Anyone here have any input on the stuffers Gander Mountain sells? Particularly the 15# one. Thanks.
The best several of us can tell its the same one Northern Tools sells and has metal gears
So I take this has been discussed before. Someone has one for sale for 70 bucks. A small crack in one of the pins he said, but and easy fix. Are they a good item?
I think somebody just bought one. I'm trying to think of who it was. I have the 15 lb from Northern Tool and it works great
Really. I looked at both and I really can not tell them apart. What about metal stuffer tubes, are those easily found? This is the last question on this I promise
Not sure about the metal stuffing tubes but my question would be why? The plastic ones work fine for me
A friend of mine picked up that 15 lb. stuffer at Gander Mountain this fall and tells me he likes it; from what I know they seem to be descent stuffers.
Just seem more durable to me. I have heard of others breaking their tubes or cracking them, and I have already broke one of mine on my grinder/stuffer combo unit. Just curious more than anything I guess. Im going to give that guy a call and go check that stuffer out tomorrow.
I'd buy it before somebody else does!! Thats a good price
I just got one the other day.. Looks well made, metal gears, stainless steel...
Exact same stuffer. Northern Tool has it on sale for $170.99, reg. $189.99. Grab it quick! You'll love it! Try SausageMaker.com for replacement stuffing tubes, you'll want to get the 2" ones.
They are worth the money for sure. Only issue is the manufacture does not make a tube small enough for snack sticks. I found a stainless one at a resteraunt supply place that fits my 5 pound verticle. the 15 pound should be the same size as I recall.

I got one for sheep casings at Butcher-Packer, it was one that fit the F. **** stuffer, a 3/8" diameter and works well.
I have one,, Don't know if it is good compared to others or not, it is the only one I have ever used but it beats the heck out of stuffing with the grinder...
I love it.. Ya,, will likely buy metal tubes for it. Not a problem yet after about 90 lb through it. Paid 200 for mine. When I tried to get the northern it was backordered till april... Maybee they got them in sooner.
