Highlead GC20618-1CX

Heavy Duty Walking Foot Sewing Machine

Upgraded model adding thicker thread stitching capability

£1900 +VAT

Highlead GC20618-1CX

The GC20618-1CX is an upgraded model, derived from the time served Highlead GC20618 series, adding the ability to stitch with thread sizes up-to metric size 10.

Its thick thread handling capability is useful for decorative stand-out stitching and stitching with extra mechanical strength. Double the maximum usable thread thickness when compared with other models in its class (i.e. GC20618-1)

Conventionally thicker thread sizes, for example 10 & 12, would be used to stitch extra heavy items that required an expensive, and often difficult to use, extra heavy model.  The Highlead GC20618-1CX, in comparison, now allows the use of these thicker threads in a sewing machine manufactured to stitch medium-heavy weight materials. 

It features a heavy duty triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot top feed. These three different feeding components combine together to give a positive feed action which is well-matched with heavy or bulky material & fabrics. 

It is fitted with the more advanced large vertical axis hook assembly & drive transmission: which usually perform better than the standard & cheaper horizontal axis hook type set-up.

The machine is smooth running, durable, versatile and its robust construction includes: needle roller bearings for the arm & hook shaft etc., cog driven belt assemblies and more importantly an automatic oil lubrication system is fitted, which reduces wear & tear considerably.

A stitch length of up-to 10mm is available for functional and decorative stitching, plus the presser foot has a high clearance of up-to 16mm.

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

The Highlead GC20618-1CX is a well designed and robust special purpose needle feed, walking foot sewing machine for sewing with thicker threads on medium to heavy weight materials such as:

leather, vinyl, coated fabrics, canvas, webbing and upholstery materials etc.

It is suited to sewing, for example, car seats, general upholstery and leather articles, belts, canvas, tents, awnings, handbags, outdoor wear, straps & camping goods etc.
