What would you say the key differences are between the 430 and the

440? I currently own the 730e so believe me, I'm pretty happy but

would like to purchase a second machine as well. I'm looking at both

the 430 and the 440 and understand that I do not need all the extras

on the 440E because I already have it on my 730. However, I want to

have two really good working Bernina's in my quilting room and

especially want to have ONE really good quilting machine. Right now my

730e is having the bobbin sensor adjusted and I feel naked! "yikes"

and my projects are piling up! My dealer says that I can use the BSR

and module from my 730e on the 430 but do you think it would create a

lot of wear and tear on both module and BSR if I use it on both

machines? Any suggestions?

Abby, I have the 440 and the 730. Ibought the 440 with the embroidery unit, before the 730, 640 and 630 modelswere out. Had I known I would be buying the 730 as well, Id havepurchased the 430 without the embroidery unit and BSR foot. I bought my 730without the embroidery unit and just use the one from my 440 with it.

I think youd be very happy with the430 and save yourself a bundle, and still have a great setup!CJ Haveyou Tinkled today? Lifeon Wheels

Thanks CJ, I certainly appreciate your advice! I think it's great that wecan use the same Bernina module and BSR on different machine! Isn't thatgreat!

Yes its wonderful, if one machinehas to go in for service, you can still use the other with the same embroideryor BSR foot. Ive never even taken the BSR foot that came with my730 out of its case. I figure if I ever wear out the one that camewith my 440, Ive got a back up J. Of course Id have rather not bought both J. On the other hand, once I embroidered onthe 730, Ive never put the module back on the 440. But I muchprefer using my 440 for piecing and quilting. You will enjoy having thepair, whichever you choose. A 5mm and a 9mm make a great team!CJ Haveyou Tinkled today? Lifeon Wheels

These are the very same machines on the inside. The 440 comes with

the BSR and the 430 does not, but it can be added. Also, the 430 has

more stitch designs than the 430. That's pretty much the only

difference between the 2 machines.

I believe that another difference is that the 440 also includes the

walking foot while the 430 does not. Again, you can purchase a walking

foot for the model 430, just as you can purchase the BSR foot for the

model 430.

As far as I know, Bernina's walking foot lists at about $100, and the

BSR foot lists at about $1000.

When we did the cost analysis a couple of years ago, the difference in

price basically covered the extra feet and the extra stitches were a

freebie.

Sorry. I knew about the walking foot, but had forgotten it. You are correct. Thanks
