They all do better if you use frozen mead.

Bill is right, chill the mead grin

I have a LEM #8 iirc and it grinds like a MOFO, hard to beat warranty at the cost point as well.

We have a 1 3/4 HP Cabelas beast at the ranch, we process about 30 deer a year. It is handy when we have one of our all day 1200 pounds of sausage parties.
At home I keep a LEM #8 that is a 1/3 HP (Big Bite). I only do my deer with it, about 12 a year. It will grind up 20 pounds of meat in three minutes, and never slow down, 4 years now. For a guy that only shoots a few WT, it is more than adequate.

It took me 4 years to wear out a Waring .5hp plastic gear toy grinder. I replaced it with a LEM #12 and it does more than I can ask of it. Great piece of equipment and glad I bought it every time I pull it out.

I have a Gander Mtn .75 hp electric grinder. I works great. I spend more time cleaning the grinder after use, than grinding the meat.

Used the .25 & .35 HP LEM grinders for years. Frustrating when you are doing large batches, have to keep stopping to clean out due to tendons plugging it up. Bought the 1 HP Weston #22, thing is a beast! Can't slow it down, I've tried. Never tried the bigger LEM's that are available now, they probly work just fine too. I am still on the original blade on my Weston and it still grinds like the day I bought it. I say think long term, whether you choose Weston or LEM get at least a 1 HP and take care of it, it will take care of you. I have not compared the 1 HP Weston to the 1 HP LEM but I would like to.
