I just took place in an online auction for a Hobart 20qt Mixer complete with an equipment stand (didn't know that until the bidding was almost over, btw). The auction house had two 20qt on auction...I watched the first one to see how high the price went because I wanted the other mixer anyways since it came with it's guard and it looked better (the first one had nicks and scratches and some of the paint was worn off).

Well, the first auction went for $1050 which I thought was pretty dang good. The one I took place in went for $1300 (to me)! It looks like it has only the whisk from the picture, but it could very well have everything (it looks like there is something behind the whisk in the pic, but I'm not positive. Now I just need to arrange a time and a truck (and some strong men) to help me get this thing here.

So, did I get a good deal?!?! I sure hope so! During the auction little notes kept popping up like 'practically new' and 'stand included' which didn't appear in any of the other auctions I've been I'm excited! So, did I do good? thumbs_up.gif or not thumbsdown.gif ?

I've included the pic that was on the listing (Ebay Live Auctions).

It sure looks cool to me, but unfortunately I have no idea what one should/does cost.

Phew! That's good to hear! I saw brand-new ones listed on the internet for $4000 plus...and this one is of course an earlier model, but who cares, right? As long as it works...I'm all set! My DH asked why in the world I want another mixer when I already have two (5qt and a 7qt), but um, so I don't have to mix 3-4 batches of the same thing...I can get it all done at the SAME TIME!

I saw that auction! I looked for one locally to avoid paying shipping and found an Anvil 20 qt for $900! It's like Christmas in July!
