Choose the Best Tufting Gun with Tuftingshop

At Tuftingshop, we offer the newest and highest quality tufting guns on the market. Our comprehensive comparison provides a quick overview of popular tufting guns, detailing their cut/loop capabilities, pile height range, weight, and recommended experience level.

Choosing the Right Tufting Gun for You

We recommend the AK-I for beginners due to its simple design and a pile height range of 7-18mm. It can also be set to loop by deactivating the scissor mechanism, adding versatility. The AK-II is perfect for those focused on loop pile carpets, as it creates super tight loops that are incomparable to those produced by deactivating the scissor mechanism on other models. The AK-II is known for producing the most beautiful loops.

The AK Duo, also known as the AK Pro, offers versatility with both cut and loop capabilities. However, it's a relatively new model with less proven technology and requires a bit more maintenance. The AK Duo High 4 and AK Duo High 3 models specialize in high piles (3cm and 4cm) and are not adjustable.

The AK-V is a modern, quiet machine similar to the AK-I but with advanced features like a brushless motor that reduces noise by 60% and a speed display with precision light. It can also be set to loop by deactivating the scissor mechanism. For those needing a stronger motor for very thick rugs, the ZQ-II is ideal, though it's not recommended for beginners or regular tufting jobs due to its weight and complexity.
