I tried out the 1/2 inch ratchet drive today while stuffing summer sausage. Totally pleased and satisfied with how it works! I was working alone and being able you work the handle between the 11 o’clock and 2 o’clock positions was a breeze.
I put a cheater pipe on the ratchet for a bit more leverage and I think I could stuff brats and other smaller stuff alone as well. Probably not sticks though.
Sticks would still be a two-man show.
