SOURCE: what kind of paint should I use on my Hobart 20

Alot of people use house paint,but if you get a good primer and then an automobile spray paint such as 3m it works well.

SOURCE: reccomendations on how to move a Hobart H600 Mixer

I would use the 4 wheel platform dollies and ratcheting tie-down straps to secure it to the dollies.
I have used these to move pianos and other larger objects, but make sure that you secure the object to the dolly and get the best one with the biggest wheels that you can find. The bigger the wheel the easier the roll. Not sure how big your doorways are, but if you can use 2 or 3 dollies, that’s what I would recommend. Just make sure that you secure the load with ratcheting straps not just rope.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

SOURCE: My mother needs a replacement bowl for a Model 4C Hobart Mixer

Hi.

The Hobart/Kitchenaid model 4C Stand Mixer was produced between 1961 and 1977.

This unit is now a vintage piece chased by collector. Parts dealers do not sell parts anymore for such an old model.

The parts must be purchased on the second hand and vintage market, best source is Ebay. Put 4c mixer or kitchenaid 4c to find parts.

The bowl is easy to find, it is part 4162158, regular retail price for replacement is $44. buy the glass one on Ebay, that will be the original one mounted on first models.

Here Ebay list.


Vintage KitchenAid 4c Glass Mixing Bowl Excel Cond!

VINTAGE KITCHENAID 4C MIXER WIRE WHISK ONLY

KitchenAid Mixer md 4C Complete with Bowl White

KITCHENAID MIXER 4.5QT S.S. BOWL FTIS MODEL 4C 4162158


-------------------

Here also a forum where you can contact more Kitchenaid vintage appliances owners or collectors.

-----------------

The dough tool is not even easy to find on Ebay. Try contacting Kitchenaid and see if they can give you a compatible part.
If they have the original one (unlikely) , then do not be surprised if part price is over $30.

If you find a 4c with tools for spares on Ebay , buy it, and resell the parts you do not need. The whole mixer with bowl and one tool is worth over $50.

The original owners manual can also be purchased from Kitchenaid/hobart

Regards.

How much oil does my H 600 Mixer hold ( Hobart in the Transmission


1 gallon of 90w Gear Oil -- can be purchased from AUTOZONE! Make sure when you have completely drained from the large drain screw from under the mixer toward the back of where the attachments go on but not part of the part that spins around known as the Beater shaft! Once you have drained out all of the oil -- from the top where the front screw attaches the head or cap of the mixer -- add the oil there and make sure you are watching the sight glass to see when it is at the HALF way mark in other words when the oil level (TIP: Use a bright led flashlight to shine directly at this sight glass to view level) reaches to the midway mark of the oval sight glass, THEN STOP! It is full! Carefully start mixer on 1st gear and then 2nd so on and so forth to make sure everything is getting relubricated correctly and slowly -- don't just go setting it on 3rd or 4th speeds as you want to baby the mixer when you just put in new gear oil

Hope that helps!

What kind of oil should I use in my Hobart 800 floor mixer? jdnwilk@juno.com


Hello Jdnwilk,

In a Hobart L800 you use 140 weight gear oil in the head and 90 weight gear oil in the planetary. You should start with about 160 ounces and check the sight glass and fill until in the middle of the site glass after oil settles.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Old hobart s-30 mixer oil


man you got an oldie but goodie mixer!im a hobart service tech for 8 years and have only seen about two dozen,unfortuantly parts for these units are exhuasted.as for the sight glass they do become cloudy over time and you cant determine the oil level.use a heavy gear case oil.the only way of telling is to drain the oil or if the unit is loud you should probably cange the oil.
