Question about Hobart Food Mixers
SOURCE: year manufactored
If you call your nearest Hobart Parts place they can tell you. If they refuse this simple request, log on to www.hobartservice.com and look in the discontinued products menu, select Food Machines then Mixers and sift through the files until you find the documentation for serial numbers/dates. The lists are not complete and stop in the late 1980's. If you're lucky, you can find out which plant manufactured it, as the first two digits of the serial number indicate where it was built. The serial numbers are not in code, so it's relatively easy to get a date if you do the math. While you're there, download the manuals for parts and operation. You won't find the service manuals..."Top Secret"! Good Luck! Ricardok45.

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

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:
