Being an engineer, Otto Strauch designed these drum carders to be truly unique in the marketplace and built with the same high standards as the hand crank models. The Strauch 405 Finest is a "high tech" machine having both infinitely variable speed AND reversibility features.

The "infinitely variable speed" feature (not just two or three speed settings) is a God-sent when working with fine fibers like alpaca, merino and cashmere.

Strauch drum carders use very high quality, durable, electronically controlled motors that are made in the USA! All these machines have been extensively beta tested by some "heavy duty" fiber artists and they all have raved about the design, workmanship and durability.


There are switches on the circuit board to chose between 110v (domestic) and 230v (international). Naturally, carders shipped to US customers are pre-set to 110v. strauch double wide drum carder detail
