Default Thinking about getting a Juki straight stitch machine

I'm considering two Juki machines, both have excellent reviews. They are the Juki TL2010Q priced at $999.00 on Amazon and the Juki TL2200QVP Mini which at the closest dealer is $1399.00. For that extra 400.00, you get a real commercial motor, otherwise both machines are the same except for paint job. My question is do I really need a commercial motor? I do not sew 24/7 and probably will use it exclusively for piecing. So when I'm quilting a project, I may not use it for days. And, If you consistently run a high speed commercial motor at low enough speeds, you risk burning out the motor. I'm not Suzy speed sewer.
So, If you had the choice, which would you purchase? Also, has anyone purchased the 2010 from Amazon? I got burned once with a Singer , don't want to do it again. TIA....

Not sure what you mean by Comercial motor. The 2010 is just an older model and very similar. Many love their straight stitch juki and I haven't heard of anyone having any issues with the 2010. I would contact juki directly about the motor to make sure you are getting accurate info

I considered both and purchased the TL2200QVP mini last summer and it's a fabulous machine! At the time, the price difference was $200 and I opted for the 2200 because it included several feet that the 2010 did not (worth $100 or so dollars?) and it was represented by my local dealer to have a newer and stronger motor than the 2010.

I purchased my 2200 from The Fabric Hut in Norfolk, VA for much less than $1,399. In fact, I just saw them at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival offering the TL2200qvp mini for $999.

Having said all of that - I don't think you could go wrong with either machine. They are wonderful and give you a beautiful straight stitch on any type of fabric you put under that needle!

Best of luck -
Christine

I bought my Juki TL2010Q from Amazon last June and have not regretted it for one moment! This machine is great! I’ve had no problems with the machine or with purchasing off Amazon and 6 months later steered my husband to Amazon for Juki MO 654ED serger for my Christmas present.

I have a straight stitch only Juki TL98QE, Bought in 2008. Never been in the shop. 9" throat. I am starting to just quilt on it, because I like the foot pedal. I piece on my Babylock Jane, that foot pedal is not as likeable.

If I ever need another machine it will be a Juki, with largest throat they have.

I have an older Juki TL98Q, which is an all metal straight stitch only machine. It is a real workhorse and will sew through pretty much anything--and it's fast! I would not part with it for anything!

I have the 2010Q and have never had a need for a stronger motor. I can see getting the stronger one if you are going to do tote bags, leather or some heavy upholstery items. But if it comes with more feet as Christine's did, that might be worth it. Tough choice, the best thing is that I don't think you could go wrong either way.

I recently bought a Juki 2010Q. Somewhere I read that that motor is a semi-industrial one. I wanted that model for the speed control. Facebook has a group specifically for owners of the Juki 2010Q that you can get lots of info from and they may also have other Juki groups too. Check it out.

both of my local my Juki dealers said the 2200 Mini and the 2010 are exactly the same machine except for slight cosmetic changes to rebrand it as a mini longarm (put a flower sticker on it and made the end purple). Except for a couple extra feet and a rubber thingie to put under the pedal to stop the cutter (all of which you can purchase separately) it's the same machine. I spent quite a bit of time sewing on both of them when I was looking, couldn't tell any difference whatsoever. They both handled multiple thicknesses of fabrics like butter. They are selling both here locally for the same price. I don't like flowery looking things so I opted for the 2010 for the plain white look. I wouldn't pay more for the 2200 Mini but that's just me. You can get both online for $999 easily.

excellent choice! I've had that exact serger for over 10 years and it works like a dream! Made countless clothes and quilts and things with it, Love it
