Big Bite Dual Gear Stuffer - 10lbs.
I just love this stuffer. Does exactly what it is suppose to do. You can really crank out the sausage on this machine.
10 lb Sausage Stuffer
I was previously using the 5 lb stuffer which worked fine except for the nylon gears slipping every so often and the frequent refilling. My new stuffer, the 10 lb two speed vertical stuffer, is much better, there is no slipping and it seems to stuff the casings better than the 5 lb. I think that may be due to stainless steel stuffing tubes rather than plastic. Since I normally make 10 lb batches of sausage, my new stuffer is much more efficient. Overall the l0 lb stuffer out performs my old 5 lb stuffer by 100%.
Great Design, Well Made
I have been using a stuffer from Cabelas for a good 6-8 years and finally got tired of the meat blowing by the seal when stuffing beef stick into 21mm casings. I started researching and found this unti, ordered it and it works perfectly. Every issue with the Cabelas unit has been fixed with this unit. No blow by, no meat left in the bottom of the stuffer. Easy loading, easy cleanup. I am very satisfied, will be selling the old unit!
10lb ultimate stuffer
Seamed to be a good unit until I noticed while cleaning that the bottom casting has began to separate from the tank. This is allowing the meat paste to blow out at the crack. I showed it to my son who is a red sealed fab/fitter. He explained to me how it was made and that one piece was cast metal and that it was poorly made or poorly prepared for the way it was welded. I purposely purchased this unit because it had all metal parts thinking it would be more durable than it has turned out to be. I'm hoping that my son can repair the tank for me. It's very disappointing to me to have purchased something that has a single simple use and it can't even stand up to it's intended use. Basically just another piece of junk.
LEM 10 lb stuffer
Product is made in China. The only place it's marked is on the bottom of the box in small print. 4 Stuffing tubes but from 1" to 1-1/2" it's a big gap - a 1-1/4" ( us made ) would be nice. Stuffer is not made entirely of stainless , handle , same hardware , main push road , gears are made of plain steel and caromed. For the price I payed, at least give me all stainless... Base has no rubber feet/pad.
Stuffer works great easy to crank. Do not need to clamp down to a table when stuffing larger casings. Smaller casings you will want to clamp down or have a person hold and crank for you. Easy to clean as all of it comes apart except the canister has a folded ring at the top that can get bacteria or meat particles in it. I would give it five stars except I wish that ring would be welded shut or opened a little more so it could get washed.
This is the second season that we have used this stuffer. I and my hunting buddy's are all very pleased with the quality and ease of use with this unit. I highly recommend it to anyone that does a lot of burger and sausage!
Easy Cleanup! Positive lock-up and ease of Tilt loading of fully loaded sausage chamber onto frame is another plus. Absolute control of the push. The gearing is about perfect. This stuffer is SOLID. Not Cheap, but, you MORE than you paid for. Great Stuffer
