I’m looking for recommendations on some meat processing equipment. Mostly a good quality bandsaw, but also a grinder and meat slicer for family use on deer, pigs, and hopefully some day I’ll get brave enough to butcher my own cow.

We started processing all of our own game and making our own sausage. We purchased all LEM equipment. Couldn't be happier. JV

Get a #22 grinder at least, foot switch too.
You can stuff with it fine just not fast like a stuffer.
We just use big meat tubs for mixing, a mixer is a pain to clean.

Might check at Butcher Packer Supply or Allied Kenco for a bandsaw/ meat saw.

Looked at A/K, call and ask about cheaper ones , lol.

Lot of "heavy" lifting dealing with a cow. That there is quie a task.

I took a #22 hand grinder and added a 1/4 HP motor from an old bench grinder and it will grind as fast as you can feed it. No on/off switch, just plug in and go. This along with an 11 lb. Stuffer and a meat tenderizer and the correct knives is all I need for any deer or elk.

this sounds similar to what my dad set up years ago but with a couple HP electric motor he took off an old gas pump. He quickly re-thought not having an on/off switch ... after he got his left-hand ring finger caught in the feed tube one day making sausage. Fortunately, he ripped the outlet out of the wall jerking on the cord to kill power before his whole hand got sucked in. He then had to one handed take off the lock nut, the grinder plate and the screw out to find the portion of his finger to take to the ER to get sewed back on. took him several years before his fingernail grew back.

just word of caution on rigging something up yourself, keep safety in mind

OK I'll put a switch on it this year. scared

I think I'll go with a fancy push button one you can just slap off if something goes wrong.

I typically make sausage alone because my wife can't stand to see how much fat goes into it. I find a foot operated switch is pretty darn helpful.
