As you can see, there is a nice variety of stitch options on offer. MO-735 comes with color coded lay-in threading system, which is pretty much the standard nowadays (no surprises there). The snap-on type presser feet is very easy to change. The extra high presser foot lifter provides extra clearance required by bulky fabrics (it can be lifted up to 5mm). The presser foot pressure is also adjustable by a dial. You can adjust it to handle almost any type of fabric.

On the safety front, Juki MO-735 has a micro safety switch that prevents the machine from sewing, if the covers are open. There is a built-in seam guide to take guesswork out of seam allowances. A dial is provided for adjusting lower knife cutting width. The upper knife arm can be moved out of the way to allow more room for sewing. This is done by pressing a button. This will be handy while doing coverstitch or when you don't want to trim the fabric edge.

You can switch to rolled hem with the flip of a switch, as easy as that. Differential feed adjustment ensure consistent feeding (0.7 : 2.0 Ratio). The stitch length is max 4mm, standard 2.5mm, left needle 7mm/ Right, needle 5mm. Overlocking width is chainstitch 10mm, rolled hem 2mm, coverhem 2.5-5mm respectively. The machine weighs above 19 lbs, so it is slightly on the heavier side. The motor is of the same power as most competitors, delivering 1500rpm.

Ease of Use

The build quality of Juki MO-735 is very good. You expect that from a professional serger don't you. You won't feel disappointed in that aspect. The stitch quality is very good and they are consistent. We really like the sound of its motor, it has a solid feel to it.
