Troy, OH – Commercial food equipment manufacturer Hobart is keeping up the tradition of giving away a custom-designed mixer at the International Pizza Expo in March.

During the show in Las Vegas, March 30 to April 2, Hobart will once again be giving away a custom-designed Legacy HL662 Pizza Mixer valued at $20,000 US.

This year’s custom design pays homage to the speed and power of the Legacy HL662 Pizza Mixer. The HL662 is a maximum heavy-duty 60-quart machine designed to deliver consistency for demanding dough production, Hobart said in a news release.  Hobart will unveil the one-of-a-kind mixer at booth 1845 on the first day of the expo.

In addition to a 2.7-horsepower motor and exclusive variable frequency drive technology that can handle the heaviest dough loads, the Legacy HL662 mixer features trademarked Shift-on-the-Fly and patented Soft Start technologies. Shift-on-the-Fly helps improve productivity by allowing speed changes during operation, while the Soft Start reduces the chance of product splash-out when the mixer is turned on. It slowly transitions to a higher speed.
