Strauch Drum Carder - The Mad Batt'r - Single Wide Chain Drive (DC-302): $855.00
Our customers requested a Strauch-quality drum carder that would produce those wonderful, outrageous "art batts" full of exciting fibers and textures.
We now offer the Strauch Model 302 series "Mad Batt'r" art drum carder as part of our regular product line. This carder has deeper pins (1/2" long) and coarser carding cloth (72 teeth per sq. in.) on the large drum to accommodate all the fun add-ins that make these art batts say "Spin me!"
Thick batts weighing more than 2 ounces can easily be made. The Brush Attachment makes it easier to control the type of art batt you are making.
Naturally, it also has the unique Slicker-Licker cloth on the small drum. As with all of our 200 Series carders, the Mad Batt'r has a 4:1 turning ratio. The three working tools (Batt picker, doffer brush, dabber brush), as well as a set of table clamps, are included with each carder
However, as of Jan. 1, 2016, the Mad Batt'r will be built on a 6" tall solid ash-wood frame (just like the Finest series). It easily allows for future upgrading to the motorized version. An added benefit is that the handle swings free of the table.
It is also available as a motorized model. If you choose the manual model, it can later be upgraded to a motorized carder.
