have been using my grinder as my stuffer, but want to move on to stuffer. What is the preference, horizontal or vertical? Pros/Cons?

This is a good question im surprised noone has answered it! Only problem is i don't have an answer either, but i am in the market for a stuffer.

My reasoning is..as long as it pushes the meat into the casing with eas it doesnt matter if its vertical or not. I would think that a vertical with the crank would be easiest and not require alot of force or need the stuffer to be bolted to anything. The vertical stuffers should just stay put qas well as take up less space.

I've got a 5# vertical stuffer but it's the only one I've ever used. The horizontal stuffers I've seen are water driven. I would imagine that is the only way to go if you want a horizontal stuffer. I like my stuffer, it's easy to load and will stuff casings from snack sticks to regular size sausage as fast as you can feed the casing. The horns and the body are dishwasher safe - the follower I clean by hand. I bought a big heavy plastic cutting board and I use SS bolts and flynuts to mount the stuffer. I use non-skid shelving liner to keep it from moving while I work. Outside of the stuffer frame and and follower, it all fits in the dishwasher.
