinement of the BigFoot random orbital platform in Mark III reinforce its best in class reputation, making the best even better.
ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROL DIAL The new electronic speed control dial allows for easy adjustment of the top speed of the polisher without requiring the operator to move his hands. The larger dial is easily adjusted with a move of the thumb. High visibility numbers and a more positive feedback from the movement of the dial make speed changes feel more deliberate, allowing operators to select the ideal speed for the task without any interruption to the polishing process.
PROGRESSIVE TRIGGER Adding an additional layer of control is the new progressive trigger. Acting as a throttle to control speeds within the dial range, the progressive trigger allows the operator to make subtle adjustments for precise control without interruption of the process or need to reposition the grip to access the speed dial.
DESIGN Attention to detail is something more than just attractive design. Every detail, such as the rubber support positioned on the body of the machine to keep it stable during the non-working stages, is the result of meticulous research aimed at achieving maximum operator comfort.
