Blendtec TB-631-25 Specifications
The Blendtec TB-631-25 Total Blender Classic WildSide in a classic red finish is the very top of the line in terms of power, features and versatility. With it’s 1,560 watt motor that can generate a staggering 3 horsepower, this thing can power most small treadmills, and is easily the most powerful series of residential blenders you can buy. In addition, with its direct drive and smooth ball bearing system, this powerplant can turn the unit’s long 4-inch stainless steel blades at a reported 320 miles per hour! As a result, you can bet it will make short work of any tough, hard, frozen or fibrous foods you care to work on.
In addition to industry leading power and blending speed, the Total Blender is also adorned with sophisticated controls, calculated to achieve perfect and consistent results, time after time. Specifically, with it’s Smart-Touch technology, once any of the 6 pre-programmed modes are selected, this blender will speed up and slow down automatically to ensure you get the same perfect blend, no matter how many times or what mixing load is put on the machine. This level of automation, in addition to greater power, is a big distinction between the Blendtec versus the Vitamix in our view.
Finally, the TB-631-25 Total Blender Classic comes with a massive and virtually indestructible BPA free Tritan square mixing jar that can hold roughly 90 fluid ounces. With this kind of capacity, you can treat yourself – and all of your friends/family – to store-quality smoothies and whatever else you care to make.
Each Blendtec TB-631-25 Total Blender Classic WildSide comes with an industry-leading 7-year limited warranty.
