But the cheaper is twice the h.p. Thier must be something I am missing
I have the cheaper LEM and love it. The body isn't stainless, but I have not found that to be an issue. The most I have ground is 10 lb at any one time and that has been effortless. You can get up to 1/2" plate size and two grades of stainless ones if you want.
I have only used it since Christmas so have no long term experience with it.
