Buying a used 30qt Hobart Mixer

I'm looking at getting a 30qt Hobart mixer. I found one on Cragslist here - pics look good; it was manufactured in '83 (which, I guess, is still fine for a Hobart).

I'm planning on driving over an hour on Wednesday to look at it before committing - do you guys have anything in particular I should look for? Other than the obvious, such as giving it a good grab and look for "play" (or more exactly the lack tereof), and to run it in the different speeds?

Does anybody know where I could get a Manual for a 29-year-old mixer?

Thanks in advance,

Stephan

Find the phone number for onesharpstore.com on the web.  Call them and ask.  They've been very helpful to me.  You might also ask them their prices for such a used machine.

Stephan,

Not long ago I bought a 30 qt. Hobart mixer (1979 model) and found the manual online.  It is a pdf that I can send to you if you would like me to.
