I have a Cabela's Commercial Grade 1/2HP #8, and the 2nd grind on a 3/16 plate goes through fine. I don't notice mashing it much, but I do have to mash it into the chute...an 8 chute just isn't big enough to just drop already ground meat into it, the meat will cling to the sides. I just load the tray with one hand and work it down the chute with the masher with the other hand. I think the 2nd grind is actually quicker.
