I am looking to invest in my first industrial serger/overlock machine but not sure where to start. I have been using a Janome 1204d for 4 years and have completely killed it. I have also gone through 3 other sergers so I need something heavy duty. Any suggestions or reviews?

I have Pegasus 4 thread industrial overlocker. Once you try one of these babies you'll wish you had bought them years ago. Reliable, predictable, beautiful machines

I use one at work, and find them to be better than home machines like Lena Merrin. Two drawback are that it needs a table and that needs space. The other thing is that it does the one thing and no others such as rolled hem or coverstitch. that said it is very rare I need those and the durability is a maybe what you need. I use a Brother but we also have a Juki both are equally useful.
