Welding bearing girdle for Hobart A200?

I have an OLD Hobart A200 mixer. It fell over backwards and cracked the cast metal bearing girdle. Is it possible to weld this back together? Is anyone sure if this is cast iron or steel?

I know this post is old, but hopefully someone doing a search for a similar problem will stumble across it and it will help them....Identifying the metal should be easy to do with fairly good accuracy. First, take a magnet to it. If its magnetic, then its some sort of ferrous metal, which is fine. If not, then its probably aluminum or stainless steel, both of which will have different welding procedures from ferrous metals. Then you need to determine if its cast or forged. By the sounds of it, you've done that part. Now we need to figure out if its cast iron or cast steel. Do a google search on doing a spark test on the metal, there are lots of good youtube vidoes that will show you exactly how to do it. If you have a tig welder, you can puddle a very small part and see if it hardens. If its cast iron, the bit you puddled will be hard as a ball bearing. You won't even be able to scar it with a metal file. If not, then its more than likely cast steel. If thats the case, weld away however you want. If its cast iron, there are issues to consider before you start. As a previously stated post said to heat it up cherry red, that is not always necessary and in a lot of cases it is not provided the part doesn't take a lot of pressure like a vise jaw would, for example. If you read this post and find your weldment problem to be cast iron, post back with your conditions and I will assist further.

Yes the cast can be welded(brazed). if you are able to weld this yourself, just remember before you can weld it, you have to heat it till it is cherry red then you can weld the piece. if your not qualified to weld it you can usually find a portable welding company to do this for you. hope this helps you please rate the solution...thanks

I can't get the main shaft out of an A200 Hobart Mixer to service the lower bearing. Any advice?

Honestly, get someone in that knows Hobart mixers. The a200 is an amazing machine, but you will need to strip the entire gearbox apart to get to the bearings. Take this from someone who works for Hobart :)

Hobart A200 Noise

After viewing and listening to your video, my first guess would be bad bearing(s). The sound varies with the speed of the agitator, so the noise is at the speed of the transmission shaft or planetary area. These mixers use very common standard bearings. As such, they are available very reasonably from sources OTHER than Hobart. You will need to take the transmission apart in order to find and solve the problem. Study the parts manual in detail. It seems complicated, but once you understand it, it is logical. I highly recommend that you get a really good understanding of how it works and goes together before you start taking it apart though.

I have oil coming from the front of a hobart a200 mixer,What to look for? and what kind of oil?

If you have oil leaking from the attachment hub, the transmission grease has liquified. The transmission will need to be opened so the old lubricant can be removed, by scooping it out. There aren't any seals in the attachment hub, just two torrington needle bearings. The helical gears thrust the pinion gear onto a thrust bearing in the hub to create a seal. The hub has a return hole in it's casting for excess lube to return internally. It's possible the return hole is restricted. On the other hand, if the machine has been filled with oil, it will probably leak like a siv.
The new lube should be 35 OZ of mobil XPH 222,
Hobart part number is 103881-47 for 32OZ.

Hobart A200

Yes A-200 are number 12 I would find a hobart grinder they will have a big H in the casting on the neck get one with a stainless pan and stomper to push product down the throat. If you wait on Ebay and put it on your watch list they do come along. look for no rust. Make sure it has the big H in the casting. the other after market ones seem to not last long like the metal wears on the worm and hub to fast. also you always know where to get a piece if you need it if its a Hobart. not so with the forign jobs.
