Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mac339 Sausage Stuffer
Rated this unit excellent based on price comparison/features versus other similar sized vertical stuffers.
Pros- very little meat left in bottom only where it exits stuffer(maybe 1/3 pd tops). stuffed 30 pounds of summer sausage in less than 25 minutes- spent more time reloading and tieing the casings off than actually stuffing. did this all with one person the first time using this unit. have not tested this with smaller stuffer tubes-but based on this experiment i don't think their will be any issues
Cons- stuffing tubes are plastic, poor manual (details), no listing of spare parts. watch the handle as it doesn't have the option of locking in place when you are loading unloading or cleaning. plus if you stop stuffing in the middle and just let go it can swing backwards a few times and potentially smack you upside the head.
overall pretty darn good though i listed a bunch of cons. first time using a hand crank stuffer. used to work in a butcher shop with hydraulic stuffer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Freddy Excellent Product for A VERY Reasonable Price
I bought this for my father in-law - an avid "old school" butcher. We used it this past January and WOW, nothing but rave reviews by ALL the guys there - all avid sportsmen who have made sausage for many years but could not get over how well the sausage stuffer worked. They were all amazed at how smooth it worked, easy to fill the drum, and little sausage left over when done stuffing. Overall, this is a GREAT product with a GREAT price from Home Depot. Sure, you can go to the big name hunting/outdoors stores and spend $100-200 MORE on a stuffer and get a product that is on par with this one. But hey, I don't like just giving money away!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BigPapi Very easy to use.
This sausage stuffer was shipped promptly and arrived earlier than promised. Quality was much heavier/better than I expected, based on the price versus similar models I researched. Bought this one based on reviews I've read on-line and was not disappointed. The only thing stopping this from being a 5 star review, is due to the way the handle is put together. The nut holding the handle to the crank kept coming loose. Not a big deal, but enough that I had to stop multiple times to tightened it during use. Overall a huge upgrade over the grinder/stuffer system I had been using.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Adman Does its job very well
I used it a few days after delivery and found it very useful. My father in-law and I made about 25lbs of pork sausage and it is capable of working faster then we could. I made a small modification based on other reviews and added a water filter gasket to the plunger to keep the sausage from squeezing up the sides as many complained about. (Although everyone complains these days) Anyway, The stuffer worked like magic! It easily cut 40 min to an hour off of the total time compared to when we used the grinder to stuff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oertli Would and have recommended
I bought this for my husband 2 years ago. We make all our own sausage from pork or pork and venison about 200lbs per year. We use this exclusively to fill the bags and casings. We have an industrial grinder but, use this for stuffing as it allows more control and is easily a one person job. I would recommend this for anyone. Easy clean up and no waste.
