What are the main differences in these two grinders? Is it just the outer cabinet or, does the FS have some updates I see mentioned on the larger capacity grinders?
Also, other than the smaller throat compared to the Weston, are there features on either that make them more attractive to a non-commercial user?
The Weston #22 offers a mixer connection but, I’m unsure if this is worth consideration. Also, since the Weston #22 and KG-12 are practically the same price, does this really make one or the other ‘better’ for non-commercial use?
I kill a lot of feral hogs so, I’m wanting to grind some of them in bulk sausage. I also want to make some of my own hamburger blends and at some point, I will start making meat sticks and summer sausages. Buying a separate sausage stuffer is likely so, that isn’t a big decision point for buying the larger Weston #22.
In terms of quantity, I don’t want to go so big I won’t grind 10#'s due to hassles with a cleanup or set up but, I also don’t want to spend all day grinding a 50# or 200# of feral hog either. I have the space for either unit.
