Rossco,
great buying.
Now you only need a dough hook and pizzas gallore eh?
My mixer came without a dough hook so I made 2 different ones but really only use one of them, the spiral one.
Should be relatively easy to make if you have a lathe and an oxy set (to bend the stainless esily) and finally a buff to polish the heat stain off

Cheers.

Neill.

Nice machine you've got Neill!!

I am hoping that I will be able to get a dough hook - maybe 2, plus paddle tomorrow. The guy I got mine from wanted to keep the hook and paddle (can't blame him at the price) but as a last resort I will loan one for a day then see if my engineering friend can duplicate it.

Did a very brief clean up and test run when I got home this evening. The 3 speeds are great but I will probably only use the slowest for dough. It is quite powerful with a 3/4 HP motor. The 20 qrt/Litre bowl (takes 3 Kg dough) looks quite big so I should be able to make my standard 12 x 260 - 270 gram pizzas with no problem. Nice not to have to do 3 x 1 kg in the KA.

Pic attached - just running out to drop off the casing which will be repaired tomorrow...

A Hobart clone! Good buy. It's good that it's still in production so you can get the dough hook, although it may be interchangeable with the Hobart hook.

I want one!

I tried 2Kg in the KA600 Pro a couple of days ago making Focaccia for a school event, and it made an awful noise and smell -- and I ended up hand kneading it to finish. It just ins't made for that volume.

Next year.

James,
there was a genuine used Hobart here 'down under' on ebay last week, a bare unit 20 litre capacity with no bowl or beater/hook and went for Aus$51.
I did think about buying it and onselling it but I have enough on my plate at present.
I was going to post it but thought it would cause problems for the members trying to acquire the accessories.
Will let you know when another comes up!

Neill

Update on this one ...

I phoned the Australian agent this morning and was told a price of $285 each (without postage) for a beater and a dough hook. What a shock that was!!! It's madness!!!!!

So thanks for the tip dmun - I will definitely be chasing the Hobart option up right away.

Just as a matter of interest - do attachments like hooks cost around the $300 mark? I realise that this is a $3,000 machine, but just can't justify spending the price of a KA on attachments for what I want to use it for.

Any other suggestions to get this machine flying would be greatly appreciated.

Rossco

Rossco,
I think that you will find the Hobart more expensive!!!!!!!!!!
They are not cheap, double anything else around! That is why I made my own.

Bought 1 beater and 1 dough hook (Hobart 20 QT - clones?) brand new on eBay for $142 (AUD) delivered to the door!!!

Should work OK, but if not will get a friend to mod them for me.
