Highlead GC2698-1B

Synchronized Binding Sewing Machine

Cylinder Arm, Needle Feed, Walking Foot & Large Hook

Highlead GC2698-1B binding sewing machine
Highlead GC2698-1B synchronized binding narrow cylinder arm industrial sewing machine with walking foot and enlarged 1.6x hook & base.

It features: a heavy duty triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle bar feed and walking foot top feed, which combine together to produce high quality displacement-free seams.

The versatile narrow cylinder free-arm design guarantees improved material handling on three-dimensional items like: bags, gloves, shoes, straps, filters and other such items which may be difficult to stitch on a standard flat bed machine.

The Highlead is of a robust construction for industrial heavy duty use and its features also include a front mounted bobbin winder for easy use and quick change over, plus a reverse lever with combined stitch length adjuster.

This binder model features a quad feeding set-up, with the bottom feeder, needle feeder, walking foot top feeder and bottom plate binder attachment, all synchronized in one smooth motion for professional binding applications.

The Highlead GC2698-1B is supplied as standard with an "off the arm unit stand" which results in the cylinder arm overhanding the end of the unit stand allowing for easier all-around access and improved versatility.
