Question about Hobart Food Mixers
If your N-50 is making a grinding noise there is a strong (almost certain) possibility that the cause is more than just needing more grease.
The sources of the noise are from the transmission case (front portion of the motor housing) and/or the planetary (where the blade attaches).
A search online should turn up the N-50 Service Manual.
With luck, it may be that the two adjustments specified in the Service Manual will do the trick
Three things come to mind regarding the noise:
1) If simply greasing the planetary does not do the trick, then
2) There are two adjustments to the transmission detailed in the Service Manual. And if that is not the cure
3) The transmission housing will need to be removed to find the source of the grinding. This is where the grease is truly encountered.

SOURCE: 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.
