When you hear heavy duty, the first thing that comes to mind is a full metal heavy and obtrusive machine. Apparently, this is not always the case. Check out the Singer 44S Review and find out what I mean.
Singer 44S Review: General Specifications
The Singer 44S is a bit small for a heavy duty machine. It is only 15.5″ x 6.25″ x 12.25″ in diameters. It weighs 18.15 lbs. The color is off-white, unlike most heavy-duty models from Singer which are mostly colored some sort of pale military green or khaki. The main interior frame of the machine is made of heavy-duty metal.
Singer 44S Review: Features & Functions
• Aside from the heavy duty metal frame, this baby also comes with a motor that is 60% stronger than a standard sewing machine. Sewing speed can be as fast as 1100 stitches per minute.
• The Singer 44S features 23 built-in stitches. These consists of 6 basic, 6 stretch, 10 decoratives, and one buttonhole. Both the stitch length and width can be adjusted. Maximum width of decorative stitches is 6mm.
• It allows for extra high presser foot lifting to accommodate several layers of fabrics. Presser foot pressure can be adjusted but thread tension is automatic. There is also an automatic needle threader and it runs on a top loading bobbin system. A stainless steel bedplate is installed for a smoother fabric feed.
• Presser feet are easy to replace. The needle can be set into 3 varying positions. LED lights are placed to keep the sewing area well lit.

Singer 44S Review: Known Issues
There is a very minimal issue about this machine. Only a couple of complaints about the machine just quitting after very few light uses. I personally think that these are factory defects and doesn’t apply to all the machines.
