Flywheel Wood Splitter

Did this video help you?

Pleasant Lake Pirate: You'd never split my wood with that rig bud

ironlionkalo: why would anyone build one of these? there are so many other cheaper, better, safer options

rob robert: That.s fine for that type of wood , but what about real stringy wood like elm ,locust ,hickory. Do you have to then switch to hydraulic ? 

Tony Beeler: what kind of heavy wheel is that and where can I get one???? that's one clean built piece of equipment

Stefan Brinkmann: The Americans are as stupid as they are cool or have fat eggs - at least.

tapper88: Best "widowmaker" splitter I have seen, Still doesn't appeal to me at all considering how much more effective and safer a hydraulic splitter is, you would have to be a complete inbred to hurt yourself using a hydraulic splitter, all it takes with these is one slip or one weld letting go and it will split you in two instead of the wood. Very nice job indeed though, and i love the touch of using a small electric motor to power it. most of the ones I have seen run off tractor PTO and that ups the crazy to eleven.

Gary Triplett: Wow, You did an awesome job on this. From all the ones I've looked at, yours stands out as the best to me. Thanks for sharing the video with us.

MustacheVerra: This looks like a really good and safe enough machine. Probably can't handle the really big ones but I'd get me one of those and use something else for the big ones.

Frank B: This is no more dangerous than most of the tools in the wood shop. Don't put your hand in the wrong place and you are ok. 

Liberty4Ever: It wouldn't take much to run this quiet electric powered wood splitter with a solar panel.

Fred Flintstone: That's one fly wheel you have there sir.

Mark Fuchs: Best splitter I've ever seen. Would you sell me the plans to it? Thank you

Stefan Brinkmann: Best Hand-Splitter on Planet. One bad move in a wrong moment and -- CHACK!

RimfireRat: if all these splitter I see everyone screaming are too dangerous. May I observe if they are too dangerous for you ,you probably shouldn't be running a chainsaw either .Glad out fore Fathers weren't such sissys Innovation built this country

bojengels1: The cage is a great idea. Looks pretty effective and a lot safer than the last video I saw of this design!

nicholas cremato: you should sell the plans

Sarah Woods: This looks a lot safer than the other one I saw, thank you for taking their idea and really improving it. THIS i might consider haha, also the way you put the wood in looks so much safer as well!

eirefile: When we are finally able to move out in to wood stove country, I will definitely make one of these. I plan to include some additional protection against getting things caught in the wheel, a passive cutoff switch, and a swivel cup holder for my beer can. For safety reasons.

MTG_Colbalt: standing there thats no fun

Coffieman5150: THATS JUST CHEATING! also I want one.

rontax1972: What's up with all the safety hounds on these videos? Do they think everyone is an idiot? I'm pretty sure it's common sense to keep your hands and "COMPLETE FACE" out of the way. Very nice machine, Kevin!

Vinny Degeorge: Nice.. I want to make one.. What size & weight is the wheel?

Ty Cetto: It hisses at him...

douglasjreynolds: This is the world's second most dangerous log splitter.

Dust Devil: Looks good, but seems under-powered. I found an old Caterpillar drive wheel (think it's off a D-12) that has the mass to work as a wheel, but am going to use a 10-hp gas engine on it. Doubt mine will look as good, nice paint on your splitter.

Wooden Tool Man: This don't look too bad.

Steve McGranahan: nice one

rob robert: OK try that on Elm or a stringy wood ?

poisas69: just a small thing, U HAVE TO CARY FEW TONS OF WOOD to split :) its much easier to set the woods on the ground and have this semi hammer axe and go over those :) i have split more than 3kubic meters of wood in less then 2hrs i would like how long it would take for you to carry those 3 cubic meters to this machine only

Casey Cornelius: The good news is it does have a safety cage. The bad news is the video game generation will probably get hurt using it. My guess is that young people will get their hands too close to the maul. But what do I know, I've only had thirty years working with tools.

MrJgstoner: this video should be re-named: "freakIN WOOD!"

Garretthierisser: better than the other killingmachines on youtube, it looks very save and effective!

UTubeGlennAR: Guess it is 115VAC powered or perhaps 230VAC? I like seeing how far your hands are back compared to the other FW splitters I see where they stand the round on it's end. Also like seeing your extra half step back from the FW too.... Thanks for sharing....

radbcc: Excellent. would like a close up of the maul welded to the flywheel ...

luli gelanca: In Deutschland dürfte diese Maschine verboten sein.Ich vermute stark,daß diese kein TÜV-Freigabe bekommen würde.

Jersey Tom: does it work on green wood too or only seasoned log rounds?

Oldbmwr100rs: That is brilliant, but still, I don't like the though of what might happen if someone isn't careful! But that's log splitters for you,and that's one of the fastest I've seen,nice job!

FarmerTom08: Good idea this !!!!

Wild Gorgh: great tool and wonderful design

nickv122497: I like it

TestECull: The only way this could be any better is if you power it with an antique engine and a big-ass flatbelt. Love it!

gwtube: It's so simple a child should use it!

Snake Plissken: That is slick as crap man

MrLeonard55: How much is one?

boardingpass04: i like this one good job way to be unique
