Pros: Big bite auger, powerful motor, available accessories.
The speed this grinder goes through meat is downright amazing. With the big bite auger it literally pulls the meat through the feed tube. I have had several grinders and this is by far the best. With all the available accessories you can make meat patties, jerky, snack sticks, and cube steaks all with one machine. If you do any large amount of meat grinding or sausage making, you can't go wrong with LEM #8.
