ALMFC12 MEAT & FOOD CHOPPER
Please read the following instructions carefully before assembling the Meat & Food Chopper. The instruction contain vital information concerning inspection, safe
operation, cleaning and repair of the unit.
The Univex Meat & Food Chopper is inspected at the factory, however, the user should examine the unit and compare the parts received with the list on page 2. Any
damage should be reported to the carrier immediately, and any shortage of parts to Univex Corporation.
Before attempting to mount the Meat & Food Chopper to the power source equipment for processing, be sure all equipment is located to save the operator steps and that
sufficient clearance is provided all around for safety and ease of operation.
THE UNIVEX MEAT & FOOD CHOPPER IS SUPPLIED WITH A FEED PAN (ILLUS. NO. 2) AND A FEED STOMPER (ILLUS. NO. 1). PRODUCT TO BE
PROCESSED SHOULD ALWAYS BE PRESENTED TO THE HOUSING ENTRANCE BY WAY OF THE PAN AND COMPRESSED WITH THE STOMPER.
NEVER ATTEMPT TO FEED PRODUCT WITH YOUR FINGERS OR USE ANY UTENSIL OTHER THEN THE STOMPER TO COMPRESS PRODUCT.
NEVER PUT FINGERS OR OBJECTS INTO PLATE HOLES.
TO AVOID ACCIDENTAL START UPS, DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICITY TO THE POWER SOURCE EQUIPMENT BEFORE MOUNTING OR
DISMOUNTING THE MEAT & FOOD CHOPPER.
ALL POWER SOURCE EQUIPMENT IS PROVIDED WITH A THUMB SCREW ON THE POWER TAKE OFF HOUSING. MAKE SURE THIS THUMB SCREW
IS FIRMLY SNUGGED BEFORE PLACING THE MEAT & FOOD CHOPPER UNDER POWER.
ALWAYS REMOVE MEAT & FOOD CHOPPER FROM POWER SOURCE BEFORE CLEANING. NEVER ATTEMPT TO WASHER OR RINSE A MEAT &
FOOD CHOPPER WITH A HOSE IF THE MEAT AND FOOD CHOPPER IS MOUNTED TO POWER SOURCE EQUIPMENT. HOSING A MOUNTED MEAT &
FOOD CHOPPER INVITES ELECTRIC SHOCK.
ASSEMBLY, LUBRICATION. AND PRODUCT PREPARATION INSTRUCTION
ASSEMBLY AND LUBRICATION
Before assembling the Meat & Food Chopper using the diagram on page 2, wash all components thoroughly according to cleaning instructions below. Lubricate the drive
shaft  and fiber washer  with a light coat of sterile petroleum jelly. Do not lubricate with cooking oil; it becomes gummy. Lubricate the knife  and plate
with a light coat of beef fat.
When you assemble the Meat & Food Chopper, make sure:
The knife is inserted with the flat side out
That the plate is inserted so the guide slot is fitted over the lock pin .
That the hand wheel  is only snugged. Too much pressure will damage the plate and knife. Adjusting the hand wheel will not change the consistency
of the product. Consistency is determined by the plate you use.
Do not run the Meat & Food Chopper unless it is processing! The knife and plate are easily ruined by dry running.
Slice meat into strips, not chunks, which will easily slip down the throat of the feed pan .
MOUNTING DISCONNECT ELECTRICITY TO POWER SOURCE EQUIPMENT FIRST.
To mount the Meat & Food Chopper, simply lift the unit, less pan  and stomper [I], and slide the drive shaft  into the power take off unit of the power source
equipment. Make sure there is a firm fit between the drive shaft and the mating power take off adaptor provided with the power source equipment. If the Meat & Food
Chopper is a Hobart no. 1000551, make sure the hub locating pin  is completely seated in the corresponding locating hole on the face of the power take off hub. Firmly
snug the thumb screw on the power take off hub. Fit the pan  to the housing  and reconnect the electricity. The unit is now ready to process.
Start the power source equipment and feed product to the worm by way of the pan with the stomper. If the power source equipment is a food mixing machine, adjust
speed from "1" to whatever speed produces best results. Again, never run the Meat & Food Chopper unless it is processing.
