The drums on the electric model are the same as on the Classic

Drumcarder. The 10" diameter and 12" wide drum has a carding cloth that is 5/8" deep. This carder is designed for the production person in mind.

The powerful 3/4 HP internal motor along with the convenient foot pedal leaves both hands free to feed the fibers into the carder. Having a consistent in feed speed will create more even batts with less effort.
The drumcarder stands on buffers and doesn't have to be clamped to a table. This carder is good for the spinner or felt maker who cards a lot of fibers and needs many batts produced efficiently. The motor has a thermal safety and the drums are covered with a transparent plastic protection cover for extra safety while carding.
