I’ve had the 1hp Cabela’s grinder for 3 years now and it has always operated flawlessly. I probably only make between 100 and 150 lbs. of Italian, breakfast and venison sausage annually, but it could do a lot more. Maybe paid too much, but there is a store locally and I couldn’t wait. Good luck!
Couldn’t help but notice that you have what looks like a Yellow Tang as our sig. pict.. I had a 400 gal coral and fish saltwater setup, not counting sump, until about 3 years ago. Loved it..
