meat grinder

Has anyone tried the 1 3/4 hp meat grinder from Cabelas? Will this grinder stuff sausage while grinding or do you have to grind the meat then change the plate to stuff. Thanks

I haven't tried Cabela's and don't know who makes it for them. I use a WARING model that works well. Now, when you do this, you might want to grind the meat first, season it and add any green onions or whatever you want to add to your sausage and then feed it through the sausage maker attachment. Hope that helps.

No, you can't do that. My dad has the 1.5hp from Cabelas. You can't use the blade when you have the sausage stuffer attachment. I can't imagine how much you could grind with the 1.75hp, the 1.5 is an absolute beast!!!!

My brother in law bought one about 7 years ago and we've never had any trouble with it.. It was the bottom of the line and we paid about $100...that booger is a workhorse!!

I have one and it is a monster meat grinder works better than I thought it would I have ground 45 lbs from start to finish (mix meat add seasoning set up grinder clean grinder and put back up) 2-1/2 hours but acutal grinding of 45 lbs about 5 mins......did 66 lbs with my brother this weekend started grinding at abt 8pm (already had grinder set up and meat mixed.) was through grinding and washing grinder and put up at 905pm total grinding time maybe 10 mins.....only bad thing hard to get #42 plates and hamburger attachment will not fit. Friend of mine has the 1-1/2 hp #32 plate at it is great according to him. If I had it to do over because of the #42 plate stuff I would get the 1-1/2

Save a little money and buy the 1hp or 1 1/2 and get the Cabela 11# sausage stuffer to go with you setup.. Get the foot pedal for you grinder.
We use a kitcen aid mixer to mix the meat instead of the expensive 25# mixer cablea sells... You'd be getting something for momma at the same time.
