Highlead GC2268 compound feed, cylinder arm, heavy duty walking foot sewing machine (bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot feed) with large vertical axis hook & base.

Its powerful and steady feeding action enables you to sew multiple ply of medium to heavy weight material with a true and even stitch.

The GC2268 features a 71mm diameter heavy duty cylinder arm shape for use in production of 3 dimensional items. For example: general leather products, bags, satchels, luggage, filters, seats, straps, technical textiles, upholstery and wherever you need a cylinder arm shape.

The large vertical axis hook and bobbin offers twice the normal thread capacity, reducing bobbin change over and ideal for use with thicker threads. A wide range of sewing threads can be used up-to metric size 20* synthetic thread (or size 30* cotton thread) including 60, 40, 30 + V46, V69, V92 & V138* heavy duty threads etc.

The presser foot has a high lift of up-to 14mm, allowing for a large range of medium and heavy weight materials to be used.

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