Pros: Worked great for about 100 lbs worth of grain.
Cons: After about 100 lbs of grain passes through it, it starts to bind occasionally. A few more brews later, you're going to have to get another mill. The rollers dig into the metal housing and wear groves into it.
Recommended? NoDon't buy it. You'll be very happy at first, but it won't last long.
Cons: The rollers come loose or get stuck. Poorly designed. A piece of junk.
Recommended? NoAs stated in another review, the rollers come off easily and when tightened they get stuck. It's a real piece of junk.
Recommended? NoI have had this mill for about 3 years now and it has never lived up to its advertised potential.It makes a good crush but the rollers keep coming loose and if you tighten them up to much so they stay in the mill is bound up and wont take grain.It is a simple design it just needs a little refinement and a tune-up before every session.
Pros: Rollers can be adjusted easily
Cons: Durable construction.
Recommended? NoI bought this mill about 6 years ago. I don't recall what I paid, but I got it with the added stainless hopper. I seem to recall in the $130 - 140 range. The mill seemed to work fine for the first 4 years or so with a cordless drill. It is a bit of a pain to attach to a bucket, but not disfunctional. I brew 5 gallon batches about once a month. It served my needs. After 4 years, the screws into the plastic cross pieces on each side came loose and the mill needed repair which I did. The rollers are getting worn and they do not roll as smoothly so I now power it with a 7 amp corded drill and it is still going. I too am waiting for it to crap out so I can upgrade to a new mill, but I do feel I have gotten my value from it. For the money and today's selection of mills, I recommend other products.
Pros: It breaks soon, so you can buy a better mill.
Cons: pain in the ass to adjust, attach to bucket and over priced
Recommended? NoSo poorly designed. It is a pain to use from day one. It is difficult to attach to a bucket, a total pain in the ass to adjust, slow to grind and overpriced. The only redeeming feature is that it breaks soon (mine went with in a year, less than 10 all grain brews) and you can get a better mill.
