Sailrite’s Ultrafeed® Sewing Machines have the perfect combination of being a portable, convenient sewing machine but with the power of an industrial machine. Using their walking foot to sew fabrics light to heavy, these heavy duty machines are very popular with canvas workers. With a foot lift of an extra 3/8” these machines are capable of sewing even thick marine assemblies making them the perfect on-board machine for sailmakers and boaters. As for home sewers, they will also find the tough heavy-duty machine is great when more power is needed. Every Ultrafeed is built with patented parts specific to Sailrite to make it the best portable heavy duty sewing machine available on the market today.
With two different models to choose from each machine is designed to fit different sewing capabilities and budgets. The Blue LSZ-1 is a straight and zig-zag stitch machine while the LS-1 can only sew straight stitch. This does not mean it is any less of a powerful machine, using the same robust metal parts and patented technology both machines are capable of sewing through heavy materials such as sailcloth, denim, heavy canvas and upholstery fabric. They can even sew through up to 10 layers of heavy canvas or 8 layers of Dacron Sailcloth.
There are different packages to suit different budgets and needs. The LS-1 and LSZ-1 are both sold as PLUS packages from us. Then the LSZ-1 can also be bought as a PREMIUM package, coming with all our most popular extras including the Monster II Balance Wheel, EZ Set Stitch Length Plate, electronic variable speed control and much more. All machines come with two-year warranty, sewing machine oil, bobbins, needles, a toolkit, guide book and DVD as standard.
