Highlead GC20638

Twin Needle Flatbed Heavy Duty Sewing Machine with Split Needle bar

(with Bottom feed, needle feed & walking foot top feed)

The GC20638 is the twin needle version of Highlead's latest model of heavy duty compound feed lockstitch machine which features a very useful selectable split needle bar.
The special split needle bar is particularly useful when sewing corners or tight angular stitching and allows the operator, at the flick of a lever, to disengage one of the needle bars; so the machine can sew with one needle. You can select to disengage or re-engage the left or right needle depending on the type of corner you are doing.   


The machine is smooth running, durable, versatile and its robust construction includes: needle roller bearings for the arm & hook shaft etc., cog driven belt assemblies and more importantly an auto oil lubrication system is fitted, which reduces wear & tear considerably.

As well as the split needle bar design, It features a heavy duty triple feeding action by way of: bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot top feed and is fitted with two large vertically mounted hook & bases for use with medium to heavy weight materials.

A safety clutch is fitted to help prevent damage to the hooks, bevel gears and other important parts, should the machine become jammed or over-loaded.

The GC20638 is a twin needle, needle feed, walking foot machine with split needle bar for use on medium to heavy weight materials and is suited to sewing for example:
