Time and again we are asked to recommend a sewing machine that is portable, affordable, easy to use and powerful enough to sew through several layers of canvas or sail cloth. We have finally found that machine!

The Mini Brute Long Arm portable industrial machines are equipped with a walking foot. The material is moved through the machine by the synchronized walking feet above and the feed dog below, feeding the material in either forward or reverse. The extra wide alternating feet press the material tightly together permitting even, professional quality stitches. Never skip a stitch when going from thick to thin.

Powered by a 110 AC, 1.5 amp motor, the machines have a geared belt and pulley drive for positive traction and mega power. No more slipping belts when sewing heavy fabrics.

In additional to the impressive power, I was delighted to find how easy this machine is to use and control. Let off the foot control, and the machine stops. An inexperience sewer can be up and running in minutes with a Mini Brute Long Arm machine.

The instruction book is complete with simple instructions for perfect stitches. It also includes a parts list and trouble shooting section. And included in the accessories are screw drivers, allen wrenches and spare belts. Because of the machines heavy construction, any problems are likely minor.

This machine has been around for over 25 years. It is manufactured in China and made into a "long arm" machine by expanding the work area by 2". It was specifically designed for sewing upholstery and leather, and the extra under arm space makes this machine perfect for sewing sails and canvas.
