Pros of the Brother 1034D Serger
It certainly lighter than other sergers in the market. Weighs only 8 pounds and measures 15.3 inches x 13.1 inches x 12.6 inches. Given the light weight and small size, you can easily move this serger from one location to another without any trouble.
Depending on the requirement of the fabric you can adjust the stitch width between 5 to 7 millimeter. It only takes small adjustment of left needle to change the stitch width.
Like Brother Designio Series DZ1234 Serger it also provides the speed of 1300 stitches per minute. It allows you to have your bigger projects done in short time.

Cons of Brother 1034D Serger
Although this is one of the best serger; however, there are some issues with it as well.
- The noise level may take a little getting used to.
- It doesn’t support coverlock stitch and chain stitch.(If this is what you are looking for then Brother 2340CV could be the better alternative.)
However, the aforementioned are certainly not a big deal especially with the results that the machine produces.
You will very much enjoy the serging process but keep in mind if you want to see successful results, don’t rush the process and always follow the numbers. You will be an expert in no time!
