Stratos XL Woodturning Lathe. This is the monster of the KS Drechselbedarf range. This is one serious lathe, weighing in at a massive 320kg.

The Stratos XL is driven by a 230v 3 phase motor delivering 2.2kw 3 horse power. This will turn the biggest piece of wood that you can find. The power is fully controllable via the magnetic movable speed control box and the three pulley system. The low speed pulley giving more torque deliverers a spindle speed from 60rpm to 1200rpm. The middle pulley runs the spindle  between 100 and 2200 rpm and lastly the third pulley delivers speeds from 150rpm to 3700rpm.

This woodturning lathe will handle spindles up to 750mm (29 1/2 inches) without an extension bed. Or you can add the 500mm Stratos XL Short Bed Extension giving you a spindle turning length of 1250mm (49 inches). But that’s not all, if you feel you need even more length there’s the Stratos XL Short Long Extension with it’s own leg stand which is 1400mm so you would be able to turn spindles up to 2150mm (84 1/2 inches), that’s over 2 meters (7 feet!!!). Good luck lifting a piece of timber this size onto your lathe.

Over the bed you will be able to turn bowl blanks up to 560mm (22 inches) with the Stratos XL’s massive 280mm (11 inch) centre height. But if that’s not large enough you can mount an extension bed and then you’ll be able to turn bowl blanks up to a metre! Yes that right, 1000mm (39 inches) over three foot in diameter. The extension bed gives you a 500mm centre height. This is truly no small lathe!

If you’re looking for one lathe that can tackle almost anything then the Stratos XL woodturning lathe is the lathe for your workshop.
