This is quite literally the best tufting machine I've come across. It's relatively lightweight and has a huge range of pile height.
You can get things *really* fluffy with this guy! Despite the complicated setup the machine is delightful simple and compact!
As a Mechatronics engineer I give the people who engineered this machine a giant thumbs up! I highly recommend it as an investment if you can manage it. I would even say it's suitable for a beginner as long as you have some understanding of machinery or are willing to put a bit of time in to understand the pneumatic system before rushing in to use the gun!
There are some videos now available on my website showing how to change from loop to cut pile and visa versa and how to change the pile height.
Please note you will need an air compressor for this machine.
Air compressor requirements:
40L or more
200l/min flow rate *this is really really important!*
Consistent pressure at 120psi of 8 bar - ideally you need a compressor capable of 10 bar so that you consistently get 8 bar to your machine
AUS and NZ and Europe fittings are primarily 1/4" Nitto or Aro.
Because the machine comes with a 3/8" aro. Male fitting you will need a 3/8" female aro fitting (I found mine at blackwoods safety NZ) T
hen you will need a brass bps female reducer 3/8" to 1/4" to attach it to a 1/4" hose. (I got mine at RS components.)
Please see our videos for a complete guide to this machine!
