I couldn't believe the difference this new blade made over my old. I would recommend buying 2 and keeping one in freezer to swap while grinding. But I like the way my grinder cuts whith everything as cold as I can get it on the machine.
I have bought 3 # 8 grinders of varying levels and at least a dozen knives and plates. What I have found is that the plates and knives need to go to a shop to be sharpened and trued because even the most expensive ones are normally not true enough. Once they have been sharpened they all work like a charm. I have learned this after butchering at least 20 elk, 30 antelope, multiple deer, 3 hogs and a cow. I don't even bother using a new blade and/or plate until after it has been to my local sharpener.
love knife and grinder. wish i had bought them long ago. Makes making sausage so easy. Grinding used to be a chore. Now i can't keep up feeding the meat it grinds so fast. I would recommend to anyone starting making sausage to buy your products.
I had no idea that 19 years ago when I purchased my #8 grinder I would wait for it to die. This grinder is relentless, it refuses to die so I thought I would reward it with a couple new grinder plates. I lived in Ohio when I first started processing whitetail. Now I live in Colorado with an abundance of game and hunting opportunities. I wish I would have kept track of the thousands of pounds of meat this baby has processed. Maybe some day it will die so I can buy a new one... but I doubt it. Grind on my friends!
I bought the #8 .35 HP Grinder a few years ago and have ground up a steer, 6 deer, and 10 bushels of apples, including cores and stems (making mash to press into cider). The blade is showing no signs of wear or dulling at all. I'm ordering another, just as a backup. I'm sure the first one won't last forever!
I did not buy the real expensive knives just the stainless, but I have a specific knife for each of my plates so the wearing matches. I have ground up two cows, and four boar and I am still going strong with the same knife. I think I need to buy a standby just in case. Now I need a bigger grinder than my #8 .35
just bought a lem grinder, which worked great until the knife became dull. dull after grinding the meat off of just 2 deer. will order and try one of the expensive ones and hope that solves the problem.
We LOVE the #8 LEM grinder! The knife has lasted through 14 deer (several hundred pounds of meat), and is still going strong. We plan to order another knife just to have one on hand in case this one does finally give out.
Though I was following instructions which came with the grinder, I was only able to process about 20lbs of gound meat before the knife gave out. Not a good quality knife on the brand new and expensive .35hp grinders...
