Never seen a hay baler-log spitter.  I think it works better as a need to get the timing right for making a bale.

I must admit it cracked me up though when it stalled it and then things started flying off.
All animals like feeding time.

Poor bugger got several warnings from that thing but does not seem to be catching on, I figure breaking the angle iron off was better than getting the block of wood in the face. Perhaps one of those pto slip clutches would help a bit but I would hate to encourage him.

I grow up using one simular to the first one, never got hurt. You just have to be sober when operating. Btw ouers was made of a Bedford truc gearbox and a axle that was modified. A lot safer than the screw type splitter that has been illegall to use by the Norwegian Labour Inspection

Basic prototypes without guards tend to be dangerous. If that machine had a set of fingers that held the block out of the splitting chamber until the head was in the back position and a bit of guarding it would be safer than a table saw for most people. The way it is now is almost suicidal.
