RUPES Pneumatic 'Skorpio III' 150mm Random Orbital Palm Sander

Experience the Excellence

The Skorpio III is what every random orbital sander operator needs, an extremely quiet tool that has tremendous power and low vibration.

The newly designed pneumatic Skorpio III is the quietest random orbital sander in its class. Further, it comes in a choice of orbit sizes to fit your particular application.

The body is coated with an anti-slip rubber for better handling, the throttle lever is designed to support the operator’s wrist during operation and actually fits perfectly into the tool body to eliminate “pinch points”, the internal balancing of the components results in extremely low vibration and the double row bearings insure greater life and smoother operation.

Made in Italy, the latest generation of air Palm sanders are quiet, powerful, efficient, smooth and affordable tools that set the standard for all to follow.

9mm Orbit: Roughing and Material Removal:

Innovation RUPES-Skorpio-9mm-orbit The 9mm orbit tool is designed primarily for roughing and material removal applications. The tool is aggressive, but light in weight and ergonomically designed. The suggested range of abrasives is P60 to P120.

Other orbit versions available.
Equipped with a connection to a RUPES external dust extraction system.

 The Skorpio III features:

Innovation RUPES-Skorpio-Heavy-Duty-Motor New Heavy Duty Motor
The new high performance motor built in sintered steel is designed to provide the best power to weight ratio with a lower air consumption. Designed to minimize tool noise and to low vibration level, the new motor reduces internal friction for a higher power transfer ratio, simplified maintenance and longer tool life.
Innovation RUPES-Skorpio-Ball-Bearings Double Row Ball Bearings
A new double-row ball bearing system, designed specifically by the RUPES Research and Development team, results in longer bearing life, greater motor stability and lower vibration levels.

Innovation RUPES-Skorpio-Anti-Spinning Anti Spinning System
The presence of the rubber shroud prevents the tool from operating in free rotation mode. This eliminates the risk of damage to the work surface from a true rotary motion. Further, the shroud allows for more efficient dust extraction by sealing the area between the tool’s housing and the backing pad. (Not available on “NO VACUUM” models).
Innovation RUPES-Skorpio-Well-Balanced Extremely Well Balanced
RUPES Research and Development team dedicated significant time and effort to create a tool whose internal components are perfectly balanced. The result is a tool that is very low in vibration, and ideal for high time-exposure operations.
Skorpio-2-Backing-Pad Interchangeable Backing Pad
The internal components of the Skorpio  III are so well balanced that operators can actually change the size of the backing pad without compromising the low vibration level of the tool. It is now possible to choose the backing pad diameter that you need Ø125mm or Ø150mm, without changing tools!
Innovation RUPES-Skorpio-Central-Vac-Model Central Vacuum Models
Wyatt Machine Tools sell models RH353A, RH356A and RH359A configured for external dust extraction systems.

NEW Multi-hole Backing Pads
The multihole pattern combined to the 10 channels obtained on the side of the backing pad provides an impressive air flow that increases the dust extraction during the sanding on both horizontal and vertical surfaces. This guarantees a better cleaning of the working area and therefore a better working conditions. Two of the side channels are connected directly to the central hole with the function to dissipate the heat during the backing pad rotation. This new model of backing pad has been designed to obtain a low center of gravity which ensures a better control and precision during all phases of the sanding process.
