The model number you have given me is NOT a tilt head model .the bowl is raised and lowered to and from the mixer head.

But that model does NOT tilt

If you have any questions just reply back to me.

the instruction book that came with it says it is a tilt head.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
no I will figure it out thanks for nothing
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 6 months ago.

but it is Not if you in fact gave me the model number from right off the unit itself!

Did you get the number right off the bottom of the mixer?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 6 months ago.

So it now looks as if you have had two experts tell you that the model number your giving is NOT a tilt head unit ,but you still do not want to believe either of us!!

maybe you thought you were purchasing a tilt head unit but you did not!!
