Industrial walking foot sewing machine

Hi Board.

I was looking for used industrial walking foot sewing machine and I stumble in this board.

I am looking for something heavyduty enough to sew thick pet beds and crate pads. I was told Pfaff or Juki older moder is good one to get.

Do you have any experience on either of brand sewing machine.

Thank you.

In the world of industrial sewing machines, Adler is the Rolls Royce, Pfaff is the Cadillac, Juki is the Oldsmobile (or Buick,I guess now days), Singer and Consew are the Chevrolets, and the knockoffs of all of these, like Tacsew are the Yugos. Any industrial sewing machine, whether it is a Rolls Royce or a Yugo will do what you want it to do. My 35 year old Consew 226 will sew through 1/4" plywood with no problem. Just don't buy a home sewing machine if you intend to sew for any length of time. A home sewing machine will work for you until you get your feet on the ground, like for a couple months, but not much longer. You might want to check into Sailrite sewing machines.
Good luck with your business.

Hi DanTwolakes.

Thank you for your reply. I found Adler walking foot industrial sewing machine, and like to know what do you think. He wants $1000.

Adler 267 walking foot industrial sewing machine.With new servo motor 110 volt. Made in Germany to sew upholstery, leather, canvas, vynal, webbing, plastic and any other hard to feed or thick uneven material as well as regular cloth. The quality and dependability of the 267 Adler stands out above the rest.

Make: Adler

Model: 267-373

Condition: like new

In this case, the hyperbole about the Adler is correct. Any industrial sewing machine, and a lot of home sewing machines, will sew what you want to sew with no problem. An Adler 267 with a servo motor is easily worth a thousand dollars.

My Consew 226R-1 that is 35 to 40 years old is easily worth $900 checked over by a professional sewing machine mechanic and put in good working condition. If the one you want to buy has not been checked over, by all means, have it done as soon as you buy it.

Hi DanTwoLakes.

That's good to hear because he said it's good price for the machine, and he is industrial sewing machine repair man. He also have Mitsubishi LU2-400 walking foot industrial sewing machine for $700, but I wanted something will hold value like Rollsroyce, Lol.

The guy selling those two machines you are referring to is where my Consew 255RB-3 came from. He is a very good industrial machine mechanic and I know he sells good, used machines. I eyeballed that Adler for a while. I ended up getting a long arm Adler 267 and am keeping my Consew.

This guy was willing to take $500 for this Adler 467 . This is a VERY good deal on an Adler if you're willing to drive to him to pick it up.

Hi slodat.

What is different between 467 and 267 other than they are both walking foot. Wenatch is about 3 to 4 hours from me so it's not too bad of drive. Where do you live? I'm in Longview.

I have emailed back and forth with the seller about that machine because I was interested in it for a little while. I recommend you doing the same. It is a walking foot machine.

Slodat.

I just send him some e-mail since it is late to call. I asked him what comes with sewing machine and if firm on price. I didn't said I was told $500. I still like to know what is different between 267 and 467.
