Ultrafeed® Package Comparison Chart

Item # X-HT-300084

Our Sailrite® Ultrafeed® LS-1 and LSZ-1 Sewing Machines are heavy-duty, portable sewing machines. There’s a reason the Ultrafeed is our flagship product; its superior quality, solid cast-iron design, all-metal internal components and performance capabilities makes it the best sewing machine in its class. If you know whether you want an Ultrafeed LS-1 or LSZ-1, the next choice to make is which package you need. We offer three versions of both machines: BASIC, PLUS and PREMIUM. The packages vary by price point and the number of add-ons and upgrades that come with the machine. We’ve made a handy chart comparing the three packages so you can easily see what each package offers so you can choose the right one for your sewing needs.

Once you make the decision to invest in an Ultrafeed Sewing Machine, it will take the quality and productivity of your sewing to new heights. Whether you pick the straight stitch only LS-1 or the straight and zigzag stitch LSZ-1, you won’t regret choosing an Ultrafeed. If you need help understanding the differences between the LS-1 and LSZ-1, read our blog “Choosing Between the Ultrafeed LS-1 and LSZ-1” (300350XHT) for a detailed chart comparison of the two along with which common sewing projects require either a straight or zigzag stitch. That way, you can pick the machine that best suits the projects you work on.

In 2021, we introduced the revolutionary WorkerB® Power Pack motor system to our PREMIUM 110V packages. With this 1/4 horsepower motor, the Ultrafeed PREMIUM delivers 2.5 times the power of other portable machines. The WorkerB delivers more speed control than ever before seen on a portable sewing machine. The power-boosting control box maintains control and consistent speed even when sewing through thick assemblies. This means that when you sew through incredibly thick or dense material, the control box routes more power to the motor so the machine doesn’t slow down or lose control.

When you have your Ultrafeed model selected, the final decision to make is whether you need the BASIC, PLUS or PREMIUM package. Download our chart listing all the add-ons and upgrades in each package so you can make an informed decision. Click the button below to download the chart:
