Choose a New Mixer over a used forced action mixer

What to consider before choosing a used forced action mixer

Used forced action mixers may have been built to stand the test of time, but you cannot be sure how the mixer has been looked after previously.

It is important to try to check the mixer out for yourself – otherwise ask for images or a video.

It is important to take a close look at the general appearance of the machine, including:

  • The machine in action
  • The motor switch
  • The gear motor and the capacitors
  • The safety switch
  • The mixer drum
  • The mixer arms
  • The welds

Take a look at the checklist below for more information.

Checklist when choosing a used forced action mixer

Try to ensure that the machine can be turned on and remains on for a long period of time.

Do strange noises come from either the motor switch or the gear motor? Do the capacitors smell or have dents?

Does the mixer turn off when the grid lid is opened? If the mixer doesn’t switch off, can the safety switch be adjusted?

Is the machine dented on or in the drum? Does it hold material? Is the frame safe and strong?

Are the mixer arms worn down? Do they turn properly? Should the spring pins be changed?
