Highlead GC20698-2-D-FL2

Twin Needle Long Arm Sewing Machine

Flatbed Heavy Duty Walking Foot with Automatic Thread Trimmer


Highlead GC20698-2D

The Highlead GC20698-2-D FL2 is a twin needle long arm flatbed walking foot sewing machine with automatic thread trimmer and electronic needle position control.

The long sewing machine arm allows up-to 635mm* clearance to the right of the needles, which is around 2.5 times bigger than a standard machine arm.

The solid long arm is factory cast and offers greater strength & stability when compared to a cut and piece extended arm.

It features a triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot top feed and is fitted with two large vertically mounted hooks & bases for use with medium to heavy weight materials.

The machine is equipped with an automatic thread trimmer which is mounted under the needle plate for quick & accurate cutting of thread at the end of a sewing cycle. This saves considerable time when compared with manual cutting of threads using scissors etc.  The thread trimmer is electronically controlled and uses electric impulse solenoids to move the cutting knives.

Covers removed showing: 
2x large vertical sewing hooks, the automatic thread trimming knives and the walking feet
(also shows the quick knuckle reverse button)

The position of the needle is controlled by an electronic needle position motor & controller.  This will automatically put the needles in an UP or DOWN position (selectable) at the end of a sewing cycle: reducing the need to use the manual hand wheel. This function is of particular use on long arm machines as the hand wheel is further away from the sewing area.

A safety clutch is fitted to help prevent damage to the hooks, bevel gears and other important parts, should the machine become jammed or over-loaded.

The Highlead GC20698-2-D FL2 is a feature packed machine and as well as compound feed (bottom feed, needle feed & walking foot) and automatic thread trimming, it comes as standard with programmable auto back-tack, auto reverse, knuckle quick reverse and built in stitch program module.

It is fitted with the latest quiet & energy efficient electronically controlled heavy duty servo motor, which only runs when you are actually sewing; If you pause or stop: the motor stops immediately and is almost silent.

The Highlead GC20698-2-D FL2 is a long arm, twin needle, needle feed, walking foot machine with UBT, for use on medium to heavy weight materials and is aimed at job applications where a standard arm sewing machine is not suitable.
