Extra Long Arm Industrial Zigzag Machine


Long arm zigzag sewing machine industrial

The Highlead GG0028-73L MK2 is an extra long arm Zigzag machine designed for use with medium & medium-heavy weight materials. 

Up-to 735mm clearance to the right of the needle, which is around 3 times the length of a standard arm industrial Zigzag machine.  The extra long arm clearance is useful when sewing non-standard and larger flowing items.

The purpose built extra long arm is factory cast for greater strength & stability, in comparison with old style cut and piece extended adapted arm models.

Its modern design features: a large Zigzag width of up-to 10mm and a stitch length of up-to 5mm combining together to give functional stitching on a wide range of applications.

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

It employs a parallel vertical needle bar motion for stronger striking power and the longer system 134-35 needles are used, including the medium weight size 100, right up-to the heavy weight size 140. 

A wide range of sewing threads can be used, with this model being able to sew with up-to size 20 synthetic thread (or size 30 cotton thread) + V46, V69, V92 & V138 heavy duty threads etc.
