Motorized CARDERS

In response to our customers, Strauch developed a motorized series of drum carders. Available in both single and double wide models, these machines are truly unique in the marketplace and are built with the same high standards as the hand crank models. They have both infinitely variable speed AND reversibility features. Our motorized drum carders use very high quality, durable, electronically controlled motors that are made in the USA!
