Cabela's Commercial Grade Grinder

I'm going to be purchasing one in the very near future. I can't decide between the 1/2 HP and the 3/4 HP. Anybody have either model...pros...cons?

Also, anybody have any of the attachments...how do they work. I'm thinking about the jerky slicer, or I might just buy a regular sliding bed slicer. Also considering the meat mixer attachment.

Eh...wot?

Re: Cabela's Commercial Grade Grinder

I have the 1 HP and it works great. I've had it for 5 years now and have had no problems.

Re: Cabela's Commercial Grade Grinder

A friend of mine has the 1/2 HP model. I have borrowed it several time and it works GREAT! My friend went in with another guy to buy it, so they split the cost. It's probably 2-3 years old now. I know it gets used ALOT because my friend uses it, his 2 boys, the other guy, and me on occassions. The grinder is well made and has some weight to it .... built like a tank!

I can't say anything about "attachements" as he doesn't have any for it.

Good luck!

Re: Cabela's Commercial Grade Grinder

I have the 1 horse and have ground about 40 deer over the past five years (our whole hunting party) works great. it is recommended to get one with a reverse gear.

Re: Cabela's Commercial Grade Grinder

I agree w/ inatree make sure it has reverse 9as far as I know all the cabelas comm. do) We have a 3/4 horse and works great. the only attachment we use the patty press, also works great

GOD is GREAT, BEER is GOOD, & PEOPLE are CRAZY

Re: Cabela's Commercial Grade Grinder

The 1/2 and 3/4's have forward only. You have to get a 1 hp or bigger to get a reverse.

Do you guys use the reverse often?

Eh...wot?

Re: Cabela's Commercial Grade Grinder

Go to Bass pro shop.I usually dont buy anything from a large chain until tested but the LEM grinders are beasts.Get a #5(the smallest) and you won't be sorry.They are bullet proof.No reverse but then again our #8 has been through verything we can put through it and it never even strained or over heated.
Be sure not to get plastic gears.The LEM grinders are all metal gears and attachments.
See it here:

We are going to process a whole pig through this bad boy on 12\19.
