Olo Manolo: Dangerous-- more dangerous than swinging around an 8lb sharpened steel blade on the end of a 3' pole? more dangerous than a hydraulic log splitter with >10 tons of crushing/splitting force?Poorly designed -- looks like it was working pretty well to me, can't argue with simple effectiveness...less efficiently-- I'm thinking subby has never split wood... Use a maul for a day and see if you still feel that way...
mr_a: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0-1Rx1NNDYThe way it should be done!As for the redneck engineering, I don't know how "inherently dangerous" it is...but I think that Billy Bob needs to have a little more respect for a pointy auger powered by 200HP.
sammyk:An accident with an ax or a hydraulic wood splitter is a one shot injury, getting caught up in that screw will continue to rip you apart until your dumbass buddy can kill the engine. Splitting wood is inherently dangerous. Invent a way to do it safer and you stand to make some decent money.That's pretty much it... Unless you have another friend sitting in the driver's seat ready to turn it off at the slightest sign of a problem.unitednihilists: That's eastern white cedar. You can split that with a butter knife. That would have taken far less effort, and less time to split with an axe.That was stupid.

mudpants: I was really hoping to see a log slip under the tire and the truck roll across the street into a house.
Kuta: Best part was that he put the screw on the side with the exhaust pipe. The more wood you split, the less you'll become from carbon monoxide inhalation./and you might be a redneck if you didn't realize you could put the screw on the driver's side of the truck and put the drive in reverse.
subsetzero: Anybody else notice that he was spitting cedar?

cig-mkr: I'll stick with the hydraulic splitter Thank You.
MooseUpNorth: cig-mkr: I'll stick with the hydraulic splitter Thank You.This. Any day.
vudukungfu: I'm 58 and split 10 cords by hand with a maul this year.After bucking it up with a chain saw.That looks stupid.
