Strauch's customers requested a Strauch-quality carder that would produce those wonderful, outrageous "art batts" full of exciting fibers and textures. For those who want to make really wide and thick "Art-batts", the "Mad Batt'r double wide" model is available. This model has drums twice as wide as the regular Mad Batt'r and also comes with the Brush Attachment.

Thick batts weighing more than 3 ounces can easily be made.  The Strauch Model 302 series "Mad Batt'r" art drum carder as part of the Strauch regular product line.
This carder has deeper pins (1/2" long) and coarser carding cloth (72 teeth per sq. in.) on the large drum to accommodate all the fun add-ins that make these art batts say "spin me"!
The machine is built on the standard 200 series 4" tall solid ash-wood frame and, like all my drum carders, uses the unique "Slicker-Licker" cloth on the small drum. As with all of our 200 series carders, the Mad Batt'r has a 4:1 turning ratio.  The brush attachment makes it easier to control the type of art batt you are making. The large drum is 7" in diameter x 15" wide. The carder produces a batt approximately 15" wide x 22" long. The frame is 24" long, 18" wide, 6" high. The photo shows the single wide carder.

If it shows in stock it will ship from Maine. If it is a backorder it will be drop shipped from the factory usually in 6-10 business days.
  • Special tools included with each Mad Batt'r are:
  • The popular Knuckle-Saving-Batt-Pick, an invaluable tool for removing the batt without damage to the equipment or the user.
  • A Doffer/Cleaner Brush to thoroughly and easily clean any residual fibers from the carding drum.
  • A small cleaner/dabber brush for use on the licker in drum.
  • Table clamps to secure the carder to the work surface.
