    I would like to know the pros and cons why some people like them and others do not, just curious what the fuss is all about

    Having had 3 machines without it and now have one with, I will continue to choose one with. I LOVE not having to attach a special foot for even-feed quilting (and it never worked all that great to begin with). Now, it's always there and always working perfectly. LOVE it. (Did I say that already?)

    Integrated dual transportation. Here's a video from Pfaff that shows how it works.

    My PFAFF IDT sews so straight. My Viking add-on walking foot is bulky and gets in my way as I am threading and does not sew nearly as well! Love love love my Pfaff

    Janome is another machine you can get IDT's on now too I do believe. For years the Pfaff company was the only machine with it on, but since they were sold the patten on the IDT is no longer exclusive to Pfaff.

    Great feature and I am another lover of it!

    I used to have a foot like that on an industrial machine when I was quilting down filled vests and coats. Very nice addition. Probably not cheap either.

    IDT is the main reason we bought our first Pfaff and it would take something major to get us to switch now. We love our Pfaffs!

    I saw the video and the Janome 600P has a similar action but you need to change the feet for a special one with which the back clicks onto before sewing.

    IDT was the reason I bought my pfaff as well. I love it! It makes a huge difference, to the point where even though I'm not the most aware person, I notice straight away when I've left it off and start straight stitching.

    The only con I have is that I could've bought a janome without IDT for the same price or cheaper with more features (such as thread snips, knee lift etc, I have the quilt expression 2.0) but I'd say it's well worth the price.

    Well now I feel really silly. My first thought was that it was a secret code like lol or lmao. Then I thought it might be a strange sort of smiley face...:) I even thought it was a quilt square pattern. I even thought of a new birthcontrol method :oops:

    To discover it is a particular capability of a sewing machine made in Utah...the best machine ever made...I feel really stupid. I see why you call it IDT...try saying Integrated Dual Transportation 3 times really fast. :lol:

    My machine is a cheap Brother from Walmart. The Pfaff I inherited from my best friend last May still uses a treadle and can't even zigzag...but I'll keep it just the same.

    Love my Pfaff with the IDT. I have other machines (Featherweight, Elna) but my Pfaff is still my go-to machine. And you can change sewing machine feet and still have the walking foot action.

    I love my Pfaff also, and always sew with the IDT. I do like how easy it is to disconnect if you need to do a project without it.
