Anyone work with one? I've got a line on a really clean one for $250 and wondering if it's worth it. These seem to be smaller units that don't have a lot of frills compared to some of the other Hobart machines. Not dead set on that particular one so if there is a better sub $250 slicer I'm all ears. Thanks!

You can't really go wrong with a Hobart. If it is for home use then even the most basic one that make should be great. If it was going to be used every day once a day then it would be OK. If it was used multiple times a day for multiple products then get a different one.

I don't think you will find a better slicer in that price range. I can't say for sure that I have used that model, but have used several Hobart, Globe, Berkel, and a few other brands. I will say stay away from other brands for commercial applications, for home well cared for they would do.

If it was me I would get it. YMMV

Thanks for the info. I know Hobart is pretty much tops. The only thing I worry about is the 410 being and extremely old model. The gal is sending me more pictures today. She states the blade, bearings and motor are all in excellent condition and it runs perfect and is really quiet. That all sounds good to me. Any other points I should be concerned about?

You might want to call a Hobart rep (or the company) and ask what it would cost to repair if "something" were needing to be fixed.

If memory serves me right, they are pretty spendy to have repaired.

That being said, they are "top of the line"....when in good working order.

In researching that slicer I found where one was given to the Smithsonian.

Parts are available for it.

It looks like a very well built slicer and if its in good shape will proably outlast the modern slicers. IMO

I am not familiar with the 410 but have seen the 512 and plan on getting one the only issue is the 512 is 2 times the 410 you said you had on the line. there closer to $450 and up to 1500 .. yup a hell of a span tbut have seen both .
there built like a tank and are GEAR driven not belt ?

shouold last you a hell of a long time . will she give you a week wanrranty? is so turn it on for a day and slice the hell out of something.

The main thing I would worry about is that the blade runs true - no woble - otherwise you get uneven slices.
