Gear-Driven Transmission

This mixer's powerful 2 1/2 hp, 3 phase motor, and 3-speed gear-driven transmission will get the job done without the risk of drive system slip that can happen with belt driven models. It offers easy shifting with consistent mixing speeds regardless of the thickness of the product in the bowl. The dough hook is best suited for a low RPM of 137, the flat beater for a medium RPM of 265, and the wire whisk for a high RPM of 550. Additionally, its automatic safety overload switch will cut the power in the event of overdraw to protect your unit from damage. For added safety, this mixer will not operate when the bowl guard is opened, when the bowl is lowered, or if the bowl is removed.

Ample Attachments

In addition to the 60 qt. stainless steel bowl, this mixer comes with a variety of other accessories, including a type 304 stainless steel wire whip for mixing liquids and soft foods, a cast aluminum flat beater for mixing dry ingredients, and a cast aluminum dough hook for kneading bread or pizza dough on low speed. All of these attachments can be easily installed by raising them onto the mixing axle and simply rotating them clockwise on the shaft until they lock into place.

Bowl Lift

This model has a power bowl lift with easy up/down buttons to eliminate the need to crank the bowl into place using a manual lift. However, a manual lift is available as well for convenience.

Bowl Truck

A bowl truck on (4) 3 1/2" diameter casters is included for easy transportation of the bowl from mixing station to prep area within your kitchen.

Bowl Guard

The stainless steel bowl guard prevents clothing, utensils, or your employees' hands from coming in contact with the agitator when the mixer is in use.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Does the hp (horsepower) rating of this mixer reflect the output to the mixer bowl?
Our motor hp reference is meant to indicate the horsepower rating of the motor itself and not the mixer's horsepower output to the mixer bowl.
Can I use this standard-duty mixer to make pizza dough?
This standard-duty mixer can be used to make the occasional small batch of pizza dough, however, it should function on low speed to prevent burning out the motor. For larger, more frequent batches of pizza dough, check out our selection of spiral dough mixers!
Why is there grease leaking out of my mixer?
The leaking is caused by grease breaking down inside the gear box. The grease can be replaced in the gear box to fix this issue. It’s recommended this is done by a qualified service technician.

Commercial Mixers

Considering the purchase of a commercial mixer for your business? Check out this short video to find out about different types of commercial mixers and what features work well for different applications.

When you need to mix anything from dough to cake batters to mashed potatoes, Avantco planetary mixers make the job easy!  

This line of mixers includes stand and floor models, and come in a variety of sizes ranging from 10 to 60 quarts. With a gear-driven transmission, stainless steel mixing bowl, and a powerful industry-leading motor ranging from 3/4 to 2 1/2 horsepower, these mixers are built for long lasting commercial use.   

Each model features three speeds and comes with a spiral hook, flat beater, and a wire whip. The low speed is great for using the spiral hook to knead thick doughs, while the medium speed is ideal for using the flat beater to create your favorite batters. And finally, the high speed is great for using the wire whip to create thinner recipes such as egg whites.  

These mixers have several safety features to prevent unwanted accidents in your busy kitchen. For instance, the mixer will not operate if the bowl is removed, lowered, or if the safety guard is opened.  

The 20 quart mixers also have a number 12 hub to make this a versatile food prep machine. A meat grinder attachment or a slicer / shredder / grater attachment are available for purchase, allowing you to transform your machine into a mixer, continuous feed food processor, and a meat grinder all in one.

A commercial mixer is a critical part of many foodservice businesses, especially bakeries. That’s why we’ve laid out our commercial mixers according to the major factors that most impact their performance. The first consideration is the type of mixer that you want. Planetary mixers are the most common and versatile type. They mix ingredients together in batter or dough with whisks, beaters, or hooks, for high volume jobs. Spiral mixers are great for specializing in dough and with other mixtures that have a thick texture, making them great for bread and pretzel bakeries. Last, vertical cutter mixers can be used like a giant blender for everything from salad prep to dough preparation but it gives your baked goods a different consistency than dough prepared in other mixers. Each of these mixer types is also divided into standard, medium, and heavy duty applications. Standard duty mixers give you the power needed to create foods in smaller batches. Medium duty models are good for larger quantities of food and keep up with demand. And heavy duty units are the best in terms of strength, reliability, durability, and power for bakeries and pizzerias. Every commercial mixer also comes with a different transmission. Belt driven units use a simple strap system, similar to an engine belt, to turn the agitator inside the mixing bowl which makes them easier to maintain and repair. Direct drive mixers let you change speeds with the simple push of a button, and gear driven mixers utilize an intricate inner assembly of gears and cogs to prevent slips and stutters. Finally , variable speed mixers are made specifically to deliver torque and power for light duty use. Mixers are also available with different size bowls, from 5 – 220 quarts to accommodate the quantity of ingredients that you want to mix together. Depending on the size, you can use a smaller unit on the countertop or a work table, while a larger product is best used on the floor. You can also find commercial mixers with different speed options to operate quickly or slowly, and each commercial mixer comes with an internal motor that ranges from ½ to 7 hp. Best of all, you can easily find dozens of models that are NSF Certified so you can be sure the unit you buy is easy to clean and sanitize.

    1 out of 1 found this review helpful
    Decided to go with this new Avantco mixer instead of buying a used hobart 60qt mixer to save some money. If I could re-do my actions I probably would of gone with the used Hobart mixer. I was having problems with the mixer not working, the warranty team gave me a new mixer which works good but it is probably a matter of time before this one goes out too. Spend the extra money and get yourself a good named brand mixer like Hobart.

    I brought 3 Avantco 60 Qt mixers. First they all came with problems, I had to hire some guys to fix them, they were wired wrong and it was spinning in the wrong direction. Second, after about 1 year of use, they all stop working!! The parts in the machine are all worn-out, and it takes time and money to fix them. Save some headache just buy Hobart mixer, in the long run Hobart is cheaper!

    Since buying this mixer, I have also purchased a number of the attachments which has helped to eliminate other individual tools. I love this mixer and have come to depend on it for a number of jobs - especially mixing and kneading bread dough. This function alone save me a lot of time and physical exertion. I highly recommend this mixer for heavy jobs as well as those for the additional accessories.
