For the last 6 years I have been using a 4 quart Enterprise sausage stuffer with a wiper ring and have found it a pain to reload doing 25 lb. batches of sausage. My wife and I have been wanting to afford a 15 lb. stuffer but seem to always find other things we need/want to purchase. A few weeks ago on eBay we picked up a pre-owned 25 lb. Sausage Maker stuffer for well under $200 with shipping (retail is $925 plus shipping). Now when we stuff our batches there will be no more reloading. Now we are really looking forward to deer season !!!
