Commercial Dough Mixer Question
« on: November 22, 2014, 09:57:12 PM »
The only commercial dough mixer I've worked with are Hobart Planetary mixers.  They run close to $30k for the 140qt capacity unit which is the one we need.  You can find them used for $8k-$10k pretty easily.
    My question is what are the major differences between this type of mixer and a spiral or fork mixer.  I can find a spiral or fork mixer for $8k-$10k brand new. 
Thanks

Tom Lehmann talks about some of the differences between a planetary mixer and a spiral mixer (but not a fork mixer) in a recent video at https://www.pmq.com/November-2014/PMQ-Live-Chat-with-Dough-Doctor-Tom-Lehmann/index.php .
