Juki Exceed HZL-F400 Quilt Pro Computerized Sewing Machine
Designed for both sewing and quilting, the Juki Exceed HZL-F400 is a powerful machine that can be used for just about any project. It is a machine with the features even professional sewists need at the size and price of a personal model.
The Juki HZL-F400 is strong, reliable, and capable, everything needed to make clothing, home decor, quilting, and much more. This versatile model is a great choice for the more experienced sewist who wants to do a little bit of everything!
The great features begin with the HZL-F400’s large LCD control panel and keypad that controls stitch selection and customization, up/down needle position memory, thread trimming, foot control functions, pattern memory, LCD display contrast, onboard sewing guide, and more machine features.
It has 157 built-in stitches, including 16 different buttonholes and 3 letter fonts and uses Juki’s Perfect Stitch needle placement feature for easier needle placement within a stitch pattern.
Adding to its amazing list of features, the Juki HZL-F400 includes Juki’s patented Box Feed feed dog system that prevents the bunching and stretching frequently experienced with standard feed dogs that move the fabric in an oval.
It couldn’t be easier to sew a wide range of fabrics, from delicate to thick and heavy fabric or stitch multiple layers together with ease. The presser foot pressure is also adjustable, especially important for quilting multiple fabric layers.
Other great performance and convenience features on the Exceed HZL-F400 include dual LED lights that illuminate the entire sewing area, quick thread, and bobbin winding functions, a presser foot knee lift lever, automatic needle threading, and a foot controller that can be programmed for thread trimming.

Industrial Sewing Machine Technology in order to provide beautiful seams and outstanding feed performance, JUKI adopted the box feed system. The conventional feed mechanism is oval motion. On the other hand, the box feed moves the feed dog in a box motion. This eliminates material shrinking and shifting. This accurate feeding system provides superior stitch quality for a variety of light to heavy weight fabrics.
Capable of Sewing a Width Range of Fabrics
Thick fabrics can be sewn with ease. Leather, denim, and canvas are no problem for this machine. No fabric shrinkage even while sewing on extra lightweight materials.
Industrial Quality Buttonholes
Using a unique sensor method, HZL-F series sews beautiful buttonholes regardless of the type of material and overlapped sections. 16 types of buttonholes are available for your needs. Now it is possible to adjust the cutting width of the buttonholes in 3 steps.
Foot Controller with Thread Trimming Function
HZL-F series trims both needle and bobbin threads automatically by pressing the heel side of the foot controller. It is also possible to trim threads with a button located at machine body.
With this feature you can concentrate on your project while automatically cutting the thread!
Perfect Stitch and Needle Placement
The Exceed series now has a feature that allows you to move the position of a complete pattern without changing the width, as well as variable needle positions that allows you to place the needle anywhere you want.
Wide Sewing Space
HZL-F series has a wider underarmspace, with a wider table. It is more enjoyable and comfortable to work with large projects.
Presser foot can be raised and lowered by the knee-lifting lever. You now can have both hands free when trying to line up those hard to handle fabrics. The presser foot lift is up to 12 mm when the lever is used.

Straight out of the box a great machine. Excellent for piecing and quilting.
I had outgrown the Singer machine I bought just a few months ago to replace my 20 year-old Kenmore machine, and I was looking for something that would be as much of a workhorse as my old Kenmore but with the modern features of the Singer. Granted, I had to pay the price to get it, but this machine is exactly what I wanted. I doubt that I will ever truly have a need for many of the decorative stitches this machine offers, but it's nice to know they are available. I primarily sew apparel, particularly suit jackets and tailored business clothing, so features like automatic buttonholes, the ability to adjust presser foot pressure (in order to sew thin lining fabrics and even tissue-weight knits), and the power to sew through heavy wool and tweed fabrics without bogging down are a must. I also appreciate the automatic thread tension feature, the large and comfortable foot pedal, and the clear LCD display. Other features like the automatic needle threader and thread trimmer are nice, but not essential so I don't bother with either of them. The built-in storage unit that keeps all the extra feet and small odds and ends neat and organized is one example of this machine's thoughtful design, as is the threading diagram with numbered points printed right on the machine (especially helpful during the "getting to know you" phase!). But truly, the best part is that this machine is substantial and sturdy, and is capable of handling fabrics from the thinnest and most slippery satin to jacket-weight faux leather, and everything in between. I anticipate that we will have a very happy partnership for many years to come.
Really like the machine. Very smooth.
