Great little grinder
I bought this on sale several years ago, figured it was inexpensive and didnt take up much room so it would be a good grinder to start with. It has worked flawlessly for many years doing 2-3 animals a season, but this last season was a good one and would really test it . I saved all my grind from the season to do at one time, between deer and hogs I ground 120 lbs Saturday, and reground about 50Lbs for sausage and burgers Sunday. I have read reviews that it is plastic, or cheaply made, my experience is that yes it is inexpensive, but seams to made pretty well, and has held up nicely to the work that I have thrown at it. I honestly figured it would last 2-3 years at which time I would upgrade it, I believe it is 10 years old now. I have the attachment that makes burgers, jerkey,and snack sticks , and it runs that fine as well. Only thing I do not like is the switch, but I have a footpedal switch to solve that issue. I would say that this little grinder has far met if not exceeded my expectations.
