The Hollymatic Model 180A Mixer/Grinder provides three critical characteristics in one machine: high speed production, superior mixing capabilities, and an easy to clean design. All of these features add up to a machine that produces a superior grind of meat with little or no risk of cross species contamination. Featuring a 225 pound hopper with a counter-balanced safety interlocked lid, Hollymatic's 180A provides the best in high-speed ground meat production. A stainless steel "Figure 8" mixing paddle blends fat to lean faster and easier. A minimum exposed feed screw prevents temperature rise resulting in an evenly blended mixture that looks better longer. Easy to clean design features in this Mixer/Grinder include a hopper that tilts for easy cleaning and one-tool disassembly of the mixing paddle, grinding head, and feed screw for sanitizing purposes.
