I have been on the lookout for some equipment so I can start making my own sausage. I found a used commercial Anvil (Vollrath) model #0012 that is about 5 years old from a lady here in town. I'm not familiar with the name, but from what I've read online, it is supposed to be a good grinder / sausage stuffer. I have her talked down to $300 for it, sells for around $650 new. Does anyone have experience with this brand? Is it better to get a cheaper grinder and seperate vertical sausage stuffer? She says it stuffs sausage great and only used it once for an elk. I wont be making lots and lots of sausage...just enough for my family of 4 and a few gatherings throughout the year....i'm guessing about 50 - 100 lbs a year. Any suggestions are appreciated.

You can certainly get a grinder and stuffer for much less than $300. The Northern 5# goes on sale for about $90 quite often and there are lots of grinders out there for just over $100
Personally, I have the grinder attachment for my KitchenAid and bought the 5# LEM stuffer and am very happy with both.
