    Default Upgrading my meat grinder

    Going to update to a better meat grinder, my 10 year old harbor freight grinder has far exceeded it life expectancy. Thinking of going with the Cabelas brand Carnivore line, I believe I can add a cuber to it. Should I spend the extra 50.00 and go with the 3/4 hp vs the 1/2 hp? Anyone use the Carnivore line of grinders? I may process 3-4 deer a year.

    While I have no experience in this subject matter what so ever, common sense and general lessons learned in life would steer me to spend the extra $50.

    I was looking at them. I have borrowed a #22 Cabelas's many a time and never had a complaint. I was thinking about getting the #22 vs the #12. Another $150 but I believe it's worth the extra HP.

    Hard to beat a Lifetime warranty.
