This model is the giant in the Highlead range of compound feed flatbed heavy-duty machines (bottom feed, needle feed and walking foot feed).

Its powerful and steady feeding action enables you to sew multiple ply of heavy weight material with a nice and even stitch.

A stitch length of up-to 15mm is possible (which in sewing machine terms, is massive) and the machine has a reverse stitch lever as standard.

The special extra large shuttle hook and bobbin capacity offers high efficiency in sewing products using extra thick thread.

The bobbin winder is mounted on top of the sewing machine head for easy use and quick change over.

The presser foot has an extra high lift and can go up to 20mm, allowing for a large range of extra heavy weight material or bulky items to be used.

The walking foot action is fully driven and combines with the bottom feed and needle bar feed to produce a positive feeding motion for extra heavy use.


The head also has a larger internal working area of 400mm to the right of needle.

The Highlead GA0688-1 is an extra heavy-duty machine for use on for example:

Harnesses, Saddlery materials, Sails, Carpets, think canvas & leather, bags, parachutes, heavy webbing, safety belts, straps, bulky quilting & beds etc. + many other extra heavy weight or bulky jobs
