The left handlebar allows you to control the thread trimming and the needle up and down positioning. The front handlebars are adjustable, so you can move them wherever is most suitable for your daily use. Up and down or even to the side, your handlebars can be adjusted for comfort.
The laser light at needle position allows for your sight to follow the stitching in patterns and pantographs, so you are
never again at a loss when working. The hand wheel on the right side of the machine offers you an ergonomic design so as to help you avoid getting a cramped hand and strained shoulder since it is easy to reach. The built in bobbin winder works while you are working, so you are never left with an empty bobbin while working.This machine is considered a high capacity, as it 18 inches in length and 10 inches in height for a work space. The stitch regulator is built in, and lets you create perfect and accurately placed stitching. Once you choose your stitch, the on board computer works with the programming and encoders to keep that stitch true regardless of other factors.The dry head system means every once in a while you may need to oil the hook, but the rest of the machine is dealt with easily. The four stitch modes include manual, baste, precise and cruise.Lastly, the direct drive motor keeps your work smooth with very little noise and practically no vibration at all.
From looking at reviews and manufacturer specifications for this model, it appears that no less than a 15 foot by 8 foot space is required for correct use of this machine. The standard machine comes with a ten foot stand and the option is available for a two foot extension, and height is fully adjustable.
