Experience has shown that the average rigger who wishes to set up a loft needs three initial machines: a medium weight single needle sewing machine for canopy repair; A double needle sewing machine with a binder or taping attachment for binding material and light manufacture; and a heavy duty zigzag sewing machine for suspension line repair and replacement. Due to the continuously growing demands of sewing speed and seam safety in in modern production processes, more and more specialized industrial sewing machines are used in mass production manufacturing military parachute, rocket parachute, cargo parachute, marquees, tents, sails, tarpaulins, shade structures, awnings, gliders and canvas covers.
Model 740: single needle walking foot lockstitch sewing machine with extended arm which is higher & longer than most standard machines, mainly used for detailed work and finishing in the production of parachute, sails, tents, tarpaulins and marquees, for example canopy repair, seam binding and panel assembly.
Model 74420: double needle compound feed (triple feed) industrial sewing machine with larger bobbin capacity (spool capacity). This two needle sewing machine is very useful sewing machine for binding material and light manufacture of parachute, sails, tents, tarpaulins and marquees.

Model 7373BV: super heavy duty walking foot single needle industrial sewing machine with reverse and large Barrel shuttle hook, specialize in sewing 5-cord nylon or heavier thread used in the manufacture and repair of parachute harnesses. Compare to 733, this heavy duty harness sewing machine features low cost, which is affordable by most parachute riggers as well as tents and tarpaulins manufacturers.
Model 9266: extra heavy duty straight stitch and zig-zag industrial sewing machine. This zigzag sewing machine will also do multiple duty in production of parachute, sails and tents. Its primary purpose is for straight stitch and zigzag sewing in corners patches, reef patches and webbing reinforcement. However, adjusting the stitch regulator allows the rigger to do an acceptable job sewing bar tacks, by changing the stitch length and adjusting the width to the narrowest setting. Use as heavy duty bar tacking machine to make sewn eye (bar-tacked loops) at end of ropes and binding thimbles.
Model 9366-31: extra heavy duty long arm zigzag sewing machine with 4 cam for straight stitch, 1-step (2-points), 2-step (3-points), 3-step (4-points) zigzag, cover all demands in the production of sails, military parachute, rocket parachute, cargo parachute, marquees, tents, sails, tarpaulins, shade structures, awnings, gliders and canvas covers. The basic mechanics (Shuttle hook, adjustments and timing) is the same with Adler 366 and Adler 266, therefore it is easier for parachute rigger and marquees and tents manufacturers already worked with these Durkopp Adler zigzag sewing machines.
Model 728-30: two needle extra heavy duty long arm compound feed industrial sewing machine with puller feed (optional).
