Default redline embroidery machine

Hi,

Can anybody tell me if the brand Redline is a good brand? I am thinking to buy one but I am not sure if this is a good brand.

Thank you

I've never heard of it or seen it at ISS AC. I would want to know who makes it, is it a knock of another brand, warranty and service information and see one run my designs. Why are you choosing it over know brands? I checked their site and it looks like its an affordable compact machine. I would want to make sure it will hold up to working 8-12 hours daily for years. What is the resell value? Do you plan to purchase the Perla software they offer? I haven't heard of that either.

Hi Jennifer,
I agree with you. I think I need to get as much information about this machine before I jump into conclusions. And thank you for answering my question.

I've looked at Redline because I need to pick up a 2nd head or maybe even their 2-head machine. My concern is that the company/machine haven't been around long enough to establish a good track record. It's hard to say how well they'll hold up in a truly commercial environment, running 8-10 hours at least 5 days a week for years like a Tajima or Barudan machine will.

They have a couple of facebook groups, one for owners and one for lookers. I'm a member of both and they let me stick around the owners page because I give good advice and don't trash their machines even though I don't own one. They use Tajima hoops and I believe are at least partly made in Japan. They claim the machine is mostly metal, very little plastic and that they're easy to work on.

Thank you for sharing this information with me. The problem is that I haven't found a technician here in LA. And I'm concerned that this company hasn't been in business for a long time, so I just don't want to make the wrong decision for my business.

From what I understand, they have 1 technician who offers phone support. He is apparently very sharp and is able to walk you through almost any issue over the phone. If this is so, then it really is a money saver.

Last time I had a tech out, it cost me $250 and he was there less than 30 minutes to just give my machine a once over, set my mind at ease over a issue I thought I had, show me how to grease my machine, and pronounced it clean and in good shape.

Since I think the Redline a Tajima knock off, anyone who works on Tajima should be able to fix any problem that the Redline tech cannot walk you through over the phone.

It looks identical to my Highland machine..
Right down to the lables. If that's the case it's Chinese.. But I'm quite happy with mine even after 16 months

Hi and thank you for answering my question

How often do you run the machine?

It would be great if you could hear one run at a show. One criteria I used to initially compare different machine brands was how do they sound when running. If you can attend a show you'll discover some machines "clank" along while others hum. The ones that hum are the "built-to-last" brands where the mechanics work perfectly together so the machine lasts for a long time under heavy work conditions.

I am a Tech and work on these and many other Chinese brands. Redline sells the machine out of his house/garage and doesn't use techs. He wants people to be able to fix it on their own. My advice to you is to stay away from Chinese machines. There is only 1 or 2 Chinese machines I think are a good machine for the money. If you are interested in a new SWF shoot me a PM since I am now a distributor for Sunstar. I would take a Tajima, Barudan or SWF even a Happy before I ever thought about a Chinese machine
