A belt-driven 6.5" drum carder, perfect for the handspinner who does not card large amounts. Carder has MDF frame with oak grain and maple cross-members. Small drum is adjustable and sports "slicker-licker" cloth.

This unit is equipped with the #05 (128 psi) fine carding cloth to handle fine, medium and coarse fibers on the large drum and our unique "Slicker-Licker" cloth on the small drum. Designed to handle ALL fibers.including Merino, Llama, Alpaca, Cashmere blend, dog hair and other exotics.

Complete with Knuckle-Saver-Batt-Picker, doffer brush, dabber brush and table clamp.

The Petite is an excellent choice for a mid-sized carder with full sized features. The Petite is slightly smaller, with 6¾" wide drums instead of the 8¼" wide drums on the singlewide chain drives. The carder produces a batt approximately 6½" wide x 22" long. The Petite also has a 4:1 drum ratio.

Completely assembled with brush attachment.

Note: this model cannot be motorized because it is a light duty machine and not constructed to withstand the stresses imparted by a motor.

Lifetime Guarantee

All Strauch drum carders have a lifetime guarantee. Labor is always free.


In order to keep the carder compact, the frames are very close to the drum ends. Fiber can get into those tight spaces but the design of the carder allows for quick and easy dismantling for cleaning.
