Dont think any would be OSHA approved ha
I couldn't even watch the thing until the end. All I could think about is one of them tripping or something and ...
As dangerous as the motor driven ones were the coil spring leverage powered deal looked all kinds of sketchy ha,..man needs to quit bending over like that ha
I guess anything is better that splitting wood with an ax. I have split many a cord of wood in my day. I have even used a home made buzz saw attached to a tractor that drove the belt.
While those are cringe worthy, some of those machines only need a couple guides, some safety guards, and a big red kill switch within easy shot of the operator. Then they'd be really trick.
But that’s not what they’d get (if sold to the public). They’d all get plastic guards you have to lift to put in each log, a lock on that guard that has to be latched to allow the blade to move, a control switch that wouldn’t lock so you have to step away to turn on the blade, metal guards covering every moving part, 37 bright yellow stickers warning you that you might mash a finger, bump you head, or die if you set it up on a hill, and a 200 page warning manual with fewer than ten actual instructions on running it. And an allen wrench to assemble it.
And don't forget, "This Device May Cause Cancer If Used In California"!
I watched the entire video, waiting to be impressed. Didn’t happen. Really? Not ONE of those devices were LS powered? You can’t even find a go kart without one!
The manual for the machine may cause cancer in California too.
...only watched a few minutes, but they were just doing easy straight-grained and soft wood, especially cross cuts with ax head rig. I wouldn't bother with what they were splitting. Try an oak crotch, or gnarly apple. I don't even do those anymore, but do miss smell of apple burning.
These spliters are all from
Fargo, North Dakota...
...I thought that was chipper territory...
Good news we all have a expiration date. Live life to the fullest.. Id rather split fire wood than search u-tube videos about life..
Sweet gum is the worst
never seen this in sunny palm beach
I love the manual spring-loaded one. Cool idea.
Needs to dress it up like one of those old water-sipping birds.
