Viking Mixer - Is this normal?!
A couple weeks ago I bought a reconditioned Viking 7 qt. mixer as an upgrade to my 4.5 qt. KitchenAid ultra-power. Lots more capacity and power! I've made two batches of pizza dough (30 oz water, 20 oz flour, yeast & salt).
I'm concerned with the noise and "jumpy" motion of the dough-hook. They guy I bought it from (McNichols Electric) says this is just a normal function of the electronic transmission and that I should turn up the speed to give it more power. Even running empty the Viking sounds a lot different than the KA, so if this is normal I'll just get used to it.
If anyone with experience with this mixer can weigh in I'd appreciate it!
