Highlead GC2698-1BN

 Cylinder Arm Sewing Machine

Narrow arm model with Walking Foot, Needle Feed and Large Hook


Highlead GC2698-1BN

The Highlead GC2698-1BN is a narrow cylinder arm, single needle lockstitch 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 alternating 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, small leather articles, straps, filters and other such items which can be difficult to handle and stitch on a standard flat bed machine.

The larger hook & base can accommodate up-to 60-70% additional thread when compared with a standard sized hook. Allowing longer stitching runs with fewer bobbin changes.

The Highlead is of a robust construction for industrial 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.

The Highlead GC2698-1BN is supplied as standard complete on a "off the arm unit stand" whereby the cylinder arm overhands the end of the unit stand allowing for easier access and improved versatility.
