By popular demand, Strauch has now developed a motorized series of chain drive drum carders. Available motorized is the "405" "Finest" 8" drum carder.
Note: the Petite cannot be motorized because it is a light duty machine and not constructed to withstand the stresses imparted by the motor.
Being an engineer, Otto Strauch designed these machines to be truly unique in the marketplace and built with the same high standards as the hand crank models.
They are "high tech" drum carders having both infinitely variable speed AND reversibility features. The "truly variable speed" feature (not just two or three speed settings) is a very important feature when working with fine and super-fine fibers like alpaca, merino and cashmere.
Strauch Motorized carders use very high quality, durable, electronically controlled motors that are made in the USA!. All these machines have been extensively tested by some "heavy duty" fiber artists and they all have raved about the design, workmanship and durability.
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
Each Motorized Drum Carder comes with:
As with any electronic device, it is highly recommended that you plug you carder into a surge protector. Both the motor and controller are expensive and should be protected.
