Can anyone tell me if the KH 881 is the same as that of KH 981 or KH991?

These are brother km models. I have a Pallie KH 881 machine without manuals. When i research it all ive seen is kh991. Just wondering if its one manual for the both if these models. Any clue?

The KH881 is not similar to KH891 (991 error?). The 891 does not need the rails the 881 needs to run the garter carriage. Both are punch card machines. The 891 is also a later model. There may also be differences in the carriages?

in fact the garter carriage rails are the only difference that I can see between the KH881 and KR891. The carriages are in fact identical, nothing different on them at all. Both are excellent machines.

How to use the knitlrader on both machines here
I got those links from here
It seems to be dedicated to Brother machines, I use Toyota machines so can't answer any questions on Brother machines. (in fact I'm new to machine knitting so probably can't answer many questions on Toyotas either!)
Hope the above links are of some use and work!
Good luck.

The KH891 is a newer version of the KH881. It came complete with built in rear garter carriage rail and side rails strengthened to take a garter carriage. With the KH881 it was necessary to use a garter carriage which came packaged with the rails to fit over the rear rail of machines which could take a garter carriage (only the KH860 and upwards). I have recently bought a KH891 which I am going to strip down and deep clean using The Answer Lady's videos on You Tube. Her videos are extremely informative and very useful. Just currently waiting for delivery of necessary cleaning/lubricating items.

the machines knit all the same stitch patterns and use the same accessories. Both have built in knit radars but the 891 as stated has the built in garter carriage rails. That is an important advantage if at some time you plan to buy a GC since with the 881 limits the knitters to the GC's first model the KG88. With the 891 or other 89#'s you'll be able to enjoy any of the later GCs later models with more advanced features. The Knitting carriages are the same for both machines however the later model KH892 added the punch lace technique setting to the K carriage, which you'd be able to identify by checking if the middle cam on the carriage is split, for 2 settings or a single setting. Also, there were machines manufactured by Knit King brand which are The Same as Brother. Their model numbers for this series for example would start with KK, mine is a 93.

I have a KH 881 machine that came with KH 891 carriage. Loved using it!
I lucked out an got a GC w/rails and had no problem using it. I did have it mounted on a full table not a metal stand.
I have an extra set of rails...somewhere!

Tricia N, I knitted on Toyota for about 30 years. they are brilliant machines. Had their simulnit long before Brother had a double bed colour changer to do likewise. Inherited a beautiful late model brother with all the bells and whistles including a garter carriage, so have swapped codes now.
