Tacsew?

Im in a trim class right now and Im using a Consew with a walking foot. Consew is a little beyond my meager pocket book so im looking at machines that are a little cheaper. I found a deal that gives you the machine (a Tacsew GC6-6), a table and a motor for $650.00.

My question is, is this machine strong enough for the heavy materials in cars and able to make good stiches?

Just been having a hard time finding reviews on it so opinions would be great

This machine is a copy of the Consew 206R, and will work fine for auto upholstery. It uses a larger "M" size bobbin, and has a horizontal hook as opposed to a vertical hook like on the Singer 111W and its clones. That just means that the bobbin and bobbin case come out of the machine from underneath as opposed to dropping the bobbin in from the top right of the needle.
