Thank you for your responses gentlemen!
A kind thank you Bob for documenting the #1 speed, I couldn't find the info anywhere.
Although it is not all that appealing to the eye, function over form is present in these machines I feel. Seems like a viable alternative for making a large batch of dough without splurging on a 10-12qt spiral/planetary mixer or something along those lines.
Now all I need is for it to stop snowing so I can fire up the oven again.
