Singer Heavy Duty Industrial Strength Sewing Machine Reviews

There are two main lines of heavy duty Singer machines available online: the HD (heavy duty) and CG (commercial grade).

The sewing machines that are made to stand up to school classroom use, small businesses, and heavy fabrics are the CG series.

The HD series is meant to be somewhat stronger and faster than standard home sewing machines, but they are made for heavy duty home sewing not industry.

Singer CG 550 Review

pros

  • Truly made to be industrial strength.
  • Simple to use.
  • Sturdily made.

cons

  • Takes some learning correct needles and thread for each type of fabric.
  • Plastic bobbin case.
  • No fancy stitches.

bottomline

If you are looking for a Singer sewing machine for schools, for a small business, or just for home use on tough fabrics like denim, upholstery, curtains, and webbing, this is probably the machine you want. Reports of problems with timing seem to be lemon machines, so choose to purchase from a company that will replace yours if you get a DOA machine.

Features1

The Singer CG 550 and 590 are made for basic stitching, though they both have some perks over the CG 500. We recommend the CG 550 due to the very reasonable price point and still good amount of features such as 4-step buttonhole function, stretch stitch (see the video above), and free arm option. This machine is stronger and faster than the average home sewing machine.

Up to 1,100 stitches per minute You'll sew faster and easier.
Top Drop-In Bobbin Drop in bobbins are much easier to manage than front mounted bobbins.
Push Button Reverse Stitch Makes it easy to reverse stitch at beginning and end of your seams for clean, professional sewing.
Accessories Included All the presser feet you'll need to get started on your dream projects, and of course the user manual.
Priced under $300 This is a commercial grade machine made to last.

Simple and easy to use, no complications, made to sew through very thick material. This is a hard working machine with commercial capabilities, but able to sew on delicate fabrics if you take the time to learn about the right needles and thread for the job.

alert Dislikes

Vibrates at higher speeds. Plastic bobbin case. Reports of timing going off quickly.

Summary

Read the manual and choose correct thread and needles for your fabric. This will avoid most any problem with the thread snagging or bird nesting.

This is a no-frills workhorse that can sew for classrooms or a small business. The machine is made to be stronger and faster than standard home sewing machines. Reports of problems with timing seem to be lemon machines, so choose to purchase from a company that will replace yours if you get a DOA machine.

Singer HD-110 Review

pros

  • Needle threader
  • Standard easy Singer threading system
  • Top Drop-in Bobbin

cons

  • Plastic needle holder and plastic bobbin holder.
  • The light is poor and illuminates behind the needle, instead of in front.
  • Needle easily pulled out of position (Left/Center/Right).

bottomline

  • This machine is not a fully industrial strength sewing machine.
  • The plastic needle holder and plastic bobbin holder are close to deal breakers.
  • Also frequent reports of the timing going off means a lot of frustrated users.

Features1

This machine is also meant to be a no-frills heavy duty sewing machine. Please be aware that though the picture looks like metal, the body is plastic made to look like metal.

10 built-in stitches Everything you need for strong basic sewing.
Built-in needle threader. Get started more quickly with easy threading.
Free arm Sew smaller areas, sleeves, etc..
Twin Needle Great for a really professional look, especially on shirts and tailored clothing.
Auto Threading Make your life easier with auto threading.

Summary

This machine is not a fully industrial strength sewing machine. The plastic needle holder and plastic bobbin holder are close to deal breakers. Also frequent reports of the timing going off mean a lot of frustrated users. We really recommend purchasing the CG 550 instead.
