Italian-made Famag spiral mixers are world renowned for strength, quality, and outstanding baking results. Now they’re available in the U.S. for the first time, with industrial-duty motors designed specifically for U.S. voltage. As Famag's exclusive importer, Pleasant Hill Grain is proud to offer these high performance mixers!
Engineered expressly for ideal dough-mixing and kneading results, Famag spiral mixers feature a spiral agitator that remains stationary while the bowl rotates, bringing the dough to the stainless steel dough hook with each revolution. This action is exceptionally thorough and uniform, while avoiding both overworking and overheating of the dough.
Thanks to the spiral hook’s action, mixtures that overtax other designs—such as pizza or bagel dough—are handled easily, quickly and efficiently in the Famag spiral dough mixer. Doughs of all kinds, from heavy to high-hydration artisan doughs, come out smooth, silky and perfectly developed.
“I've been buying from Pleasant Hill Grain for several years. Extremely efficient process. Never disappointed.”

Famag mixers feature heavy duty chain overhead drive, with a high torque dual-belt final drive. FAG sealed industrial ball bearings are used for exceptionally long life. Construction is robust throughout, as attested to by the mixer’s substantial 265 lb. weight. Epoxy powder coating over a steel cabinet protects the handsome appearance of your Famag mixer.
Famag's IM-40 mixes and kneads up to 88.2 lbs. (40 kg) of dough at 60% hydration (or more at a higher hydration), but also handles batches as small as 9.9 lbs. (4.5 kg) equally as well. In terms of flour capacity, this is 55.1 lbs. down to 6.6 lbs. (25 kg down to 3 kg). Capacity of the stainless steel bowl is 43 quarts.
Heavier doughs can be mixed when the hydration level is higher than the 60% hydration formulas listed above.
The flour used for these capacity tests was 00 durum wheat flour.
