Hobart N50 versus A120 - real world capacities?
OK - so Ihave the option of picking up a used Hobart N50 G (older model) or a used 12 quart A120. I currently own and enjoy a DLX2000, but want to try planetary, and have a bit of a collector's mentality - can't help it!
After searching for "N50" and pretty much reading every post on TFL, I'm curious as to your real world experiences with an N50 in terms of capacity. I'd rather have "more than I need now" so I can expand operations if need be. I usually do 1-2kg batches of bread doughs including 100% wholemeal (but not wholegrain or rye - yet).
I also do 1-2 kg of 60% hydration pizza dough and around 1-1.5kg batches of stiff bagel dough, using high gluten flour.
According to Hobart themselves (https://my.hobartcorp.com/resourcecenter/ProductDocumentation/F-40180.pdf ), the N50 can't do bread doughs at all! While I suspect they are being a little modest in this respect, I am wondering whether the larger, 1/2 hp motor of the A120 might not be the better bet.
