Singer 5532 Vs 4452 - Similarities and Differences

First of all, let me clarify one point. Some people have a misperception that only Singer 5532 comes with a clear cover for top drop-in bobbin. This is not true. Singer 4452 also comes with clear cover for bobbin. The main purpose of the clear cover is to monitor the bobbin thread supply easily and both 5532 and 4452 have this feature.

Both machines come with extra powerful motor capable of delivering 1,100 stitches/min. This motor is a beast, trust me. This is one of the fastest sewing motor in the entry level category. 

Other common features include automatic needle threader, top drop-in bobbin with clear cover, stainless steel bed plate, snap-on presser feet, heavy duty metal frame, on-board storage, free arm, extra high presser foot lifter, adjustable presser foot pressure, 6mm stitch width, 3 needle positions, automatic reverse etc.

Differences

Feature wise, both 5532 and 4452 are identical. Then where is the difference? It is in the accessories you get. Singer 4452 comes with bonus accessories which include Even Feed / Walking Foot, Non-Stick Foot, Clearance Plate and Heavy Duty Needles – Size 16. 

The bonus accessories are in addition to the included accessories like All-Purpose Foot, Zipper Foot, Buttonhole Foot, Button Sewing Foot, Seam Ripper / Lint Brush, Quilting Guide, Needles, Bobbins (Class 15), Screwdriver, Auxiliary Spool Pin, Spool Pin Felt, Soft-Sided Dust Cover, User Manual, Foot Pedal etc. Included accessories are the same on both 5532 and 4452. Just that 4452 has some extra bonus package.

Editor comment

Both Singer 5532 and 4452 are excellent machines. They can sew super fast and the stitch quality is great. They can go through multiple layers of denim with ease. Since the difference comes down to accessories alone, you can easily decide whether you want the bonus accessories or not.
