Barudan 2 head cost
« on: March 11, 2019, 06:05:52 PM »
Any buddy know what a Barudan 2 head runs?
Is it better than Tajima and SWF.
Can you get closer to the bill on it vs the others??
Better for foam??

Thanks,
Shane

I think a 2 head is around 26-28k. I could be wrong on that but it should be in that range. From what I'm told they are a superior machine for hats. My brother is running a Melco and getting some great results, but he's itching to get a Barudan.

Barudan machines are better than Tajima machines and both Barudan and Tajima are far better than SWF.
The Barudan will cost you though. Call them get a quote

IMO get at least a 4 or 6 head. You'll regret it later if not.

Barudan and Tajima are similar in cost, at least they were when I got my last quote.

We've had almost zero downtime with both of ours.  What is cool is certified techs have to fill out service forms that go to Barudan when a machine is repaired.  They take that information and track it to find weak spots in the machine and improve upon that in future machines.  It's really a smart system.

Rough estimate of 10-14k per head.
I spend too much money on equipment...

You might want to look at a 4 or 6 head Tajima. Tajima is a rock solid machine.
The 4 head shouldn't be much, much more...

Tajima is a rock solid machine. SWF is close to child's play compared to these other two.

Get a quote on a 4 and 6 just to have your numbers. 2 head is not a production machine.

I agree with brandt.  A 2 head is great once you are established in embroidery for small runs of caps or something like that where you don't want to tie up a bigger machine.  We got a single head for stuff like that.  A 2 head probably would have been a better move, but for us it works.

we started with a single, then we happened upon a double... we just got a 6 head...

I would def go with a 4 or 6.. if you only get a double you will outgrow really fast..

we like our double head for names, because ours has the Digital screen where you can actually see whats stitching, so its a good last spell check.. the 6 and single just have the file name.

Machine cost... a 6 head is not even 2x the cost of a 2 head, so you are getting 3x the output for less than 2x the price and its versatile. You can turn off the heads and do names if you need. Or you can use them all and work 3x faster on bulk orders. It matters at the end of the day.
