Clearance: Pro-Cut KG-12-FS Grinder

This is a scratch and dent clearance item. Please check the tables below to see how we rate our clearance items.

The Pro-Cut KG-12-FS is a very popular meat grinder with small shops and hunters. It offers commercial meat grinder construction and performance with a very affordable price tag. Like all Pro-Cut meat grinders, it has a sealed oil bath gear box with all steel gears for extreme durability. Using all steel gears sets these grinders completely apart from consumer type grinders that incorporate at least one plastic gear.

Fast meat grinding: With its high torque 3/4 horsepower motor and #12 grinding head, with meat at 32°F the KG-12-FS will grind 7.3 lb./minute on the first grind (3/8" plate) and 4 lb./minute on the second grind (1/8" plate). It has a 100% duty cycle for nonstop grinding. Its meat grinder plates are 2.75" diameter and it comes with a 3/16" grinder plate. The feed throat is large 2-1/4" and this grinder will really pull meat through—there's no need to force meat down the throat.

  • “Service was fantastic, great professional rep, merchandise was shipped fast and you kept me informed of status.”

    – Ruth P., NY

The extra large, heavy-gauge feed tray measures 2.5" x 13" x 21". This Pro-Cut meat grinder has a full-width support cradle under the back end of the meat tray giving it outstanding stability, superior to the flimsy trays on most grinders. The headstock and screw are long-life tin-dipped cast iron, and the housing and pan are food-grade stainless steel. 

Pro-Cut KG-12-FS commercial meat grinder features:

  • High torque 3/4 HP motor
  • Plugs into standard 110V outlet
  • Includes #12 plate (2.75" diameter) with 3/16" holes
  • Includes stainless knife
  • Includes heavy duty stomper
  • 79 lbs net wt.
  • NSF & UL certified

Shipping is by FedEx Ground and price includes shipping to U.S. 48 states.

Pleasant Hill Grain is among the largest stocking distributors of Pro-Cut equipment in the U.S. We offered the highly respected Mexican-built Tor-Rey/Torrey brand of meat processing equipment until the Pro-Cut brand was established for the U.S. market. Pro-Cut has no business connection, today, with Torrey, but their basic machine designs, construction and quality are exactly the same. Pro-Cut makes time proven, workhorse machines that you can depend on.

Pro-Cut meat grinder knives and plates can be used in Torrey grinders.

At Pleasant Hill Grain we're here as your meat processing resource. Whether you need a commercial meat grinder, supplies, or answers to your questions, we look forward to serving you. We provide support before and after the sale, and we would appreciate your business!

Three additional notes:

  1. The ratings are for cosmetic condition only. All Clearance Store merchandise is guaranteed to function perfectly.
  2. Items are offered under normal terms of sale: Please review policies before ordering.
  3. Discount percentages for R1 and R2 items are minimum discounts... Some items are marked even lower.
  4. Some clearance items ship in plain (but carefully boxed) packaging, rather than the manufacturer’s original carton.
  5. Important: All clearance items may have been exposed to various allergenic foods.


Bottom Line: If you’re a highly detail-oriented person, we recommend sticking to “R1.” But after a week’s use, the only real difference between one of these items and a brand new one will be the money you saved.

Expanded Ratings Descriptions

R1 Very close scrutiny is required to tell that the item isn’t brand new. Working surfaces may show slight wear; for example, the bottom-inside of a Bosch mixer bowl may show swirl marks because Bosch mixer whips are designed to “float” against bottom of bowl. Non-working surfaces (cabinet, control panel) look essentially new. Carton may not be perfect.
R2 Typically has a small scuff or mark on a non-working surface like a mixer cabinet or the top of a pressure cooker lid.
FR Mostly returned items which have been brought fully up to new-equipment performance specs at the factory.
D Demonstration items have been operated briefly at Pleasant Hill Grain.
DXD These items have never been used but we no longer sell them at full price in our store because it was discontinued by us or by the manufacturer.
U Has had light use.
SD Has moderate damage on a non-working surface, such as a scratch or dent in the housing.
NOS A brand new item that isn't the newest model.
