LC Power Tools UDOS 51E Launched at SEMA Show 2019
LC Power Tools introduces the UDOSⓇ 51E, the world’s first five-in-one professional polisher, offering five functions with one tool: rotary, sanding, 12, 15, and 21 mm random orbit polishing. The heavy-duty polisher is designed by LC Power Tools to replace five different tools detailers use.
UDOS 51E is the first in a new line of professional power tools from LC Power Tools. Its worldwide patented user-friendly design allows for fast adjustment from a sander to a rotary tool to a random orbit/DA polisher with three throws to get more work done with just one tool. UDOS stands for User- Defined-Orbital-Stroke. The model number, 51E reinforces the five-in-one function of the tool and the “E” stands for electric.
“As a pioneering manufacturer in the detailing industry, we’ve always been committed to developing unique products to meet the evolving needs of professional detailers,” explains Jay Schneider, founder/president of LC Power Tools. “UDOS 51E was designed by our product development team to solve a problem that detailers face every day – switching tools to accomplish all the stages of cutting, sanding, correcting and polishing paint. With the all-new UDOS 51E, detailers can spend less switching between various tools, saving time and frustration and ultimately, getting more work done.”
Five in One Design: More Tool, Fewer Tools.
UDOS 51E has five settings on the front collar: R-rotary, S-sanding, P1-12mm, P2-15mm, P3-21mm. The recommended applications for the five settings are:
R = Rotary for Heavy Cutting
S = Sanding
P1=12 mm random orbit for Polishing and Finishing
P2: 15 mm random orbit for Light Cutting
P3 = 21 mm random orbit for Cutting
Switching between five tool functions of the heavy duty tool is easily accomplished by pushing down on the front collar and rotating it to the selected mode. With a 1200 Watt, 10 amp motor, UDOS 51E is the most powerful electric detailing tool, able to tackle any detailing challenge. UDOS 51E allows professionals to work faster, adjusting the tool to the job at hand, rather than reaching for another tool.
“The UDOS 51E is unlike any other tool on the market, allowing you to quickly finish the job from start to finish,” adds Robert Eichelberg, global sales director for LC Power Tools. “With one tool to carry, use and maintain, this professional polisher will save detailers both time and money.”
Highlights of UDOS 51E
Unique Backing Plate
An all new engineered five inch UDOS-specific backing plate dramatically increases airflow, using a patent-pending LC Power Tools design. The unique backing plate maximizes tool performance while the increased air flow keeps the pad and tool cooler. The backing plate is well-marked to assist in adjusting the five-in-one stroke, allowing the user to easily see if the pad is rotating properly based on the job.
Engineered from the ground up to meet the needs of professional detailers, UDOS 51E utilizes a unique dynamic balance system to provide smooth operation throughout the adjustment range. UDOS 51E is well balanced in each of the five tool settings.
UDOS 51E is the only polisher on the market to offer three different handle sizes for user comfort. While the tool will ship with a standard medium handle, two additional handle sizes will be available as accessories for detailers with either smaller or larger hands, providing a customized user experience.
Non-marring rubber bumpers keep the tool stable when placed on work surface and the overmolded grip on the top of the tool dampens vibration and provides a more secure grip surface. The head of the tool includes built-in heat dissipation to keep users’ hands cool and the speed control is placed near the rear handle for easy adjustability during use.
UDO Pads by LC Power Tools
A new line of three UDO pads created by LC Power Tools can be used with all five functions of the UDOS 51E. The pads will be launched in January, 2020.
Price and Availability
Designed and built in the U.S. with parts sourced globally and backed by the respected team at Lake Country Manufacturing, the groundbreaking UDOS 51E reinforces the company’s focus on innovation for professionals made by professionals. The UDOS 51E will begin shipping in the first quarter of 2020, and the anticipated MSRP is $699.
