Product Details

The Hobart HS8N-1 is a heavy duty manual slicer that makes a smart addition to restaurants, delis, or cafes, saving time and efforts. Designed for superior performance and user safety, this manual slicer unit comes with a 13" CleanCut™ alloy blade knife that works more efficiently in comparison to other stainless steel or carbon blades. This blade can slice up to 1" thick pieces and comes with a knife and ring guard cover for maximum safety. This slicer comes with a top-mounted sharpener with borazon stone to sharpen the blade in as little as 5 seconds. An ergonomic handle on top makes slicing tasks quick and effortless. The manual slicer is designed with innovative interlocks for safe and efficient operation. Some of the slicer interlocks include home start interlock, close to stop interlock, carriage system interlock, and automatic shutoff interlock. In case of inactivity for more than 30 seconds, the automatic shutoff interlock also turns the knife off.

The Hobart manual slicer has an aluminized base with a brushed finish for durability and easy cleaning. The gauge plate and product tray have anodized aluminum construction and do not corrode or rust easily. To ensure easy cleaning, the spring kickstand below the slicer can be lifted and carriage system can be titled or removed. The ring guard and meat grip arm are also removable for proper cleaning and maintenance. This manual slicer uses 1/2 HP belt-driven motor with 430 rpm speed for maximum efficiency. In case the slicer is unplugged or power fails, it has to be restarted to resume the work. It comes with 6' cord and plug for installation and uses 120V, 60 Hz, single-phase electrical connection.
