The Singer 4423 is a heavyweight sewing machine aimed towards operators looking to do some serious sewing. Featuring a very strong motor with a high rate of sewing speed, there are few fabrics (or even stacks of fabrics) that will get in its way. In its brochure, SINGER writes that the motor is “a stronger motor than standard sewing machines allowing it to sew through heavyweight fabrics with ease”, claiming that it is 60% stronger.
Singer 4423 Key Features
Heavyweight Motor – As mentioned above, this model is aimed towards those who are looking to do heavy duty sewing. This includes fabrics like raw denim. While some other models spend much of the built cost on things like flashy LCD screens, this unit puts this money towards a stronger motor. This motor can make as many as 1,100 stitches in just one minute.
Heavyweight Metal Frame – Similar to how SINGER puts much of the built cost into the motor, they also focused on providing a heavyweight framework for the motor to work within. With more power comes more vibration. To ensure that this extra power does not cause skipping of the needle while sewing, SINGER created a very stiff frame to hold all of the parts together in sync. The bed plate is even made from stainless steel.
High Presser Foot Lifter – To continue along with the workhorse theme, the item features a high-pressure foot lifter. This is in order to accommodate the thick layers of fabrics that will inevitably put this machine to the test.
In addition to these heavyweight centric features, the machine also comes with a slew of other features that will make any operator happy. First off, it comes along with 23 pre-programmed stitches: 6 basic, 4 stretch, 12 decorative, and 1 buttonhole. The bobbin is a top drop-in style (and the cover is clear) and it has an automatic needle threader. Lastly, it features a fantastic 1 step buttonhole that is fully automatic.
We like it. This item is a great choice for those looking for a heavy duty sewing machine with a lightweight price. It isn’t fancy or particularly stylish, but it gets the job done and does it well. You will be hard pressed to find a material that this model cannot sew. All of its features are geared towards taking care of any fabric that you throw at it. If you need a heavy duty model but don’t require all the frills, this is for you.
