I found a used Hobart 20 qt with mixer bowl and beaters in excellent condition for $1850. Do you think that's a good deal for used?
I bought one recently for my new shop and it costs me $850. It was a local restaurant supply business. Mine is also a 20 qt Hobart, probably 30 years old. I just used it a couple of days ago and it works great.
I bought mine used and have no idea how old it is. Paid $1000 cash for it and walked out the door. It has been over a year and it works great! I don't know how I ever lived without it! Best money I have ever spent!
I don't know what area you are in, but I feel like that's a little high.
Like SpudCake, mine came from a restaurant supply company, was used, (they said 25 years old, but they all look the same after about 10 years!!), and I paid $950.00
I bought mine as a spur of the moment purchase, no comparison shopping at a used restaurant supply store. I needed it, they had one, only one on the floor. I paid $1500. it's used, it's old, its works fine, but I think I paid too much. However, I love my Hobart and would never part with it. I also can't imagine how I made cakes without it. And at least it's a tax deductible biz expense.
How old is it? You can see on the "vin" number on the side of it as to when it was made. IMO, if it isn't pretty new, that is kind of high.
Mine is about 30 years old, came with 3 bowls and beater blade and it was $850. It is a workhorse, I don't know what I would do with out it.
