Hobart K-415 15 quart mixer
I picked up a Hopbart 15 quart mixer. This would be from 1920's......
I have pulled it apart and made it pretty again. It is 325 pounds of mixer.
Would anyone know how much flour it could handle?
I am assuming that it would be less than the twenty quart. It did not come with a bowl, so i tried a 20 quart and it fits perfect. Just not as much room up top when the bowl is lifted. It is a tank of a machine that even though mistreated it has not seen much use overall. There is No play in the gears and everything is tight.
Also would anyone have 1/2 dozen paddles kicking around to fit it? the twenty quart paddle is bit long, i am using a 12 quart dough hook on it and it seems to work no problem.
I phoned Hobart about this machine and was told that they never made a 15 quart machine. I told them that seeing that i had one sitting in my kitchen, It apperaed that they did.
