Get a Lem, and never look back. About the best out there. Academy has several models to choose from.

I love my Cabelas commercial grade. I bought the 1/2 power model. It is a work horse. Did 30 pounds of breakfast sausage the other day in very little time.

Goes on sale regularly too. Easy to clean. Very simple machine.

Is the Deni 3500 still available? I checked amazon and a few other sites to no avail.

We use a #32 hand crank grinder, plenty fast for us, really needs 2 people to be working when using it. But I refuse to make sausage if no one wants to help. Everybody wants to eat the sausage, then someone better help of they get the store brand.

I have been using a Lem #12 big bite for a few years with excellent results. If you plan on doing a lot of regrinding you may want a grinder with a bigger throat like a #22 hobart or torrey.

I have a Kitchener 3/4 hp #22 that is a beast. It can grind as fast as i can put the meat into the throat. It cleans up really easy. The only negative I could think of is it is really heavy and loud, but that is not a problem for me.
