    My son has most of these Toystate caterpillar toys and most are somewhat disappointing in that they don’t really do what they’re supposed to do. I wrote a review for the excavator because the movement is too limited to actually be able to pick anything up and this is similar in that if you’re trying to bulldoze some sand or pebbles or whatever it doesn’t actually do a good job. At the lowest position, the blade is held above the ground so it can’t actually push much of anything. Its not as bad as the excavator though so 4 stars for appearance/movement, 2 stars for usability. 3 star weighted average.

    This a nice machine. I read the manual through once and was able to sew on it with confidence. I usually have trouble getting used to a new machine. It’s very quiet and sews like a dream. There are many features that most seamstress’ would love. My favorites are the automatic threader, the adjustable sewing speed (you can go real slow when working on something intricate), the auto thread cutter and the one touch reverse stitch. There are so many more features that I haven’t used yet. I’ve only found one thing I don’t like and that is the automatic presser foot lift and lower feature. There is a metal bar thing that goes under your sewing table and you use your knee to raise and lower the foot. It’s kind of hard to do although I’m sure it would get easier with practice. I just do it manually. This is a solid, well built machine. I was using a $700 Husqvarna. Boy did I get ripped off when I bought that one. This machine can do so much more and was almost half the price. I did a lot of research looking for a new machine. Consumer reports recommended a different “Project Runway” machine. I looked everywhere but couldn’t find one to purchase. I came across this machine and found it was similiar to the other but with more features. So I started reading reviews about it by people who purchased it. I could not find one bad review! That tells me all I need to know. If you’re considering this machine you can buy it with confidence. It is a fantastic sewing machine at a fantastic price!!!

    so far, quite an impressive machine, November 17, 2008
    By 
    third time mom (Naperville, IL United States) –

    I bought this machine a couple of weeks ago. It is an upgrade for me from a VERY basic Brother machine. I bought mine at a sewing machine store; actually cheaper than Amazon and I get their expertise/service.

    One major feature I was looking for in my new machine is speed control. I am teaching my daughter to sew; this machine can be set to sew very very ssssslllloooww. Great when trying to teach a nine year old. Threading is pretty simple; there is a nifty automatic needle threader. I’m using it but threading a machine needle was never a big deal for me. I also like the automatic needle up feature. On every machine I ever used previously, I had to turn the wheel when done sewing a line to raise the needle. This machine does it automatically.

    This Brother makes a very nice buttonhole; not as nice perhaps as a machine twice its price but still, just fine. It has this neat buttonhole foot in which you put your desired button in the back and it uses that button to automatically make the proper sized buttonhole. All in one step. This is WAY better than my old machine.

    The bobbin is a top-drop-in. No more bringing up the loop, just put in in and sew.

    One feature I’ve yet to use is a front stop/go control button. I guess that if you didn’t want to or couldn’t use a foot pedal you could use this button instead. I can see it being nice for buttonholes; you just position your fabric, push the “go” button, and it makes all the side of the buttonhole and stops automatically.

    This machine trys to make things oops-proof. If you’ve ever jambed your machine because you started sewing with the presser foot up, well, that can’t happen with this machine. If things aren’t “right”, it will give you an error beep.

    Another nice feature is that the machine automatically sets an “ideal” stitch length/width. You can overide it but for the most part, the defalt is perfect, especially with the decorative stitches.

    There are several decorative stiches; I haven’t quite figured out the best way to put them to use but that’s just my own lack of creativity.

    One last nice feature is a built-in foot holder. In front of the free-arm is a flip-down compartment that has molded, labeled spots for all your feet. It comes with a standard foot, zipper foot, blind hem stitch foot, decorative stitching foot, overlock foot, button attacher foot, and buttonhole foot. Also in the compartment is a molded space for a seam ripper and 4 bobbins (included). I’ve found it nice to have all these feet in one spot. I have a couple specialty feet from my old Brother machine and they fit and work just fine on my new one. An added plus.

    One note; this machine takes bobbins that are a bit thicker than older ones. Buy a bunch of new ones; they say old ones won’t work.

    All in all, I’m very happy. I’m glad I went with this model and would buy again.

    ***edited to add: my one gripe about this machine is that the built in lights are lacking. My old machine put out quite a lot of light; this one is MUCH dimmer.

    I did a lot of research before buying this machine. I have been using a 50 year old Kenmore for my home decor and clothing sewing/design. Therefore, I am used to working with what I have, and being creative with my machine’s capabilities. That being said, I decided it was time get a new, computerized machine that could do things that my ancient machine never dreamed of. My budget was $400 to $500. The PC-420 was so highly reviewed that I thought I couldn’t go wrong!

    Well, my machine arrived and right away it can’t do a reliable straight stitch. It’s not a tension issue, so I tried five sizes of needles and three brands of thread. I call Brother and get customer assistance. Still, the straight stiches are horrible- ugly skipped stiches and weird loops at intervals on the back of the fabric. Maybe a timing issue? So, I do an exchange for another machine. Amazon, by the way, has a wonderful return policy. So easy!

    Well, my second machine comes and the automatic needle threader breaks on the second use. The stitches are fine, though…

    Hmmm. Is this machine a good value if it isn’t reliable? Am I just really unlucky by getting two lemons in a row, or will I be using my 25 year warranty on a regular basis? I’m worried.

    A word about some of the stitches that come with the machine. Many of the decorative and utility stitches are very clean and tight, but some are pretty sloppy looking. Don’t be surprised if you find that you just choose not to use some of them.

    If this machine actually functioned properly, I’d give it five stars for value: the number of features it comes with is insane for the price. I wish I could rate it higher.

    *UPDATE*: Well, I’ve now had this machine for a while since my original review. The automatic needle threader somehow fixed itself (so I didn’t need to do a 2nd return), but on occasion the threader still “jams” for no reason. Again, each time fixing itself spontaneously… Also, the bobbin carrier sometimes freaks out on me and wads up a tangled mass of thread under the needle. Obviously, that’s a problem, especially with light fabrics! Not something that happens very often, but often enough to mention it. Additionally, I will say that the feed dogs do need help with heavy fabrics or multiple layers, such as hemming jeans.
    Overall, I am satisfied with my purchase, given the price point, and honestly I have friends who have more expensive machines, and they complain about them too…
