Are you making things up again, Leolady? I never said anything about the DLX being commercial.

Thanks for the info. I was so preoccupied with the scant 7/16” square drive on KA accessories that I didn’t notice the taper of the accessories’ drive shaft tubes.

Sorry you misunderstood me.

I was referring to my litmus test of mixer durability.

If it is worthy of being a commercial mixer, it is durable enough for heavy duty home use without worry.

It's /was (De Longhi bought them out) a 1500 watt machine with a 7 quart bowl and a stainless flat beater. Don' know about the dough hook. Sorta looks like a Viking.

KA is not what it was years ago , my five quart is okay for small stuff ,but the meat grinder is a joke-- the shredder slicer got used just once -it isn't even usable in practice. I have a 12 quart Hobart - I really can do very small amounts well , plus five pounds of fresh whole wheat flour doesn't strain it . that's about 10 one pound + loaves. about 120 butter tarts at a time without getting messy. The meat grinder for it is truely well made and the machine is built to power it . you could buy it and never have to buy another , mine is over 20 years old . And by the way while running top speed you can expect to have a quiet conversation going on- You will want to holler over the KA at top screach-Gage

Sounds like a great machine. But living in a small house and not wanting to risk having to go on food stamps, I don't think a 12 quart Hobart is practical for me.

Bet you could find a great used one at a good price , many small bakeries and food services have to go for newer ones with safety shields and such-- Do you have KENWOOD or Bosch where you are ?? Also if your interests or lifsyle changes you will mostly recoup your purchase price , you make money when you buy not when you sell. Gage

Good used small Hobart mixers are a dime a dozen at used restaurant supply stores.

I could buy one in a heart beat [12qt] and not pay more than 200.00.
