On clearance for 259. Anyone had any experience with them? Looking for good one that will last. May have to go with LEM if these aren't any count

My stepdad has an LEM and it has been a good one. But I would highly recommend giving the Weston line a look. All of their products seem to be top of the line and if you are only doing 5-6 deer a year then their consumer grade will work just fine.

From what I understand, LEM's components are made of plastic and aren't designed to be fixed or replaced. I'm told Weston offers replacement parts for those that ever fail.

And for the money, I think the 575W (0.8 HP) is probably a more appropriate value.

I can not vouch for the higher end grinders as I have never owned nor used one (cost)

I can speak for the one I purchased and have used on a very regular basis, not only to process my deer every yr. but for other food projects throughout the yr. as well.

I purchased a 800w/1 hp grinder at Dick's @ 8yrs. ago, it is made by Sunmile. It is a grinding fool for the money...........@$60.00. Easy to assemble and clean, and I have never had one single problem with it in the 8 yrs. If it should crap out, I will purchase another one just like it.

The customer reviews vary as like most products, but it has an overall rating of 4+ out of 5.

They offer larger versions as well and can be found on Ebay.

I've been switching all of my processing equipment to Weston -its the best on the market and very reasonably priced. I just replaced my grinder with a Weston.

Sounds like weston is the Cadillac. I bout the gander one because of the sale price. If I utilize it like I think I will when it dies I will go weston.

I have been using the Kitchen Aid grinding attachment for my Wife's mixer. Does the job but I noticed it would warm the motor up to the point I would shut it down.

So I went and got a grinder off the web. Soon's I have some pic's and a story to tell, I'll post up a thread.
