looking at used meat slicers and need help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking at a couple of Berkel and Hobarts (also one USBerkel - is there a difference?) 10-12 inches for $300-500.  Anyone have any suggestions on what to look for?  I like the idea of having a built-in sharpener, but how often and how do you sharpen one that doesn't have a built-in?  Motor size?  Model to look for or models to avoid.  Any info on used slicers would be helpful.

 

I would like to make a buy that will basically last me a long time with one outlay of cash.

Jax, morning..... The first thing I would do is, using the model number, check availability of parts...  If it's obsolete, I wouldn't buy it...  Any commercial slicer will last you 2 lifetimes once it has been gone through and worn parts replaced....

Definitely get one with a built in sharpener... I have had my globe for over 2 yrs and have had to sharpen the blade a few times. It makes a big difference in the way they slice. They need to be razor sharp..............................http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/105689/my-new-slicer-updated-pics
