Food Service Equipment & Supplies/hobart meat grinder


Ihave a hobart meat grinder.model no.356071,troy ohio, half,amp-88,volt-115,classrga622cycles-60.just information on its age, worth, dad passed from cancer and i,m not sure what to do with it.

Very sorry to hear of your father's passing. Regarding the meat grinder, it is an old model no longer made. I can't tell you the age of the grinder since I don't work for Hobart. You might look up a local service agency (GCS is a national service agency) that specializes in Hobart repairs to get a better idea of its age.
I don't know what condition your grinder is in but even if it's in good condition it's probably not worth more than a couple hundred dollars. You might try listing it on eBay, Craigs List or an industry associated trade magazine, Turtle Soup.
Best of luck,
