I sent in a question a few days ago and you requested the entire model #. The above is the only model number on the Stainless band that goes around the mixer. I'm looking for new brushes for the motor. I've taken the entire mixer apart in the past few days to clean it and install a new power cord and there is no other number on the mixer. The name plate says the manufacturer is The Hobart Mfg. co. in Troy Ohio. My wifes newer mixer says KitchenAid Division, but the one I'm trying to get brushes for was my mother-in-laws and I know it's at least 20 yrs old. You may have to go back to the Hobart model numbers as I think this was made by them before KitchenAid purchased them. The brushes currently in the machine are worn down to the spring so they are not long for this world.
