I have a co-worker that has a KA Hobart K45SS she wants to get rid of but has no idea what would be a fair price. I was contemplating buying it for my 23 YO daughter. It is in excellent condition with attachments.
My daughter is mostly interested in using it for cup cakes, cookies, cakes, etc. That doesn't mean she will never do an occasional loaf of bread, pizza crust, or rolls. Would I be better off passing even if this is truly in the excellent condition she is touting? Also, are parts available for future repairs?
What should I be looking for when I check it out? I have never considered buying a used mixer before but I have read they were better made when owned by Hobart. Thanks. Terry R
