SMA K6 Heavy-Duty Walking Foot Industrial Sewing Machine for Horse Rug Machinery

SMA-K6-02SMA K6 is based on the popular Singer 132 K6 Industrial Sewing Machine that we all know has been serving the industry for the past 50 years and is our NO.1 selling and most user-friendly Industrial Sewing Machine for the Equine Industry. If you are looking to repair anything from light mesh rugs through to 10mm leather materials such as bridles, stirrups and all types of horse rugs and their straps, then this is the machine for you.

The SMA K6 is easy to use, can be operated by beginner sewers and comes with an easy to follow instruction manual backed by technical phone support. Here at Sewing Machines Australia (SMA) we understand that the Equine Industry can be "messy" and that your horse rugs and equipment will not always be in pristine condition for repair. This machine will handle anything you throw at it, there is no need to wash and clean your gear before you repair it. The K6 has no oil bath which eliminates the dirt from the rug mixing with the oil and together with its high-quality makeup allows for less servicing requirements. If you are running a business or require quick and easy horse rug and equipment repairs at home then this is the machine for you.

This machine comes as a complete unit with a locally made, top of the range custom built plywood bench, and fully adjustable powder coated stand and a powerful motor. Accessories included are extra bobbins, needles, screwdrivers, clippers, oil bottle, instruction and parts manual.

SMA offers easy 24 hour online parts ordering.
