Necchi Pro 4070 Overlocker & Coverstitch
Why choose the Necchi Pro 4070 from us?
Looking for a top of the line overlocker that also can sew a coverstitch? Look no further than the Necchi 4070 5-thread overlocker. Use 2, 3, 4 or 5 threads to produce wonderful neat overlock edges or 2 or 3 thread coverstich at tremendous speeds up to 1300 stitches-per-minute.
With a rather large space to the right of the needle in fact 10cm, which gives further space for double or triple coverstitch programs, so when the cover stitch rest is in place the sewing bed is nearly 28cm x 20cm wide.
This Necchi 4070 has a sleeve arm so when in overlocking mode, the cutting width can be adjusted up to 5.7mm or swing the cutter out the way if not needed. Rolled hemming is a simple lever, no need to remove the needle plate. Stitch length (up to 5mm) and differential feed (ratio 0.6-2.0) can also be adjusted as required.
As well as the hard plastic fabric trim catcher which clips in to place for either coverhems or overlocking, the loopers covering flap swings down and there is storage for essential accessories like tweezers, quick needle threader, spreader and screw driver.
In total 24 stitch programs are available, many in both, wide or narrow options:
5-Thread safety stitch
4-Thread safety stitch
2-Thread overlock, thanks to the included spreader
2- Needle coverstitch
3- Needle triple coverstitch

I am so pleased I decided to take the plunge and buy this overlocker. I did quite a lot of research but eventually chose the necchi pro 4070 because it seemed to be one of the few machines that did cover-stitching as well as overlocking and it also has a free arm which I thought would be useful. I have not tried cover-stitching with it yet but have been highly satisfied with all of the overlocking I have done so far. The machine is smooth yet powerful and it is easy to see the needle and blade so you can understand what you are sewing and how the machine is working. The stitching quality has been very good and I have also managed to re-thread it without too much trouble. The only real negative I have found is the positioning of the handle as it is not ideally placed if you wish to move the machine around whilst it is still fully threaded up. A brighter light would also be welcome but that is probably my eye sight! If you are thinking about buying an overlocker I would say go for it - I wish I had bought mine years ago. I am a beginner/intermediate home sewist.
