Thunderbird 400E Meat Grinder (#22 head)

Thunderbird, a respected name in midsize commercial meat grinders, builds high performance grinders that stand up to steady use. The 400E is a popular grinder with sportsmen and small shop owners, offering commercial construction and performance, as well as NSF certification, at a very affordable price.

Grinds Fast: With a #22 head and industrial 1.5 HP motor, the Thunderbird 400E grinds 18 to 20 lbs/minute through a 3/16" plate. It has a 100% duty cycle for nonstop productivity. The feed throat is 2-1/2".

Stainless construction: The meat tray, headstock, feed screw, headstock ring and plate are all made of food grade stainless steel. Meat tray measures 11" x 15".

Certifications: NSF and UL certified.

  • “PHG does customer service the right way, with quick response and great follow through on any little question or order issue.”

    – David W., NV

Because it operates on 1-phase power, this grinder can be used in any location, even without a commercial 3-phase power supply.

The Thunderbird 400E grinder ships by truck freight, and price includes shipping to U.S. 48 states.

    The T-Bird is exceptionally solid. At 88 pounds of stainless steel and muscle it's a heck of a grinder, chewing up anything and everything I've been able to throw down it's throat.

    We haven't had it a long time yet, but no problems to date. It's easy to use, components seem very solid and cleanup is easy.

    This grinder is a beast that hasn't met it's match and I don't expect it to! The only thing better has been Pleasant Hill's service... untouchable.
