A Hobart mixer can easily be the most versatile tool in any kitchen, but it’s important when purchasing attachments and accessories to ensure that they are compatible with your model of mixer. In this guide, Chris Tavano explains the differences in accessories between the two lines of Hobart mixers.
Hi. I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply.
In today’s episode, I’m going to help you distinguish the differences in attachments for 2 different Hobart mixers.
First thing’s first, there are n fact 2 different kinds of models of Hobart mixers out there. We have the standard version and then also in the past recent few years, they’ve come out with a new HL Legacy Series.
Big difference between those is they take different kinds of parts in the way they attach to the mixer itself.
First we’re going to take a look at these bowls. Right here on my left, your right, we have the standard Hobart mixer bowl.
The biggest thing the difference between that and this Legacy version here on my right your left, is the difference between these brackets. Also if you noticed on this HL Legacy version, we’ve got an angled bracket and that’s to help secure it in place when it snaps in.
But if you noticed on that bracket, the actual model number of this bowl, HL20, it’s printed on that bracket. That’s a great way to identify the Legacy series.
The standard version does not have that printed on their brackets.
Just notice these differentiations between the 2 and that’s your first place to identify do you have the standard version or the HL Legacy series.
In addition to the Legacy series having the model number imprinted on the bracket of the bowl. Take a look at this old version. You’ll notice that both brackets are the same on both sides. However, when you look at the Legacy HL version, you’ll notice that the brackets are not the same on both sides and that is due to their new locking mechanisms over here.
Next, I’m going to help you distinguish between the different kinds of attachments for those same mixers.
You’ll notice on this particular attachment of the standard version or Hobart mixers, we see the recess inside the pedal, so that way you slide it on and twist it into place, so that way the locking pin falls in that set area.
This is the newer version HL Legacy series. The big thing to differentiate here is the spring loaded locking set pin. What you’re going to do is you’re going to slide this, the whole attachment on the shaft and then you release the spring, so that way it slides into place and it’s going to click right into the whole that it locks into.
Also you’ll notice that the HL series and model number embossed directly on the attachments themselves.
Also keep in mind when ordering a Hobart replacement parts, that you take note of what volume capacity you’re bowl is because that’s going to be very critical to how it fits your machine as well.
Also just be sure to give our sales a call if you have any questions as they are great in handling these issues with you.
