KITCHENAID MODEL K-45
1962 4.5 quart capacity model K45 was introduced. The most popular KitchenAid mixer ever, the K45 is still an important model in the line. It replaced the beloved Hercules like K-4B!
Citrus juicer -- Citrus Juicer is now white plastic
Pelican Vegetable slicer now has stainless steel discs
Rotary Vegetable slicer -- has stainless steel cone rather than cylinder cutting pieces
Food Grinder -- now has the squared food opening rather than the rounded opening
Sausage stuffers are white plastic now
Colander & sieve -- This is the style that fits in the top of the standard mixing bowl. This design is necessary on the tilt-head mixers (for obvious reasons) but eventually they started using the same design for the K5-A.

Fiberglas Ice cream maker 4 qt version for K-5A

2 qt fiberglass ice cream maker for K-45
Post-war versions of the attachment (that went with the K5-A, K4-B, 3C, 4C, and so on) lack the indicator and were first made with both wood buckets. If I recall correctly, the wood-bucket units were made in two sizes. At some point the wood bucket was replaced with the green fiberglass unit, which came with a reversible stand that allowed use on either of KA's mixer offerings (tilt head or bowl lift).
