I have saw these and was wondering how well they would work. I need one to process a couple deer a year and maybe grind some sausage.

gander mountain in Jackson had a couple models on sale I think 50% off last night when I was there, really thought hard about getting the real heavy duty one that was originally close to $500 grinds 9lbs a min. but talked myself into just keep on using my little old one.

More follow up.
fully defrosted or partially, this grinder did not seem to care. Pass 1 was amazing and Pass 2 even more so. Seems as if what silver skin got through the first time was caught the second time. I mixed a 1 to 4 ratio of pork sausage to venison and ran it through twice using the fine grate and then made burgers. Came out really good and I did not use hardly any spices at all.

It is noisy, the upper tray seems to have been an afterthought, and the grinding part is not 90 degrees up and down. At the price it seems to me to be a great bargain. Now I need to determine longevity and can I find a spare cutting blade.

Interesting. That looks like it might be an older version of the STX Turbo Force grinder. Either that or it could be a copy cat version (hence, the misspelling on the outer cover). Something is strange because I Googled "Turbo Force 2000" and didn't find any mention of it on the internet and it isn't for sale anywhere except on ebay. The current version (Turbo Force 3000), is widely mentioned on the internet and is available here:

STX INTERNATIONAL STX-3000-TF

3 SPEED TURBOFORCE 3000 SERIES

STX TURBOFORCE 3000 SERIES ELECTRIC MEAT GRINDER

My mom got the Turbo Force 3000 a few months ago. I ran a doe through it in November. It's as loud as a jet engine, but it performed well. It comes with fine, medium and course grinding plates, which is nice. Also, it's a #12 size grinder, which I'm pretty sure is the most popular size for home grinding. The output capacity of #12 grinders is good and it's also easy to find additional or replacement grinding plates, knives and stuffing attachments.

It does not perform as well and is not as well made as my Cabela's grinder, but it is also less than half the price. Since we have only used the Turbo Force 3000 a few times it's way too early to tell how durable it will be, but so far I've been pretty impressed with it. I would recommend it to someone who's looking for a grinder under $200 to use for home processing. They also make an "air cooled" model which costs more. They claim the air cooled feature will prolong the life of the motor. I'm not sure what that implies about the non-air cooled model.

Assuming it's not some Chinese counterfeit grinder, that "Turbo Froce 2000" seems pretty appealing at less than half the price of the Turbo Force 3000. I'm interested to see how it performs for you over time.
