Strauch Motorized Finest 400 Single Wide Drum Carder
Model 400 Finest Motorized. These high tech drumcarders feature both variable speed AND reverse functions. The "infinitely variable speed" feature (not just two or three speed settings) is especially valuable if you work with fine fibers like alpaca, merino, cashmere, etc. The carders use very high quality, durable, electronically controlled motors that are made in the USA! Both motor and electronic controller were engineered by the manufacturer to be quiet, robust, dependable, self-diagnostic and trouble-free. The chain drive mechanism provides a constant positive non-slipping action resulting in performance that is more consistant than that of a typical belt drive carder.
Advantages of a Motorized Carder:
- You save time. This is especially important if you are carding a lot of fibers for your own use or for others as a cottage industry;
- More control. Both hands are free so you can control how the fiber is being carded or blended;
- An enjoyable experience. If you have wrist, elbow and/or shoulder issues, you will find your carding experience painless and relaxing;
- Consistency. You will be able to card fibers at a consistent speed and make consistent batts.
