I currently have a John Wagner #2 Sausage stuffer - it stuffs horizontally. It is probably one of the best stuffers ever used with the exception of a hydraulic one I played with at NDSU a few years ago. I recently got rid of a Enterprise 8qt. which worked well - but was tough to clean up and compared to my Wagner a lot harder to crank. My question is: has anybody used a LEM horizontal 11# stuffer or anything comparable. I want something smaller and easier to clean that I use when it is just me playing.

Scheels has that one for $150.  I was thinking about investing in one this fall.  The one I have right now sucks.

It's been a long day....  I will leave it at that.

Grizzly Bear Said:

I to have a Wagner #2 - hands down the best non-commercial stuffer ever.  My previous Enterprise 8qt. worked okay when you kept it extremely clean - but nothing compared to the Wagner.  I figured the Horizontal stuffing concept was probably the ticket, so I bought one of the 11# LEM's with the intent it would be nice when I am doing my oddball experimentations during the year - as it appears (and is) much easier to clean than my Wagner.  Don't get me wrong the Wagner is easier to clean than the Enterprise, but the "gear bar" can be a pain with the weight of the unit.  Anyways - the LEM works fine for Summer Sausage, Ringstyle, etc...  But, you can really feel the pressure on the gears and handle when you do peppersticks.  Do I like it - yes.  Would I want it as my primary stuffer - no.

Whatever you buy stay away from the Cabela's stuffers. Had a 30 lb and the gears broke teeth off second time I used it.  It also has a lot of blow by in the piston when stuffing sticks because the piston seal is poorly made and you have to ad so much water to the mix to get it to go through the small stuffing horn.  LEM makes a good quality stuffer heavy steel and well made. I bought a 15 lb upright stuffer from northern Industrial and it works pretty well. It looks like the LEM and is almost as well made. Only thing about it is when stuffing sticks it is hard to crank. The smaller  5 and 11 lb stuffers have a piston and barrel that are smaller in diameter and are easier to stuff into smaller casings. LEM also makes an excellent large commercial stuffer that has gear ruductions for stuffing small diameter but it costs around 2 grand, but t is really fast and if a group of guys went together on it, it might be worth the cash.
