    I'm on my second generic $100 grinder. First one lasted roughly 10 years from Costco. Bought the same one 2 years ago off amazon. Some grinders (like mine) have plastic gears that break when meat is frozen. Even when you think it's mostly thawed. Then you get to buy a new one. It is definitely a slow operation and meat needs to be cut into chunks before running through. Make sure internal parts are metal if you are going to buy a spendy one.

    Thanks, any sausage makers out there to comment on if you can go too big for sausage?

    Having made a bunch of sausage with a 2 HP grinder, I can see no downside, it works excellent and goes very quickly.

    I have a older Biro 822 (1 hp)grinder that I use for everything. Very heavy and unstoppable. Doesn't even grunt when you try to overload it.
    A booger to clean but they are all same I think. I believe it is important that any suet be a least partially frozen. Suet grinds up finer and disperses better if it is partially frozen. Some grinders have issues with suet, I don't but I prefer my suet to be finer in the burger.
    I can see no downside to a larger grinder
