Is the weight of the machine an issue I should care about?
Not in our estimation. Our best-selling long-arm heads weigh from 45 to 68 pounds. Although there are machines on the market that weigh less than ours, we consider our machines the proper weight to give the operator the stability needed when the machine is moved to the widest point on the carriage -- without having to use an awkwardly designed track system in an effort to provide more stability.
With incomparably smooth Gammill wheel and track system, an operator can guide a Gammill machine with only two fingers.
Finally, there are very few occasions when the head would need to be removed from the stand.
