The Hobart HS6-1 has replaced Hobart 2612 and 3613 manual slicers. This model is a manual slicer with a removable 13" blade for cleaning. The new Hobart HS6-1 slicer takes some of the best features from the 2612 and 3613 which include the reliability of the 2000 series and the performance of the 3000 series. Some of the new features include comfort of an ergonomic handle and a larger knife so that you can slice larger products. The HS6-1 also adheres to the new NSF guidelines by having the ability to remove and clean all moving parts that come in contact with food thoroughly and safely. The Hobart HS6-1 manual slicer offers precision slicing with a 13" CleanCut® stainless steel knife and a Stellite alloy edge. Hobart's CleanCut® slicer knives will stay sharper up to three times longer and will not prematurely dull or pit. This coupled with machined grooves on the product tray and knife cover will produce consistent cuts, less shredding and smooth, even strokes. Providing you with unsurpassed slicing performance and product yield unlike any other manufacturer. The Hobart HS6-1 also features a no-volt release interlock, a tilting removable carriage system, spring kickstand and a rear mounted removable meat and vegetable grip arm. The Hobart HS6-1 is perfect for a medium volume deli with minimal peak times.
