big bite number 32
ground about 150 lbs of sausage this weekend and done a great job. there is only 2 things I would change is the pan size is too small it should hold 25 lbs of meat for the size of the grinder and the extra guard in the pan is a royal pain to work around I am thinking about cutting mine out to get the meat in better and faster. if will offer a larger pan I would be the first to buy.

Great Grinder and Price
Plenty of power and I was impressed with how quiet it is. I have used my father-in-laws Thunderbird TX-632 in preparing BBQ meats and Brunswick Stew for years for a fundraiser for our local Optimist Club. We prepared 12 hams and 36 gallons of Brunswick Stew. Well his grinder bit the dust, so I started to look for a replacement. I was beginning to be discouraged until I found the LEM #32 Big Bite Grinder. Since the previous grinder was 1.5 HP I did not want to choose a lessor HP motor, which the #32 Big Bite is also 1.5 HP. You won't be disappointed with this one for home use. It is a very well built machine, and as one other review stated was the only negative is the meat tray size. The grinder would keep up with the larger meat tray. Used grinder last weekend and it operated as expected and prepared all the products required for the brunswick stew. Very pleased and would highly recommend this unit for your food preparation needs.

I upgraded from the size 22 to the 32. The 32 is a monster! So for it's been a great purchase. I have processed three deer with it so for this year.
Feed pan on grinder
Pan is way to small for #32 big bite grinder. I would give this unit a 5 if pan was bigger and opening was larger to accommodate larger pieces.
And like the title says, you wont regret this purchase. Plenty of power and I was impressed with how quiet it is. I have used Hobart's in commercial applications for years. You wont be disappointed with this one for home or even small commercial use. It is a very well built machine, the only negative is the meat tray. A grinder of this caliber would benefit from a larger tray and the hand guard isn't user friendly, bit in todays world of liability I understand. Like me, you will find cleanup takes longer than the grinding.
I've used bigger and smaller grinders, this one is a beast.
I got this machine years ago and it still is running great. A great product for the home or small special orders to grind in the shop.
I love the grinder it's a beast the only thing I would like to see Lem do is make the pan size bigger for a grinder of this size the pan needs to be three times the size it is now or at least offer one extra to buy for someone that processes 160 to 200 deer a year in the shop and the neck needs to be bigger so you don't have to cut the meat up so small
I've processed elk & deer with this grinder, and, we also grind our own raw dog food with it. Chicken leg and backbones are no match for this grinder. It will process hundreds of pounds of meat in several hours. Easy cleanup.
Seen grinders a lot larger that didn't grind as good as this. Love mine.
