My food saver sealer took a crap the other day. Today I was at a local store called "Ollie's" they buy up store close-outs, stuff like that. Anyway, they had a new western harvest guard sealer for $49. I did a quick search and seen they're an older model but usually $99.
Does anyone have any insight into how good a unit this is? I use my sealer more than the average person. Thanks for any info

If you use it more than average. LEM VacMaster. I have the 250 model but they are a good line and worth the money if you seal a lot.

My FoodSaver lasted more than 20 yrs. I used that thing religiously.

When it died I bought a chamber sealer. If I knew then what I know now.......

Yes, the chamber initial price can be rough. But bag cost, time saved, and performance are all on an entirely different level. Add in the ability to change vac levels to different types of food.

Buy once, cry once. I got a Vevor which is one of the cheaper models.

It was worth it.
 
THESE ARE OLDER, INDESTRUCTABLE, MADE IN ITALY My entire family has one in each of there houses.

Western Harvest? Not familiar with that brand. Sounds to be American Harvest clone?
I loved my Ziplock (now defunct) vac unit, but ruined it with a big gulp of clam juice.
Replaced it with a $100 Cabelas unit. Very solid performance.

Didn't realize my phone changed it. It should be Weston Harvest Guard
