Strauch Finest Standard Drum Carder - Motorized Strauch Finest Standard Drum Carder - Motorized

Strauch says "By popular demand, we have now developed a motorized series of Finest drum carders. This includes both the singlewide and doublewide machines. In addition, both existing Strauch hand crank chain drive Finest models can be upgraded to the motorized version.

Being an engineer, I 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 "infinitely variable speed" feature (not just two or three speed settings) is a God-send when working with fine fibers like alpaca, merino and cashmere.

Our carders use very high quality, durable, electronically controlled motors that are made in the USA! All these machines have been extensively beta tested by some "heavy duty" fiber artists and they all have raved about the design, workmanship and durability.

The dimensions of these carders are the same as their manual counterparts."


If in stock it will ship from Maine, otherwise it will be drop shipped from the factory usually in 3-10 business days.
