    You would not get me within a mile of the death trap ! The problem is your lifting a sharp wedge with a heavy weight with nothing more than a little cable and clip. If the operator isn't paying attention while your loading.....

    And I have worked with "some" of them, SAD:(
    Somebody put a lot of time and $$$ into something that didn't need to be reinvented!!!. It's someones brain child and I think all intentions were good, but I agree with all, "SLOW" and waisting two people's time, fuel, etc....:rolleyes:

    That is a post pounder that was "adapted" to split wood. Not the best use of the attachment.

    But could you imagine the work that could be done with that little bad boy if the splitter was designed properly? Think of a beam type splitter on the end of that very versatile little arm. Crawl up, split, split, turn, split, crawl forward, split........:eek:

    That is amazing that two people and machine can split wood at about 1/10 the pace that I could with a maul.

    It does look like it is a much better post driver than splitter. I think the splitter was an after thought.

    So it takes 2 guys to be about half as fast as I am with my $900 Husky splitter? Is that what I'm to take from this video.

    Looks dangerous too.

    By the end of the day he and another guy have wood split, and not very much for the effort. Looks like a whole lot of effort, design and construction that may very well bear fruit in the form of some minute aspect of the system being used in something viable. Was that a run-on sentence?
