This grinder does a good job on small projects, perfect for grinding meats to cook for dinner and small processing jobs. I wouldn’t try to process 3 or four deer with it ( at least not all at the same time). The grinder is very light weight and portable. Its easy to clean and is compact with all plates and stuffing materials storing neatly in the stomper. A few concerns, the plastic gear will not hold out for a lot of grinding, however it comes with a spare. It may just be me but it seams louder than most commercial grinders I have been around, but the power seams to be there.
