Some of the consumer reports on Serger sewing machines include reviews for the Brother 1034D Serger, the Baby Lock Eclipse DX Serger and the Juki MO-735 Serger with Coverstitch. The reviews also include a variety of information about each sewing machine based on its specific purpose.
The Brother 1034D Serger comes pre-threaded, is easy to use and sews up to 1,300 stitches per minute with an adjustable stitch width. It also features a free arm and LED lights for better viewing of the work in progress. However, this Serger sewing machine is a bit noisy, takes time to learn the necessary threading technique and, as of 2015, it comes with a short-term 90 day warranty.
Reviewers compliment the Baby Lock Eclipse DX Serger on its automatic threading, its consistent stitch balance and the fact that it cuts cleanly. This sewing machine is also easy to use, lightweight, durable and versatile. Unfortunately, this sewing machine is only sold through authorized dealers.
Additional consumer reports appreciate the quietness of the Juki MO-735 Serger with Coverstitch. In addition, this dual purpose machine is capable of working through a variety of fabric types and weights, and it creates fine edges and straight stitches. The negatives associated with this machine include the difficult learning curve and the lack of help from the included user manuals.
