How does that commercial kitchenaid line hold up to something like a Hobart N50? Inferior? superior?
No Kitchenaid has a transmission,,, the N50 has a 3 speed transmission,
The N50 speed 3 is like a Kitchenaid on it's highest speed setting, speed 2 reduces the speed of the machine by 1/2, speed 1 by another half,,,
each speed change doubles the power, speed 1 being 4 times the power of speed 3.
The N50 in speed 1 has (in my intrepretation) as much torque as a Kitchenaid with (325X4) a 1300 watt motor.
Kitchenaid does not make one that large, the 8 quart machine is listed at 500 watts.
I believe there is a 600 watt machine, but, that is a long way from 1300 watts...
Actually, the torque of the N50 may even be more than 2.5 times I have never seen anything slow down the N50,,,
