Difference between Adler 205 370 and 205 374

Recommended Posts

Hi. I just picked up an Adler 205-374 and can’t find much info on them. I do however see lots of info on the 370. Can anyone tell me what exactly are the differences? 

 

Thanks.

The -374 has a smooth feed dog, like the Cowboy and Cobra 441 clone machines. The -370 has teeth on the feed dog, like the stock Juki 441.

Actually, the 205-374 preceded  the 205-370.  Adler came out with the 205-74 in 1985 when they introduced the machine.  They made a lot of changes in the first 6 months.  The new models were called 205-374.  Adding the 3 to the last part of the model number meant it was walking foot with alternating pressers.  When Durkopp bought Adler in the 1990's, the model number was changed to 205-370.  In essence, all these machines are the same.

Thank you shoepatcher. That’s exactly what I was looking for. 

 

Wiz, thank you too. I actually haven’t had a chance to thoroughly go through it yet. I’ll check out the feed dogs.

I'm investigating the parts books now;

Part pdf Adler 205-370

Part pdf Adler 205-374

They have so many parts variations!
