Product Overview:

This RUPES SKORPIO III 5" & 6" Sander Combo Kit (RH359A+980.015N) is a package we've put together to allow for sanding with both 5" and 6" grip sanding discs.  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 5" (125mm) or 6" (150mm), without changing tools! 

This kit includes a #RH359A 6mm pneumatic vacuum-ready sander with 6" grip backup pad #981.321N plus a #980.015N 5" grip backup pad.

The SKORPIO RH359A features a wide 9mm (23/64") random orbit suited for aggressive sanding tasks when used with coarse grit abrasives. Also features a grip multi-hole backup pad for use with 6" grip (Velcro) sanding discs and vacuum port for use with external dust extraction systems.

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.

Pair with RUPES #9GAT2004/AS Anti-static Coaxial Air / Vacuum Hose for ultimate performance.

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

Features and Benefits:

RUPES Skorpio III 6 Inch Random Orbital Sander 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 lower vibration level, the new motor reduces internal friction for a higher power transfer ratio, simplified maintenance and longer tool life.
RUPES Skorpio III 6 Inch Random Orbital Sander Double Row 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.
RUPES Skorpio III 6 Inch Random Orbital Sander Anti Spinning System 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 housing and the backup pad.
RUPES Skorpio III 6 Inch Random Orbital Sander 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.
RUPES Skorpio III 6 Inch Random Orbital Sander Non-Slip Rubber Coating Ergonomic Design
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 for perfect fit into the tool body to eliminate pinch points, the internal balancing of the components double row bearings results in extremely low vibration and smoother operation.
RUPES Skorpio III 6 Inch Random Orbital Sander Interchangeable Backing Pads 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, 5" (125mm) or 6" (150mm), without changing tools!
RUPES Skorpio III 6 Inch Random Orbital Sander Vacuum Ready Dust Extraction Port Central Vacuum Models
SKORPIO III is available in three different models configured for external dust extraction systems, 3mm, 6mm and 9mm random orbits (RH353A, RH356A and RH359A).

The 3mm orbit is designed for finishing applications with 320 grit and finer abrasives; small orbit combined with high rpm and quality abrasives delivers a high quality finish that is perfectly prepared for paint and coatings The most popular SKORPIO III, the 6mm orbit features a 20% increase in time efficiency than 5mm random orbit sanders yet still results in the same high quality surface finish when used with medium grit abrasives The 9mm orbit tool is designed primarily for roughing and material removal applications when used with abrasives between 36 and 120 grit; this tool is aggressive but light in weight and ergonomically designed
