The Highlead GG0028-73FL is a cam change extra long arm Zigzag industrial sewing machine, designed for use with medium & medium-heavy weight materials (for heavy & extra heavy see model GG80018)

The solid cast and strong sewing machine long arm allows approximately 735mm clearance to the right of the needle, which is around 3 times the length of a standard arm Zigzag machine.  The extra long arm clearance is very useful when sewing larger than normal items.

Highlead GG0028-73FLP model is fitted with a back mounted puller feed unit to give more feeding/pulling power when stitching larger and longer flowing materials.

Incorporating an easy change cam system with a 3 step zigzag pattern cam fitted as standard.
Optional stitch cams are available, which when fitted, allow the machine to sew different patterns including standard zigzag, 2 step, 3 step, 4 step and straight stitch.

Its modern design features: a zigzag width of up-to 10mm* and a stitch length of up-to 5mm* combining together to produce a functional zigzag stitch pattern for use on a wide range of applications.

The hook containing the lower bobbin is twice the normal size; resulting in fewer bobbin changes and in combination with the vertical take up lever system, it is of particular use when using thicker than normal sewing threads.

It employs a parallel vertical needle bar motion for stronger striking power and a semi-automatic lubrication system to improve service life.
