Go to machine for leather serging, overlock & hemming?

So the Juki DNU-1541 seems to be the goto machine for entry level industrial machines to do straight upholstery stitching. The compound feed, walking foot & ability to have a welt\piping attachment is important to me.

However, I'm interested in cross stitch designs, overlock & zig zag designs.
As far as I'm aware, these things are not possible with the straight sewing Juki.

I'm looking for a machine choice that will have a good amount of aftermarket and oem support for it. The 1541 has everything you could want or need for customization or service for a straight line sew, but I've searched very heavily and its hard to find a serious goto for a industrial 5 thread serger\overlock\hem machine. And if I'm seeing this right I STILL need a 3rd machine for zig zags?

Any help would be appreciated.

Are there machines that do all this? Because the price for all 3 types seems to be approaching near $6000 if I'm looking at this right.
