AK-III Industrial Tufting Machine


translation missing: en.products.item.price.price_per_unit_html

The AK-III is a high-pile electric and pneumatic tufting machine that creates both cut and loop shags in a range of lengths, simply by changing the tufting needle. Best for intermediate and advanced tufters, this is a superior machine requiring an air compressor (not included). See the AK-III in action here
