    As the tag states it's a Hobart go to their web sight with model # and see what you can find. Hobart is a commercial line of grinders.

    Like Warren said, Hobart.
    A really, really old looking Hobart.
    Not sure if I would use it, restore it, or put it on a shelf as a museum piece.

    But one heck of a score!

    Here's a link to Hobarts web site. In the upper right corner is a Phone Number, if you would like to chat with them.

    Interesting . Did a search and found some interesting reading on Hobart's History . It's possible that what you have is a base power plant to drive different attachments ? I see the ones that look like yours are listed as " mixer / chopper ." They only have a 5 digit number . Did not see any that were 220 volts , or made in Canada . See if you can find a 5 digit number on the plate , maybe at the bottom . I saw one that looked like yours , ( but was 110 volts ) that had a buffalo chopper on it , and a slicer attachment laying next to it . Listed as 1910 .
     
  6. I think it is easily over 500lbs needs one hell of a shelf , its definitely getting refurbished
