Abstract A warp knitting machine has across its working breadth in its working area a plurality of knitting tools and an adjacent fabric pull-off arrangement. A pair of gripping breadth holders between the working area and the fabric pull-off are located at both edges of a fabric path. Each of the gripping breadth holders have at least one driven wheel with a plurality of circumferential needles. The wheel is driven through a drive axis that is substantially parallel to the working breadth of the machine. The wheel is mounted to rotate about a wheel axis that is inclined at an inclination angle to the drive axis.
