I recently bought three 14" bowl choppers (2 Hobart, 1 Fleetwood) from a school district. I have finished refurbishing the Fleetwood and am mostly done with one of the Hobarts. I plan to sell the Fleetwood and one of the Hobarts to pay for the one I keep.
I mostly wanted one for emulsified sausages and am hoping someone has some tips on using one or personal experiences to share. Aside from what I've read in a couple of the Marianski's books and their website I'm starting from scratch with using these critters.
Fleetwood FC14 D Bowl Cutter , fast and slow accessory drive hubs that I don't recognize, otherwise similar specs to the Hobart below.
The business end of the Fleetwood.
Hobart 84145, 120V, 1/2 hp, #12 hub, bowl rotates 22 RPM while knives turn 1725 RPM.
The third one is an older 220V single phase Hobart 84141 with #12 hub that I will likely have the bowl, cover, comb etc retinned for before selling it. I'll know more when I get a chance to tear it down and really clean it though. It was in storage for a long time in a dusty basement and the surfaces that feel rougher than I would like may just need a good cleaning.
Thanks and I hope you all have a great weekend.
