How to make date paste?

Hard to say.  I guess try the hand blender for recipe testing, assuming you mean an egg-beater type thing not an immersion blender.  You're really just mashing things together, right?  Then think about making 100 or 1000 - a Robot Coupe will make a smooth puree but have much smaller capacity than a stand mixer that could handle more heavy "dough" at a similar price.

In the quantity you want to do (10kg) each day, I would suggest investing in a commercial-grade machine; you will burn out a home-use food processor within a few months and you'll have to spend more money to replace it.  perhaps you can find a gently-used Robot Coupe at a restaurant supply or auction.

Can you please advice on a model? Are you suggesting a Blixer coz I looked up on YouTube and couldn't any videos of people doing it? Or is it some other model.

Robot Coupe US has a website that will make suggestions for which model fits your needs based on  your answers/selections to their questions.  I think  it's possible for you to use a consumer model food processor but if you are going to make that much date paste on a daily basis, just realize the unit might not last as long as you think.  And you can, in the meantime, be saving up to buy the commercial model.

I sent an email to robot coupe and am waiting for their response. In the meantime I soaked the dates in oil and put it in my wet grinder to integrate it in chocolate spread and looks like I reached 20micron particle size. I had to run it for 80hours.
