Sale $945.00/EA
20 Available


The Sailrite® Ultrafeed® LSZ-1 BASIC 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 sailcloth on their boat, or for a home sewer wanting a machine that can handle heavy sewing assemblies. The Ultrafeed LSZ-1 Sewing Machine 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 sailcloth, heavy canvas, denim 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 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 110V AC motor (6,600 rpm at 1.5 amps) and a cogged belt and pulley drive system. Operate using the fully grounded, variable speed, electronic foot control.

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) zigzag 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" and a 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
  • Sailcloth
  • Upholstery fabrics
  • Denim
  • Vinyl
  • Window material
  • Soft leather
  • Drapery material
  • And more!

Workhorse of a machine

I bought this machine to specifically sew leather to up my bag making game. I love it! what a work horse! It’s made in the USA, and their website is packed with how to info. Would 100% recommend this machine, or anything else this company sells!

Robust and well working sewing machine right out of the box !

I used this sewing machine before - the one from our sailing club. This new one that we bought for us comes perfectly adjusted with some sample stitches is much easier to work with. I like the tilt mechanism to get to the underside and I like the walking foot as well as the wooden base that is standard on the BASIC. There was no more than 4" of upper thread left, so I had to go the next day and buy some thread to try her out. Would be nice if there were a few yards of the same thread that was used to adjust the sewing machine. A sewing machine is only as good as the service and support and Eric does a great job with the videos. The instruction booklet is also very good, it includes a pictured part list and step by step instructions for problem solving.

Amazing machine!

My sewing work is getting that much better with this amazing machine! It's a work horse. It breaks in after a few weeks and feels even better when you get used to it. Awesome machine!

LSZ-1 is a beast.

This machine is a beast! I sew mostly outdoor gear and it powers through a variety of heavy duty material. I did have difficulty at first sewing neoprene. I was using V46 polyester thread from a different source and the LSZ-1 did not sew well (long stretches of skipped stitches). I changed to thread from Sailrite ) V69 and V92 and the machine worked beautifully; no missed stitches. I do wish the thread tension adjustment was calibrated in some fashion so that you could return to prior settings when switching between different materials. Currently you have to judge tension by how many turns of the dial one uses.
