The AK-III is a pneumatic tufting machine that can create a range of short to long piles in both cut and loop by changing the tufting needle. Best for intermediate and advanced tufters, this machine is well-made and durable, but requires an air compressor to work properly (air compressor not included.)  


  • 9 needles in the following lengths: 20mm, 25mm, 30mm, 35mm, 40mm, 45mm, 50mm, 55mm, 60mm
  • A quick start guide, user manual, and video on how to change the needles and knife specific to this machine (automatically emailed upon purchase).
  • A 30 day warranty including parts and labor (to extend your warranty, check out our one-year service package) 

Note: The durable construction of this machine means it’s also quite a bit heavier than the AK-I and II machines. 


  • Adjustable pile lengths between 20 and 60 mm (.78" - 2.36") 
  • Weight: 4 lbs 13 oz (2.18 kgs) 
  • 110 volt 
  • Requires an air compressor, a standard air hose, and an air filter*

*We recommend California Air Tools 10020C-22060 Ultra Quiet air compressor if you're working in a small space. You'll also need a standard air hose and an air filter. Air hose compatibility will be slightly different if you’re outside of the U.S. Learn more about compressors on the Help page.

This machine uses an A/B plug. Most customers outside of the U.S. will need to purchase a plug adapter. If you’re unsure which plug is used in your country, check out this list. Adapters are easily purchasable online.
