KitchenAid Question

So after 10 years, my trusty KitchenAid is finally making a death rattle, and I am reasonably certain that making struffoli this year is going to kill it, in much the same way it has been killing me to eat three pounds of them every year.

So here's my question - my old one was a tilt-head 4.5qt model, with a 300w motor. The new tilt head only steps up to 325w, not much more than the one I killed. To get a 425w model, I would have to go for the lift bowl. It seems like it might be a pain to try and add ingredients, or reach in and scrape the bowl if the head doesn't tilt out of the way.

Any one have any thoughts or comments on this?
