JUKI DDL-8700

High-Speed Single Needle Straight Lockstitch Industrial Sewing Machine Comes With Table, Legs, Servo Motor and LED Lamp

Are you a home sewer considering moving from a domestic sewing machine to something that can handle larger projects like quilts? Or, are you looking for a new sewing machine for your business?

Professional shops, design schools, and home sewers interested in a sewing machine that handles straight lockstitching for as much as a half-inch of fabric will appreciate the JUKI DDL-8700. Solidly built, this machine works quickly with consistent stitching, making anything you sew look professional and well-made.

Get Ready to Fall in Love with Your New DDL 8700


Despite being a high-powered industrial machine, the servo motor significantly reduces noise. With smooth, fast, and quiet stitching, you can easily sew for more extended periods and complete more significant projects.

Want to slow down that high-speed stitch? Simply adjust the servo motor for a slower speed whenever needed.

Moreover, this high-shank machine is compatible with a wide range of pressure feet, allowing you to expand its functionality effortlessly. By changing the presser foot, you can easily add features like ruffling, gathering, bias, elastic, and zipper installation. With over 200 presser feet available, many of which are high-shank (and high-shank adapters for snap-on feet), the possibilities are endless.

Once you are familiar with the 8700, you'll understand why countless JUKI buyers swear by their machines.


About the JUKI DDL-8700

The JUKI DDL-8700 can handle many types of lockstitch sewing for light to medium-weight fabrics.

With a maximum sewing speed of 5,000 spm and a maximum stitch length of 5mm, the DDL—8700 can handle all the straight lockstitching you need. It has a throat space of 10.5″ to handle a larger amount of fabric. The throat plate has marker grooves with different seam widths for easy reference. Need to sew something a little heavier? The throat plate and feed dogs can be exchanged for thicker ones.

Bobbins wind quickly with the built-in winder that sits on the right side of the head. Simply thread the bobbin, wind it a little, put it onto the spindle, push it in place, and touch the foot pedal for a fast refill.

The LED light means you’ll have an easier time seeing what you’re sewing.

This moderately priced industrial machine also has low vibration and high responsiveness that consistently produces the best seaming.

Safety Tips for the DDL-8700

Always turn off the machine before threading or doing anything that could cause injury, such as threading, oiling, changing a needle, or installing a bobbin for sewing.

The 8700 has a finger guard on the shaft to prevent injury and needle breakage. If you’re having trouble threading the machine, we suggest getting a pair of long tweezers to help.

Keep your hands, hair, and anything else that could become caught away from the machine's bobbin hook, needle area, and other moving parts.

Continuously operate the 8700 with a whole pan of oil. Check your machine’s oil pan regularly before and after use to ensure smooth operation and prevent damage.

And, of course, read the accompanying instruction manual, safety manual, and setup sheet with your machine.

U.S. WARRANTY:

90 Days labor on defects in materials and workmanship.

** Head Only option does not include the table, legs, Servo Motor, and LED Lamp. No assembly or residential charges necessary.

DISCLAIMER: DUE TO THE WEIGHT AND SHIPPING METHODS USED FOR INDUSTRIAL MACHINES THEY MAY EXPERIENCE MARRING AND SCRATCHES DURING SHIPPING. THIS WILL NOT AFFECT THE OPERATION OF THE MACHINE.

JUKI DDL-8700 FAQs

Q: What kind of needles do you use in the DDL-8700?

A: The needles with your JUKI are the Organ DBx1, available on our website. This machine uses size 16×257, size 8 through 20 or 16×97. The 8700 can also use standard needles, sizes 9 through 21, either universal or fabric-specific needles such as knit.

Q: Where does the machine oil go?

A: A pan directly underneath the machine supplies oil to the machine with a cotton wick. Lift the machine up and over to access the oil tank while on the table. You must keep the machine’s oil level consistently at the «high» mark, either by adding more oil or draining it and refilling it as needed. If the oil pump can’t get the oil into the machine, it can cause serious problems later.

Q: What kind of oil does this machine require?

A: You need a specific type to keep this machine running, like motor oil in your car. The DDL-8700 requires JUKI New Defrix Oil No.1, which is equivalent to ISO VG7.

Q: What size table can I get with this machine?

A: Our table is 22"w x 47"l, with legs. It includes a knee pedal and foot pedal, as well as a left-hand drawer for accessories.

Q: Does the DDL 8700 make buttonholes?

A: No. The 8700 only does straight stitching, with a horizontal bar on the right side for a reverse stitch.

THE ADVANTAGES OF A SERVO MOTOR:

  • 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 the Servo motor speed control, most users find the machine easier to use. Both beginning and seasoned sewers find this feature helpful when stitching projects that don't demand high-speed stitching.
