They use up to 90% less power than clutch motors
They are 1/3 lighter than clutch motors
With a flick of the switch you can reverse motor rotation
No parts to wear out or adjust.
No matter how hard you press the foot pedal configured speed remains the same
Because of Servo motor speed control, most users find the machine is easier to use. Both beginning and seasoned sewers find this feature helpful when stitching projects that don't demand high-speed stitching.
