I was looking at the Cabelas electric meat grinders and trying to decide which one to buy. I've done the math and it will definitely pay for itself in a few years. They offer the .5hp, 1hp, 1.5hp and the 1.75hp grinders. I'm thinking that the 1hp should have plenty power to do what I need. Do any of you have this type of grinder and/or what size motor? I've seen many smaller grinders bog down while grinding deer due to the tendons, etc in the meat. Let me know what ya'll think.
