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.
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.
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.
nicholas cremato: you should sell the plans
Liberty4Ever: It wouldn't take much to run this quiet electric powered wood splitter with
a solar panel.
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.
Ty Cetto: It hisses at him...
MTG_Colbalt: standing there thats no fun
Coffieman5150: THATS JUST CHEATING! also I want one.
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
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!
Vinny Degeorge: Nice.. I want to make one.. What size & weight is the wheel?
450rhino1: One question. Here in CANADA we use only hardwood for winter wood. Is it
possible to split hardwood on your splitter. Nice job on the build, looks
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!
douglasjreynolds: This is the world's second most dangerous log splitter.

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
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
dave johnson: That wood is splitting way too easy, wood doesnt split that easily, wonder
what type of wood? (Hardwood, cured and dried)
USAEVANTOLICO: NO SECURITY AT ALL !!!!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN LOSE YOUR COMPLETE FACE !!!OH MY !
Warren Peace: I have never heard one so quiet. Looks high end and works the same. Great
Richard Cole: I like my hands and arms too much for this death machine
MrTechnophile: Love it! I'd like to buy plans to give me a head start on adapting to
whatever wheel I can find locally. How heavy do the frame and splitting
anvil have to be? How did you build the wheel drive? It does look a bit
dangerous but probably safer than swinging a maul or a hydraulic splitter.
The danger zone is stationary, predictable and small. His hands never go
into the splitting zone. For a hydraulic splitter your hands go through the
Rob Bijl: @kevincavedude Do you have any build drawings you could send me or some
measurements? I like te machine!
tuggit1: Thats cool!!!
mitchamus: great job!
mksboysal: this is so cool, I love it.
mcpheonixx: Love the design but I know for a fact that the oak around here won't split
Sebastian Rockefeller: That looks like a quality build, very professional looking. Kudos on your
craftsmanship! Think I'll stick with my axe though, $2000.00 buys a lot of
