Don't see the problem with that, so long as you keep far away from it, and not stand in direct line of fire of the wood, steel ladder thing, spike and truck - all will be well.

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...

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.

ok, ill meet you in the middle on that one.   "equally dangerous"..

The 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.

That...was damn sexy to watch. I don't need that much firewood, but if I did, I would get one.

Anyone notice at the end the screw stalled? Welcome to the world of open differentials. Had he a limited slip diff he'd have split that log much easier.

Someone needs to market this on QVC, now.

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.

I use one of these. A heavy weight slides down a bar to the wedge, while the wedge slides along another bar to keep the wood in place. It takes only slightly longer to split with it, but is far safer.

I was really hoping to see a log slip under the tire and the truck roll across the street into a house.

First, as someone has already said, that was pretty splittable wood. Try that with oak or locust or something and it gets much harder.

Second, as much as he's having to toss the wood around, it's probably almost as much work as using a go-devil, assuming you know what you are doing and can hit your mark.

That said, I don't miss having wood heat only. Not one bit.

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.

The amount of effort to pick up, swing and bash until the screw bit, and then chuck away the logs didn't strike me as significantly less effort than splitting takes.

mudpants: I was really hoping to see a log slip under the tire and the truck roll across the street into a house.


No shiat.  A couple of times it spit a piece near and I winced.  That was clearly a design flaw that wasn't thought though all that far.

OSHA Irony Inspector:

*  Spinning spike of death with ungloved fingers 1 cm away?  Check.
*  Truck gearbox held in neutral with duct tape and parking brake replaced with prayer?  Check.
*  Cigarette dangling and hanging on for dear life?  Check.
*  Helmet?  Um, no, so that's a $1,000 fine to teach you some safety dammit.

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.

And you might be a fancy cityslicker, son, if you didn't realize that the carbon dioxide plume from my cigarette actually opens a can o' whoopass on and cancels out the carbon monoxide blowing in my face from the tailpipe.

In the time it took for the video to load I could have had all that wood split with an 8-pound maul. Safely. That "idea" was retarded.
 
2013-11-28 11:50:30 AM
I've split firewood.

This is farking rediculous.   Especially when he kept sticking his leg and/or hand near the spinning log to "unstick" it.    Use a farking axe or wedge and hammer.  Farking Stupid level: Cig in his mouth the entire time.

Anybody else notice that he was spitting cedar?
 
2013-11-28 02:46:29 PM
these things have been around for years. Though, I think they are more common in europe. They are usually mounted to a table top and are belt driven with an electric motor. But you have these wheel mounted guys for splitting in the field.

the biggest issue the guy is having is that the logs he are splitting are too large and he keeps going in on the bark side of the split.

amoungst other issues at least.
 
2013-11-28 02:56:54 PM
I got a cold shudder watching him push the wood into the screw with his knee.

If the wood slips, and he ends up pushing his leg into the screw, it will split his leg the same as it splits a log.
 
2013-11-28 03:03:27 PM
BAH.. just have a neighbor call the police to report that you have stashed some pot in your logs in your back yard and have THEM split the wood looking for it..

I am sure you do realize that at idle this truck makes much less than 200hp.

Yeah, subby is way off the mark here. If you don't like rednecks just say so. This link isn't helping your case.

Yeah, I wouldn't really trust myself not to fark up and take my foot off with a maul/axe.  And I like the motorization. I'd probably buy one of these though:   http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200326288_200326288

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.

I have  always credited splitting wood with a maul for why I am a damned good line-drive hitter, even at age 52. I've probably swung a maul 800,000 times over the course of my life, and have never cut myself.

I was waiting for a log to go under the tire and come flying out the other side but I like your idea too.
