    I am impressed and scared at the same time. It did make short time of the huge logs but I can imagine the many downsides to owning and operating one

    Wow, brings a whole new meaning to monster miter saw. I'm with blades in his post above, you'd HAVE to be hitting dirt and rocks every time you plunge that thing through a log, unless you only cut so far down through the log. It's a cool thing to see, but you'd have to be friggin nuts to own and use it!

    Why? it's not like it's going to flip that 3-4000lb tractor over. Probably safer than a chainsaw actually. Just nowhere near as versatile and I'm guessing a fair bit more $$ too. Be great for scaring the kids on Halloween too. :eek::p

    Maybe Prof can use one of these to "scare off" tresspassers from stealing his wood off his property!

    A simple cant hook would roll that log onto something to keep the saw out of dirt.

    make sure the family and pets are IN THE HOUSE when firing that thing up!
    is it much faster than a big saw with a sharp chain?

    People can sure come up with some scarry stuff... I would hate to hit a big chuck of metal with that blade...ouch.
    Hope he has a good air cleaner on the tractor as well....

    It looks like that blade is spinning just outboard and just inches forward of the operator, at high speed. If that blade hits something heavy and metal, couldn't it send shrapnel into the operator? I see there is a plexiglass shield, which would stop sawdust, but that thing looks like an industrial accident just waiting to happen.

    I agree Brian. I'd want steel between it and me.
