Ricoma’s KS-8700B flat-bed lockstitch sewing machine is ideal for sewing together light to medium garments like denim, cloth, knitted materials, and much more. Its top speed of 5,500 stitches per minute will help you finish projects quickly and faster than your competitors. Along with high speeds, the KS-8700B has a rotary hook, an advanced noise decreasing device, and an energy-efficient direct-drive servo motor that allows for a smoother and quieter operation with less vibration. The motor is also housed inside the sewing machine, so you don’t have to manually install a motor and belt underneath the table. When it comes to sewing, the KS-8700B has an adjustable stitch length between 1mm to 5mm so you can switch between shorter and stronger seams to longer and looser seams, depending on the project and material. Its presser foot can lift from 5 to 13mm to sew thicker materials from objects like tents and bags. And its drop-feed mechanism and four rows of feed dogs allow you to feed fabric easily and evenly under the needle to control the stitch’s direction and length. Lastly, the KS-8700B’s automatic oiling system ensures the machine is always lubricated, and that maintenance is mess-free.
