I had a #32 hand crank that I rigged to a motor. I decided to upgrade to the Cabelas 1 1/2 hp grinder. What An Upgrade!!! This grinder is a beast. It never hesitates, ripping through meat like it is butter. Since I purchased it, (something like 5-7 years ago), it has done dozens of deer, 2 whole beefs, and 8 hogs. It will be doning another beef this year along with 6 more hogs. You can leave the meat in large chuncks (3 or 4 inches square) or long strips. My old grinder I had to cut everything into 1 inch pieces. Love this grinder and can't even imagine using anything smaller.
