  1. I am considering the 8900 for my Birthday present from my husband. I get to pick what I want. I want it to last. Was going for the 7700, but heard of problems with the bobbin case. The dealer quoted 3995.00 for the 8900. The trouble is that there are only 2 dealers within miles that sell the 8900. The one closet to me I do not like. I bought my juki from her. After the sale she was not friendly at all (the owner). The lady that sold me my juki was fine. They also do not have a repair person there regularly. The one further away quoted the price, he may go down on price. He has a full time repairman and a large store. Thanks,

    Hi Peg! Yes, I traded my 7700 for the 8900. I loved all the features of my 7700, large throat, Accufeed foot. It was one of the first models of 7700 and did heavy duty for me. But I started having issues with it in the bobbin/ tension area last summer, and then the motherboard went out. My dealer had some demo 8900 machines on sale and gave me a very generous trade in on my 7700, so I went for it. I like the new features if the 8900, pop off needle plate, new design accufeed foot, but basically it is the same. I guess the 8200 is practically the same for less money, but it is slower and there are a few features that are missing from what the 8900 offers. They wouldn't be deal breakers for me, but I didn't even look at that machine. What kind of prices is your dealer offering? Mine offered it for $2999 and he gave me $1400 as a trade. For a broken machine, I was thrilled! This is the 10th machine I've bought from him in the last 22 years.
