What is a low pile machine?
A low pile tufting machine is defined as one that can only tuft up to .75" (18mm). The only use electricity and do not need compressed air (pneumatic). If you're looking for longer/higher pile you'll need to upgrade to our high pile machines.
We sell three machines that create low piles. The AK-I (cut pile), AK-II (loop pile), and ZQ-II (cut and loop).
The ZQ-II can create both loops and cut pile by switching out parts on the head. Generally I don't recommend this machine for beginners because it's twice as heavy as the AK-I and AK-II and switching out the head isn't easy.
