Just crazy, and that homemade splitter doesn't look any faster overall than a standard splitter.

I see the last vid of splitter to be much safer than the baler variety. But wouldn't operate either one.

Down below the last one are videos of a "screw" splitter.  My Son and came by a location where a family was using one that was PTO driven.  The next week their late Son became entangled in the screw.   :-\

Well actually my dad built a screw splitter about 35 years ago and it worked pretty good .It however ran through a gear reduction and had a kill switch safety on it .

That said though there were a lot of accidents from people hanging them on a tractor power take off .I never heard of anyone getting wound up in one but they broke a lot of arms .

I think is very good idea and very fast (split cycle ), oh yeah a little dangerous to :D.  However it could be made very safe by adding a hopper on top with a timed escapement to drop the logs into the splitter.

Some inventions in life should not be filmed, those are two of them, scared me to death and I was sitting in my chair watching on my computer at the time.     The first one left me speachless to say the least, imagine what he could do with one of these big square balers used today, with a 200 hp tractor on the pto shaft.

That's just crazy! 

I've always been interested in the Super Split style log splitter, but always a little nervous about the safety aspect of the fast cycle time.  Those 2 vids make the Super Split look like child's play  :D

They are effective though.  There are videos of some others around.  Saw one that didn't require your hands to be near the ram, you just dropped the log in.
