    Comments about Vollrath #12 Bench Style Meat Grinder:

    Bought this in preparation for harvesting a few hogs this winter; I raise them as a hobby. One weighs ~750# now, so I know I'll be making a lot of sausage. Tried it out in anticipation and I'm quite impressed.

        Unfortunately, no there is no tenderizing attachment for this unit, and is just a grinding unit.
