Hobart has expanded its continuous-feed food processor line to include the FP300i floor model, a maximum heavy-duty food processor designed to process up to 88 pounds of product per minute.

The new model comes complete with the base, a stacking feed cylinder and a manual pusher plate for increased versatility.

The large, full moon-sized cylinder allows for processing a variety of products and eliminates the need for pre-cutting, Hobart said in a news release. The manual pusher plate features an ergo-loop that provides a lever effect, reducing the need for manual force when processing large, hard products, such as root vegetables, cabbage and cheese. The 45-degree angle of the cylinder and the convenient height of the FP300i floor mount design make it easy for operators to load products with less fatigue.

Hobart offers an optional bulk feed hopper and cylinder set for purchase. The cylinder funnels product into the bulk feed hopper and is best for efficiently processing round products such as potatoes, onions and tomatoes. An optional four-tube feeder is available for loading long, narrow products like cucumbers, carrots and celery.


The FP300i food processor provides a plate speed of 500 rpms, the ideal speed for processing without bruising the product. Available cutting tools allow operators to slice, dice, shred, grate, crimp, julienne and more, and the unit includes an exclusive decoring screw that deflects product from the plate hub to ensure complete processing. A one-horsepower motor with planetary drive supports optimal performance.
