Age of a-200

Just bought a used Hobart a-200, and I am curious to know it's age. Is there a code in the serial number or something I can use to get a clue?

Thanks!

There is a two letter code that translates to the month and year. You would need to call Hobart to translate. 1-937-332-3000

There are hints to the age, first two digit of the S/N is the factory. "11" are the older ones, spec vs ml on plate, type of power switch, bowl gaurd....

Age of a Hobart Stand Mixer by Serial No.


the ML or spec number would be trackable from the resource site.
Enter the model number and check the date of the corresponding build number.

If it does not have a safety cage fitted, there are some areas of the countyr where it can not be used commercially, untill one is fitted. Depending on the model, that would be a thousand dollars or more.

Hobart A-200 mixer gets hot and weak. Motor housing gets too hot to keep your hand on it. Service tech told me the motors usually don't go out. What other problem could it be?


I'd say you're most likely overloading the mixer. This mixer, and others similar in size, are frequently overloaded by people making pizza dough. If you are making dough, keep in mind the A-200's capacity is 9 lb. of 40% A.R. pizza dough, mixed for 5 minutes maximum. If you need to mix longer, the batch must be cut down even smaller, but I don't even know if you're mixing dough.

Try running the mixer unloaded (i.e. nothing in the bowl) for ten minutes or more and see if it gets hot. If it still gets hot, the motor's start circuit (varies depending upon age of the A-200; Hobart used numerous motors in the A-200 over the years, incorporating different starting circuits) most likely has problems. If it doesn't get hot when operating unloaded, then you're probably overheating the mixer by overloading it.

Hobart A200 age and lubrication


No, do not use Shell or Chevron grease or oil.
It will damage the gears and the interior of the machine. You must use food grade grease.
If you use industrial heavy duty grease you might have trouble with the local Code Enforcement ( if this machine is used in a restaurant or bakery )
depending on your state's rules, laws.
Here is a website for the grease:

About the age, hmm.. sorry but no i don't know anything.

How to find the age of a Hobart N50


Hi Anne. Call your nearest Hobart parts place. The parts guys will be able to tell you the age and which plant it was manufactured in in the USA. Another source is the hobartservice.com website, look for discontinued products under the food machines group, then select mixers and browse until you find the file that dates machines. One thing to watch for when buying is oil leakage that appears to come from the bottom of the stand. This indicates that the transmission grease is partially separating the oil out of it and it's leaking out of the rear bearing and dripping down. If the leak seems excessive, pass on the purchase. This drip could also indicate excessive wear on the bearings. Also run the mixer in all speeds, if is sounds like a tank approaching, it probably needs a rebuild.

Hobart L800 Mixer Age & Bowl Question


The manufacter date is actually a two letter code on the data plate. But being the s/n is an "11", factory #11, it's old.

The key number for getting the right parts on a Hobart is the "ML" or "Spec" number. It is most always a five diget number.

As far as your actual problem -- I'm confused.

Hobart A-200 serial # ?


Hi. Your mixer was manufactured in 1967. If you plan on keeping it, take the outer cover off, gently remove the two metal dust caps with a small screwdriver and look into each opening with a good flashlight to determine the quality and amount of grease in the trans. case.

Ideally the grease should almost fill the space with no oil visible. If you need to look further, I suggest that you open up the transmission cover, to determine the condition of the grease that lubricates the transmission. If you find that oil is seperating from the grease. you would do well to remove all of the oil and old grease and replace it with either Shell Darina EP-2, or Chevron FM ALC EP-2 grease. It's a messy job, but it will add years of life to your mixer.

Check the planetary seal, remove, clean and regrease the planetary gearing. With a mixer of this age, you never know if it has ever been serviced since it's manufacture or not. The grease must totaly encapsulate the trans. gears. As the grease breaks down it's level lowers and it leaves some of the upper gears without lubrication, and will result in preventable wear.

Good luck! If you found this solution helpful, please rate it. ricardok45
