with Long Arm & Operator Aids
|This Highlead GA2688-1-NPAA is the next model up from the standard GA2688-1 and is a giant in the Highlead range of walking foot cylinder arm heavy duty sewing machines.
Its powerful and steady triple feeding action (by way of bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot top feed) enables you to sew multiple ply of heavy weight material with a true and even stitch formation.
The NPAA specification model features a high torque full sized 1HP electronic needle positioning motor, air assisted reverse device, air operated automatic foot lifter, Knuckle quick reverse system and electronic stitch count box with slow speed inching control. These extra operator aids combine to offer a much more controllable and less fatiguing extra heavy duty sewing machine.

The bobbin winder is mounted on top of the sewing machine head for easy use and quick change over.
|The heavy duty presser foot assembly has an extra high lift of up to 20mm, allowing for a large range of extra heavy weight material to be used. The included air operated auto foot lifter device allows easy loading & unloading operations.
The walking foot action is fully driven and combines with the bottom feed and needle bar feed to produce a positive feeding motion for extra heavy use.
