Differences Between the Singer Heavy Duty 4411, 4423 and 4432 Models

Posted on Posted in Heavy Duty Machines, Singer

The Singer heavy duty sewing machine range is a popular choice for those who require a slightly more powerful machine, be it for upholstery projects or working with thicker materials such as leather or denim. Three different heavy duty models are available in the UK, the 4411, the 4423 and the 4432. You can find them on Amazon, or in Argos and John Lewis.

However is not always clear what the differences are between these models, and so we hope to clear things up with this post. The main differences between the three models are in:

  • the number of available stitches
  • the presence of additional features
  • pricing

All of these differences between the three Singer models are summarised in the table below.

You can also take a look at my detailed review of the 4411 model to get some insight into what these machines are capable of.

Now let’s take a closer look at the differences between them…

Stitches

These three Singer heavy duty models vary mainly in the range of stitches that they offer. The last two digits in the model number correspond to the number of stitches it has. We have summarised the stitches available with each of the three models below.

The 4432 model is clearly the winner here with 32 stitches, but if you are unlikely to use such a wide range of decorative stitches it may be more that you need.

Additional Features

All three models are very similar in terms of their underlying mechanics – they all have a 105 W motor and are capable of up to 1100 stitches per minute. However the 4423 and 4432 models differentiate themselves from the 4411 in the following ways:

  • The 4411 has a 4 step buttonhole, whereas the 4423 and 4432 have a 1 step automatic buttonhole.
  • The 4423 and 4432 models include an automatic needle threader whereas the 4411 does not.

Pricing

The 4411 and 4423 models can be purchased at Amazon.co.uk.

The 4423 model is also listed on the Argos website, and the 4432 model is listed on the John Lewis website.

I would recommend the 4411 if you aren’t too bothered about having the extra stitches and the 1 step buttonhole. You can always buy a needle threader tool separately – see my list of sewing machine accessories for some guidance.

If you fancy the extra stitches, there is really nothing much to differentiate the 4423 and the 4432. It’s worth keeping your eyes peeled for a deal, as prices change all the time!
