The Megado is Louët's top-of-the-range dobby loom available with either 16 or 32 shafts and with a choice of weaving width of 70 cm, 110 cm or 130 cm (27 5/8“, 43 1/4” and 51 1/4“). You can also choose between a mechanical or electronic control for the dobby.  Use the drop down menus above to view the price for the different variants of the Louët Megado Floor Loom.
The Megado is made of lacquered ash hardwood and the most complex castle section is pre-assembled. Included are: a large shelf, built-in raddle, a stainless steel reed, Texsolv heddles, lease and tie-up sticks and sixteen warp sticks.
The mechanical dobby is a peg bar program system. The numbered holes in the program bars correspond with shafts of the loom. If you want a shaft to be raised, you place a peg in the corresponding hole of the program bar. The series of program bars can be as long as you like; however, if the number of program bars becomes very large, you may want to consider an electronic dobby. The electronic dobby will give you almost unlimited shaft combinations using a computer and software from Fiberworks PCW, Patternland, Weavemaker, Weave It, WeavePoint or Pro Weave, which all work with the Louët electronic interface.

Easy treadling

The Megado loom features a countermarch shed. This is accomplished by raising the back beam at the same time as the shafts are being raised. The beam movement also compensates for changes in warp tension as the shed is made. An innovative construction ensures the action of the well balanced pedal to be very light in operation. This main pedal and also the optional weaving bench are adjustable in height to accommodate the weaver’s physical requirements. 

As with the Delta, Spring and Octado looms, the Megado has the Louët sprung breast beam, a unique warp tension control system, which allows the weaver to set and check the warp tension each time the warp is advanced.

These innovative design features give the Megado, along with the Octado, an indisputable advantage over other competitive products. No other multi-shaft loom treadles as light and creates as large a shed, even with a very high tension on the warp.

Please note that the bench shown in the product photo is sold separately.
