Hobart 60 Qt Price?
« on: September 02, 2012, 10:33:10 PM »
A restaurant near me went belly-up and they have a mixer for sale.  This Hobart 60 qt is only 7 months old according to the owner.  It comes with a cheese grater, meat grinder, bowl, dough hook, paddle and whisk.  He is firm at $4500.

What do some of you veterans think?

Go to ebay and look at the completed auctions and see what they are selling for.

The great thing about pizzerias and restaurants that have gone out of business is that all their equipment is worth about 10% of what the same piece of equipment would cost at a used equipment dealer. This guy has a lot of equipment he no longer wants or needs. Unless he's willing to hold on to all his equipment for a long time, he's gonna have to sell it all for a lot less than he wants to get for it.

Offer him $1,000.

I would definitely try to work him down on that price, although those things new look like they are extremely expensive. A lot more than even $4500.
More is better..... and too much is just right.

Very true. If you can get it for even half that amount you'll have a great deal. The shop I am at has had an old H-600 for almost 30 years and we make about 600lbs of dough a week in it and still going strong. Not to mention grating cheese as well. You can expect it to last a lifetime, literally.
Good luck!
