    1 hp or bigger, mine is an old cabelas and works good, there's surely better stuff out there.
    They all suck for making sausages, get a sausage press for that.
    Keep everything really cold, slightly frozen is fine, but nothing even close to warm will grind in mine

    Yes even put the parts of your grinder (except the motor of course) in the freezer to get super cold first. And I like to place a bowl of ice under the bowl that I’m grinding into to keep the meat cold.

    My grinder actually came with a freezer pack that straps around the grinder throat to keep all that cold while using it

    We use the same unit. Has worked great for over 20 years. When I bought it for the wife at Christmas, an old lady standing next to me said it was a good purchase "I've had mine since the 1940's".
