Hi Ricco. Very happy with it. Personally i wouldnt go any smaller. I have a big # 42 butchers mincer that i only use occaissionally. The plates & knives are rather expensive, whereas i can buy plenty of the # 22 size ones for less. If i only had 1 mincer i would get a # 32. The cover can be taken off if you want. They would be more than capable of doing 150 kg at once. Takes me about 5 minutes to do 10kg. Butcher at Home and Butcherquip (sister companies) have them on special at the moment.

thanks for the replies

Its probably more likely that ill be doing 100kg batches in the future.

So considering this, do you think the #22 would be ok. its on sale for $600, while the #32 is almost double that.

The 5kg stuffer is also on sale, do you thing its a necessity, or would the filling attachment for the machine suffice.

Ive been using a modified hand mincer with a motor attached to mince and stuff. A hand me down from my Uncle. But its time to get with the times and lash out on some new equipment!

I have a size 22 grinder, it's 1.5 hp., made in China, so I had to rework the hole thing, but I used to be a precision machinist..... :wink:
I make 30 kg. at a time, and that's about the maximum, I favor smaller bathes for quality,s sake.
What I want to say is, that I can't feed it fast enough, it can grind a herd is a short time.
On the other hand making 100 kg. is a much different story.




Stuffing with the grinder attachment, is a real pain in the rear, compared with a regular stuffer.
Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

Hey Joe, you wrote:

Aren't you STILL a precision machinist? Just retired. Heck ol' pal, I used to be a precision cow kicker! Now, I'm a retired cow kicker, but I'm still a cow kicker! :wink:

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D
