    I picked one up from princess auto a few years back on sale for like $50.... does a okay job grinding up 10-20 lbs of meat....
    Meat grinders work best when the meat is slightly frozen.

    I have the Kitchen Aid attachment and have been using that for many years (30 years). It works good for the 1 deer a year I usually harvest and the occasional Bear. However you do need to sharpen the cutters once in a while and I find if you use the coarse or "large hole" die to first grind the meat and then use the "small holed" die to regrind it goes through the meat a lot faster with minimal bogging down of the motor. I do like the idea of the more powerful units though with two additional tags in the family, I just might do that.

    Grinders fall into that category you get what you pay for...if you aren't paying a lot for one your getting one that has nylon gears that will strip if you over load it. Andrew's review cover some of the more expensive models so they work great.

    Not to say the cheaper ones you buy aren't any good, I had a $50 one from eBay that lasted yrs. I was pushing some meat that was a bit to frozen thru it and it was working too hard and stripped the gears. The average guy doing up one or two deer a year (maybe 100 lbs of ground meat) and taking it easy would have no problems with the lower priced lines.
