The Heavy Duty Swift is a "sister" product to our Heavy Duty Ball Winder. It was designed to be a commercial grade yarn swift with complete expandability to incorporate the following features:
2 Yard / 2 Meter capacity - the unit can make skeins from 28" to 80" in circumference
The Swift and Skein-winders are identical in construction. The skein-winder has an Electronic Rotation Counter (ERC) installed (the swift has no counter)
Both units have yardage decals on all four arm segments.
Either unit can be easily motorized by adding our optional motor drive
The motor drive and ERC work together to provide automatic control over the winding operation without user intervention.
Both units have a heavy duty ball handle that rotates freely in your hand. This is our Ergo Handle and it is a pleasure to turn. It is a variant of the handle used on our popular ball winder.
Optional "Flexi-Skeiner" yarn guide kits can be purchased that allow the user to wind 2 or 3 skeins at one time. We also offer a high capacity guide as well which can hold 1 to 2 lbs.
