Highlead GC0318-1

Lockstitch sewing machine with Top & Bottom Feed & Large hook

(Bottom feed & walking foot top feed)

Highlead GC0318-1
The Highlead GC0318-1 is a flat-bed style industrial sewing machine for use on medium & medium-heavy weight materials.

It features a top feed walking foot and bottom feed system, with an alternating foot lift mechanism that is suitable to sew medium & medium-heavy weight materials such as leather, synthetics, canvas, plastics, PVC, webbing, tarpaulin + heavier than normal standard fabrics like upholstery or heavy weight curtains etc.

The balanced sewing machine head benefits from automatic lubrication to reduce wear & tear, resulting in improved durability, lower noise levels, smoother running and minimal maintenance costs.  

The fitting of a large hook & base as standard, reduces the number of bobbin changes and helps when using the thicker threads associated with heavier than normal materials. A large stitch length is available up to 8mm.

The heavy duty top walking foot mechanism combined with standard bottom feed; produces a positive feed action and allows true even stitching.
Thick sewing needles are used from size 110 up-to the extra thick size 180.

As well as a standard bottom feed the Highlead GC0318-1 model features a powerful top foot feed assembly
