  • “If your shipping was any faster the box would have caught on fire.”

    – Don H., PA

Included: 1/4" and 3/16" plates, stainless knife, heavy duty stomper.

Certifications: NSF and UL certified.

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

Electrical: 220 volt, 60 Hz, 30 amps, single phase. Power cord is supplied. (User supplies cable end plug to fit your receptacle. This requires basic electrical wiring skills.)

The Thunderbird 500E grinder ships by truck freight, and price includes shipping to U.S. 48 states.
