Default Tajima and Barudan machines

We are thinking about buying a 6 head machine, Tajima or Barudan, new or secondhand.
At the moment we are using only SWF machines, but we do not want anymore of those.
Can you folks suggest any models of those 2 brands to prefer or stay away from, new or secondhand, as we do not know them particularly well.

Hei Olsen,

Velkommen til digitsmith!

We use both Tajima and Barudan machines in my shop. They are both great. I prefer the Barudan though, as they are better at the fine details and are a little smoother on intricate designs. I like their cap system too, seem to have less problems with registration.

Tajima's I find to have a more user friendly control panel, and their chenille machines run beautifully. I find that the Tajima's are a little easier to work on if maintenance is needed.

If you can afford to buy new, by all means do. When buying a new machine you will (usually) get training for free, delivery, and set-up by professionals. They won't leave until your machine is running. If you buy used, just make sure the machine has been well maintained, and get a feel for the person selling it. If they are selling it due to hard times and need the money, those are the best machines to buy, because most of the time they have no issues, the sellers just need money. Try not to buy a used one out of a high-volume production shop, as they are not taken care of as well as they should be.

Glad you made the switch from SWF, they are awful machines. I had to take them to court over the machine I bought!

Hope that helped you, let me know if you have any more questions.
Lykke til!
(I haven't spoken Norwegian since high school, and what little I did know, I'm sure is quite terrible by now)

We use Barudan machines in our plants, and have had very good luck with them. If you're looking for a used machine, check out Barudan Refurbishing. They have good prices and good machines.
