Highlead GC20518-B

Twin Needle Lockstitch machine with needle feed & large hooks

Highlead GC20518 twin needle sewing machine


The Highlead GC20518-B produces two lines of lockstitch sewing and features self-lubricated large vertical-axis rotating hooks & bases; which offer approximately twice the thread capacity of standard hooks.

The machine has a synchronized feeding system, with the needle bar and bottom feed mechanisms moving in time: to combine into a more stable motion which helps prevent uneven material feeding & ply shifting etc., and results in a better and more precise stitched seam.

All standard features are fitted like: Dial adjustable stitch length, reverse stitch lever, large hand wheel etc. and with the GC20518-B being of a modern design, it also has an automatic lubrication system feeding all important moving parts.

Typical users of this Highlead model sew shirts, uniforms, overalls, jeans, work-wear, pants & other medium weight garments and fabrics.
