Having gone through 2 Pro-series KA's and getting a repair cost of $275 for the most recent, we looked elsewhere. The KAs were always noisy and sounded like they were working hard, despite seemingly adequate motor amperage. I make pizza dough by i kg. batches, 00 flour, and this shouldn't overwhelm a KA, but repeatedly did.
I spent a lot of time websearching. The counter-tops Hobarts were beautiful, but ridiculously priced. We bought a Globe SP5, paid $579 including free shipping and no tax, and have used it for 3 months with numerous batches of dough made. The unit is very functional looking, nearly silent, totally and completely satisfactory. We are very happy with it.
