  • Chain-Off Thread Cutter: A JUKI Original, the chain-off thread can be cut manually by pressing the scissors button or using the foot switch. Automatic cutting is also possible and you can set the chain-off thread length.
  • Micro-Lifter: With the micro-lifter, you can sew with the presser foot lifted up to 2.5mm. This extra spacing makes handling those bulky projects easier. Trying to finish the edge of a heavy winter coat or set elastic into a fleece waist band? Micro-lift is just what you need.
  • Thread Delivery Adjustment Knob: The MO-3000QVP sews various stitches from 4 thread overcasting, 3 thread narrow and rolled hem by turning the stitch selector knob. With the automatic thread supply system, adjusting “tension” is a thing of the past. The joy and efficiency of serging is greatly increased.
  • LCD: The LCD screen shows the selected stitch pattern as selected by the stitch selection knob.
  • Easy Looper Threader: Easily thread the machine from the threading to the looper hole with the power of a strong whoosh of air sent from the electric motor allowing for fast threading of the upper and lower loopers.
  • Automatic Needle Threader: Quickly thread the right and left needles with the automatic needle threader.
  • Easy to Change Settings: The settings of the maximum sewing speed, automatic chain-off thread cutting length, color temperature of the LED lights, and the operation of the serger when operated with the foot switch can be changed with ease utilizing the LCD screen and operations buttons.
  • Foot Controller with Foot Switch Functions: With the ability to assign a function to the heel side of the foot controller, you can carry out half-stitch, low-speed stitch, or chain-off thread cutting by depressing the heel side of the foot controller.
  • Knee-Lifting Lever: The presser foot can be moved up and down without using your hands. The presser foot can be lifted to 6mm maximum to ensure easy placement and material removal.
