Sailrite® Ultrafeed® LSZ-1 BASIC Walking Foot Sewing Machine (220-240V)
SKU: 220601


The Sailrite® Ultrafeed® LSZ-1 BASIC (220-240V/50 Hz) Sewing Machine package features our powerful, portable, straight/zigzag stitch walking foot sewing machine. This package is perfect for first-time sewers who are looking for an easily portable, heavy-duty machine, for boat owners looking to sew heavy canvas or vinyl on their boat, or for a home sewer wanting a machine that can handle heavy sewing assemblies. The Ultrafeed LSZ-1 excels in performance and versatility, sewing in both straight and zigzag stitches. Built with the toughest, most dependable parts, the Ultrafeed easily sews through heavy materials like heavy canvas, denim, leather and upholstery fabrics, but it’s also versatile enough to sew through lighter home fabrics with ease. The Ultrafeed LSZ-1 can handle all sails for most 35-foot boats. For larger boats, it will depend on the weight of the sailcloth and the size of the sail. Its sewing capabilities have been proven in up to 10 layers of heavy canvas and eight layers of Dacron® sailcloth.

The Ultrafeed LSZ-1 BASIC Package features the Ultrafeed LSZ-1 (220-240V) Sewing Machine (Patent #6499415) in the sturdy Ultrafeed® Wooden Base and the EZ Set™ Stitch Length Plate, which comes preinstalled on the machine.

Power Plus® Balance Wheel

The Ultrafeed BASIC Package includes the Sailrite® Power Plus® Balance Wheel, which has double the power and is twice the size of a traditional balance wheel for more slow speed power and control. It enables you to sew heavy and thick assemblies at comfortably slow speeds for precise stitching. Powering the machine is a 220-240V AC motor (8,200 rpm at 0.7 amps) and a cogged belt and pulley drive system. Operate using the fully grounded, variable speed, electronic foot control with two-pin European plug.

To read more about our oversized balance wheels and how they help power the machine, read our blog, ”Size Matters: The Importance of Balance Wheels.”

Patented Posi-Pin® Safety Shear

This patented sacrificial pin (Patent #7438009) protects your machine from damage. If you sew over something you shouldn’t, the pin will break and your machine will stop operating in order to protect the machine. Pulling the pin out also makes the machine stop working, which is an excellent additional safety feature. As an added perk, it also makes winding bobbins quick and easy.

To learn more about our patented Posi-Pin® Safety Shear, read "Sewing Machine Safety Clutch vs. Posi-Pin Safety Shear."

Simple, Straightforward Sewing

An extra-wide (19mm) mechanical walking presser foot works with the feed dog to pull thick layers of fabric through the machine at consistent speeds for symmetrical stitching. The EZ Set™ Stitch Length Plate helps to keep stitch length consistent when switching from forward to reverse. Switching directions is made quick and easy by the spring-loaded stitch length lever. Easily maintain your seam allowances with 1/2-inch, 3/4-inch and 1-inch markings right on the needle plate.

The presser foot features a built-in welting tunnel for sewing piping up to 5/32 inch and the needle positioning lever moves the needle left, right and center so you can sew marine zippers without changing the foot.

Conveniently Portable

The Ultrafeed is built to be tough enough to go wherever you go. Move it around your home, or take it in your boat or RV! The Ultrafeed Wooden Base is a solid, self-supporting MDF (medium-density fiberboard) base with built-in handholds on either side to make your machine easy to carry.

Sewing Capabilities

The Ultrafeed features a 3/8-inch-high foot lift and a best-in-class needle bar stroke, so you can sew virtually anything you can fit underneath the foot. The Ultrafeed can be easily adjusted to sew lighter weight home décor fabric, too, so it can be your go-to machine for numerous projects. Set the variable stitch length up to 6mm in straight stitch and up to 5mm in zigzag width and you’re ready to go. The Ultrafeed will easily sew through fabrics like:

  • Heavy canvas
  • Upholstery fabrics
  • Denim
  • Vinyl
  • Window material
  • Soft leather
  • Drapery material
  • Sailcloth
  • And more!

Does its job well

Only used it once so far to repair a Hobie trampoline. It sewed through the thick materials (2 x canvas plus PVC backing) without any difficulty and was quite easy to use. The machine is straight forward to sew with, and will no doubt be very useful for many sailing adventures to come!

Thank you SailRite for building a great and quality portable sewing machine.

Thank you for building a great and quality portable sewing machine. I'm very pleased with it, and know it'll sew anything I want it to for years to come. There was a bit of a hang up with the local Auckland Courier system, but it eventually got sorted and I understand the Couriers are up against the wall coping with the Covid-19 restrictions, anyway the machine got here undamaged and I'm grateful for that. Once again, thank you SailRite for your good work, and I wish you all the best. Kind Regards, Dr. Jim Duncan.
