On the older machines with Maxi Stitches, you had to balance some of them. My 2170 still has the balance technique in the manual.

To get the machine to move sideways, Pfaff uses a stepper motor. In the earlier models, the stepper could cause the unbalance, so Pfaff added the instructions to rebalance.

Just in case, look in the manual.

I had the 1475, and like another poster, would use 3 lines to keep the stitches centered, and rebalance if necessary.

The 2170 also had the option of using the Maxis in a hoop. You could use a continuous hoop and do it that way. The embroidery arm would be moving the hoop in that case.
