Commercial meat grinder

I am preparing to go RAW. I am learning all I can before I make the big purchase... the grinder. Does anyone here have any suggestions as to the perfect grinder? I will be grinding the bones so it will need to be powerful. Will a 1/2 or 3/4 horsepower do the job? I am looking at the Cabela ones now... Any suggestions or advice? I appreciate it!!!

I use a 450 watt Waring Pro

This is NOT the one at CDN Tire, it only has a 300 watt motor and if you are grinding bones (chicken or turkey) it may not do. Also, ligaments do a number on the motor, so another reason to go with a good quality.

I do on average 15 lbs of raw during one session and have NO problems with this grinder.

The Tasin TS-108 ( is a favourite amongst the raw feeders. There is also a very similar one by Northern Tools ( which might even be cheaper.
