Hobart slicer geeks... I have questions

holy chow Sep 27, 2007 09:39 AM

Yes, I called you Hobart slicer folks geeks and I'm one of you. I just picked up a Hobart model 411, 1/4 hp, 1725 rpm and want some info on it and how to care and feed it. I know she is an oldie and she runs real strong, it even looks as if she had a motor rework/update. Does anyone have any info, places to get parts etc on these old Hobarts?

    Please email me information from the dataplate of your Hobart 411 slicer, i.e. ML number, serial number or spec number. I have an instruction/parts manual for your use. My email is techservicepubs@hobartservice.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.

        i believe you can order the replacement parts from the hobart company for any of their equipment lines, no matter how old your piece is--one of the reasons restaurants prefer this more expensive brand. ebay might also be a good resource.

          This is so. Parts are NOT cheap. Clean the rails and use a nice light mineral oil...never salad oil which gets gummy. Many models include a little sharpening wheel behind the blade. I've worked in a lot of Kitchens and the classic Hobart slicer hasn't changed much in 30 years and a lot of the 30 yr old ones are still in service.
