Does anyone know which KA mixers have adjustable bowl height? My non-tilt-head K5A does not. Do all tilt-head models have it?
Tilt the mixer up, look at the joint where it connects to the stand under the "belly" of the mixer. You should see a small silver screw. Dialing it out will raise the head of the mixer, dialing it in will lower it.
Use Google, plenty of info on this...
There is not a bowl height adjustment screw for the Kitchen aid K5-A.....

I have a bowl lift KitchenAid PRO 500 Series and a tilt-head KitchenAid K45SS Classic.
Here are YouTube videos showing how to adjust the bowl height on most models:

I was playing around with dough hooks and had an idea for a modification I would like to try. I thought I was going to have to get a new mixer to try my idea but probably won't have to now. I had settled on the K45SS.
