I don't have a problem I just wanted to know the difference between the two products. I have the KSM 90 and nothing is wrong with it. I just wanted to know how much of a difference between the two. ...
Except for asthetics and whatever obvious trim such as handles on bowls, etc, there is NO PRACTICAL DIFFERENCE; both mixers are outstanding appliances.
There has always been ONGOING MODIFICATIONS in motor design, relating mostly to formation of the electromagnetic flux and other intangibles, you will find OLDER KSM90s may have a slightly higher degree of OVERBUILDING- such as COPPER plating flashed on the back end of the carbon brushes to improve effciency, reduce heat, and lower electricl resistance, another example is oil wick felts included with the rear bearing assembly to help lubrication on older models. In both cases its over-engineering and it costs money- Ive never been able to read difference between the two carbon brushes on a Watt meter in actual use, nor have I ever actually seen, in more than 30 years mostly as authorized warranty service center more than just one single WORN rear bearing (from a mixer in a science lab, not a kitchen) with or without the oil wick felt- thats out of several hundred thousand mixers!
Newer mixers lack other similar accoutrements which had proven to provide limited tangible benifit on a practcal level.
KitchenAid keeps knowledgeable staff available at their 800 phone line at customer service to go into this subject without the unnecessary technical depth I've given,, and they may yet recall my name after these many years -DeSantis (Im the [disabled] son, JD2, not the grandson)- from the Trenton/central NJ area.
