|The GC0388 is the latest model in the Highlead range to be introduced in to the UK for sewing of heavy materials.|
It features a top feed walking foot and bottom feed system that is suitable to sew medium & heavy weight materials such as leather, synthetics, vinyl, canvas, fibre-glass, plastics, webbing, upholstery, tarpaulin + heavier than normal standard fabrics.
The sewing arm is higher & 30% longer* than most standard machines: allowing additional sewing clearance for larger heavy items. (Height 150mm x Length 335mm)
The balanced sewing machine head benefits from automatic lubrication to reduce wear & tear, resulting in improved durability, lower noise levels, smoother running and minimal maintenance costs.
The fitting of a large hook & base as standard, reduces the number of bobbin changes and helps when using the thicker threads associated with heavier materials.
A large stitch length is available up to 8mm and a high foot lift of up to 16mm offers good clearance when stitching bulky/heavy items.
The top mounted adjusting dial allows for greater versatility, with the operator able to easily set the top feed walking foot to suit a particular application. This is useful for operators who often switch between materials, applications and thicknesses etc.
The Highlead GC0388 is a general purpose walking foot machine for use on medium to heavy weight materials and is suited to sewing, for example, car seats, general leather articles, belts, horse rug repairs, canvas, tents, awnings, handbags, outdoor wear, work-wear, camping goods etc.
