The Juki DNU-1541S is a single-needle, straight stitch, walking foot industrial sewing machine. It has the added feature of a safety clutch mechanism that will automatically engage if there should be a sewing problem (thread in the hook, etc.) to prevent damage to the machine. Manufactured in Japan by Juki, a world leader in sewing quality and technology, this machine is perfect for sewing heavy weight fabrics. With walking foot technology, rectangular feed, and a higher needle stroke, heavier materials such as leather can be sewn with ease. This item is sold as a complete unit, which includes the machine head, table, stand, motor, sewing light, drawer, and all necessary components installed and ready to sew. ***Please be advised that this is industrial equipment. Minor blemishes and scratches on the table and legs may occur during the production process, and these do not indicate any defect or deficiency in the operation of the unit. ***Industrial clutch motors produce noise. ***Table color may vary depending on availability.

This is completely unacceptable in a commercial environment and killed our production. In the three months we owned it, it was in for professional service at least about once a week who always claimed it was "operator error" causing thread to jam. We knew this was untrue because we followed all instructions to the letter, including those from the dealer who serviced it. We ended up putting the machine on ebay and lost over $1000 between the resale depreciation and the many, many service calls. We went back to our old standyby Consew, which rarely ever gives us any trouble.
Several years later, I was talking with the owner of a industrial sewing machine dealership (a well known national company, not the local dealer I dealt with before) who specializes in this kind of thing and sells almost every make and model out there. He said they sell this model and they are always in for service due to the exact problem we had. I don't remember all the technical reasons he specified, but basically, there is something about the hook design in the Juki that makes them very prone to thread jam.
If you're buying this for sewing clothing with lightweight, weak thread, or some other light duty use like that, it may work. But if you're sewing industrial fabrics with heavy duty thread (we use 92 Kevlar, and 130 DaBond polyester), forget about it!
