The 1.3 hp rating for KA ‘Commercial’ 7 Quart seems to be stretching the hp rating just a wee; given that the power cord is a four foot length of 3 conductor 18 AWG SJT NTC cable, implying a max working load of perhaps 10 amps. However an honest 3/4 horsepower should be adequate for my purposes.
So far, the bowl height adjustment and bowl mounting mechanism are the only features that seem a bit rough.

I call mine "Lady" after a Clydsdale horse that was a favorite of mine. She was the lead horse for a stagecoach in a draft horse exhibition. She had the longest feathers (hair around the fetlocks [ankles]) of any of the horses in the six horse team.

Okay everyone. Jump in. What do you call your KA? The reason I named mine after the Clydesdale is because it is a real workhorse. We saw why Andy named his Scarface. What is the name of yours and the reason?
