As with all the other models in the ’44’ line of Singer machines, their first impressions always end up in the same vein; Similar on the outside and with small and hardly noticeable differences on the inside.
Does the same rule hold water when the Singer 4423 and 4432 are put against each other?
Both being heavy duty sewing machines, one can already grasp the straws and realize that you won’t really see a beginner opting for one of those.
Let’s find out what it is that justifies the change in numbers when it comes to their names.
Another question we’re excited to answer is whether or not the slightly higher price tag is in any way justified.
We’re speaking of the 4432, naturally.
4423 VS 4432 Details Comparison Table
|Auto Needle Threader||Yes||Yes|
|Buttonhole Styles||1 One-step||1 One-step|
|Amazon Reviews||Over 2,480||Over 800|
The main point which makes a comparison between the two even possible.
The 4423, as the moniker discloses, has 23 stitches available while the upgraded version, the 4432 has 32 stitches.
We quite liked the play on numbers the company made with their respective dubs for the machines.
The difference in stitches is not vast, with the Singer 4432 enjoying just a tad wider selection, having three more stretch stitches and six more decorative ones.
Regarding buttonholes, they both have only one which is a bit disappointing in our opinion but still valuable to note, nonetheless.
Since they are both so similar when paired with each other, we have to take a moment of your time to remind you why these two heavy-duty models stand out from the rest of the crowd.
First things first, the engine that does all the heavy lifting oftentimes gets the least credit. Find me a model that can go as fast as 1,100 stitches per minute.
I’ll let you in on a little secret; You’ll be hard-pressed to do so!
In the same matter, the automatic needle threader, bobbing system and the comfortable free arm make for an absolute blast of a sewing experience.
Last but not least, the adjustable foot pressure always makes me come back to the Singer ’44’ series. It’s something so unique and liberating to be able to just do things on your own accord.
We think that this should be the main strength of all heavy-duty units but sadly many manufacturers don’t give it the time of the day it deserves.
We have never seen two models embody so many similarities when set side by side. Even so, the features that set them apart are so minor in importance that they are basically negligible.
Both of these two units are pioneers in their respective, heavy-duty, league and should be treated as such.
You will not find better models for the price tags and that’s why they remain the consumer’s favorite till the bitter end!
