Sewquiet/workhorse vs FamilySew

Recommended Posts

In other words, brushless vs brushed. 

I see the FS being recommended here often, but why? Is it just tradition (it just works and always has) or is it really a better performer? I'm unclear what the pros and cons between the two motors are. Can the brushless go slower with more torque, or vice versa? More control? 

 

Price and warranty aside, why is one better than the other? 

 

Thanks

Brushless motors are more efficient than brushed motors, but not sure how that translates to real world sewing differences. 

 

I have 2 FS 550 motor, and I have no complaints. It will sew slowly, or faster, and has never given me any trouble. One on my consew206 and one on my cowboy 4500
