    I've got one I bought from Northern Tool Company over 10 years ago for $99. It is 1200 watt which is 1.75 hp. It will grind 176 lbs per hr. Bought all my extra attachments from LEM enterprise. It is made in China & noisey, but I've ground alot of meat & stuffed alot of summer sausage with it!

    I use a Cabelas 1.5HP grinder that my family bought years ago. It works great, will grind meat as fast as you can feed it. Ive used it for multiple deer and a few elk. I also use it to stuff summer sausage and snack sticks with the sausage stuffer attachments. It's a little too powerful for the snack sticks, it sometimes blows out the casings if you don't help it feed through fast by pulling on the casing. As for grinding it's great.

    Checked online last night at Northern Tool they are still advertising 176 lbs. per hour & $99. Only difference now is it is a 320 or 330 watt, .5 hp

    We have the large 1 3/4 hp grinder from cabelas. You can grind as fast as you want all day long. Get the foot switch and you wont be sorry. The patty maker DOES NOT fit the big one, you have to drop down in size to get the patty maker to fit ( there are all kinds of adaptors to fit all the grinders except the big one, WTF ?) We have rigged it but had we known we could have gotten by with the 1 1/2 hp model. As Wapiti66 said, the bigger ones split your casings if you are not on top of your game. The foot feed helps but still it pushes a lot of meat in a hury.

    I have the 1/2 horse Cabelas commercial-grade grinder, and it is awesome for grinding venison. It grinds about 150 pounds per year, and have never had a problem with it.
    Live to hunt, hunt to live.
