The GC20698-1L40 is Highlead's super long arm industrial walking foot sewing machine.
This extra long sewing machine allows up to 40" (1020mm*) clearance to the right of the needle, which is approximately 4 times the clearance of a standard arm machine.
It features a triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle feed +walking foot top feed and is fitted with a large vertical axis hook & base for use with medium to heavy weight materials.
The machine is equipped with electronic needle position which automatically puts the needles in an UP or DOWN position (selectable) at the end of a sewing cycle; considerably reducing the need to use the manual hand wheel. The function is of particular use on this extra long arm model as the hand wheel is 4 time further away from the stitching area, when compared to a standard model.
The included full size heavy duty servo motor is a high torque version with an electronic control system licensed by Mitsubishi. It is energy efficient and rotates only when you are actually sewing; if you pause or stop the motor stops immediately.
A knuckle operated reverse device, which is positioned just above the foot, allows the operator to reverse stitch without having to move their hands from the sewing area.
