    Screw-type log sliptter

    I've been seeing these screw type log splitters. I am wondering if they make them for our PTO's on these little tractors. Seems like they are much more efficient and speedy. Not to mention, looks a whole lot simpler and less expensive.

    Let me know if you have a lead. Thanks.

    I have had one for years don't use it that much it's powered by an old briggs 8 hp maybe not sure they are not fast but on a pto might spin faster if you cut a lot of wood you would be a lot better off with a hydraulic splitter

    I've seen a couple on Craigslist in my area, but never new. There are quite a few videos on YouTube so they have to be somewhere.
    Do you want a turn key unit or do you want the Screw to use on something you have? The Atom Splitter, 300 Ton Splitter
    A quick Google search didn't turn up much.

    Funny that you asked this question because it was just yesterday this video popped up on my Facebook wall.

    That is the same video that had me thinking.

    They look dangerous as hell, upon second look.

    I'm not sure how well either the atom or the one one the car would work the one I have uses the tung to keep the logs from just spinning like the Kubota one has

    The 3 point without down pressure unless you had something to wedge the log against I don't think it would split

    The car on the other hand has its own weight to push against however what happened when you put a hard to split log on it and it turns into a lop sided wheel

    I run an old "bark buster" off the PTO on my Model M. It is so much quicker and more fuel efficient than a hydraulic splitter with the benefit of not having another engine to take care of. I really like it and it was cheap compared to a hydraulic splitter or spending all day swinging a maul. However, it is a very dangerous tool and if you are not used to old equipment without any safety devices whatsoever I would steer clear. Like three-wheelers, they stopped selling them for a reason. That being said, I like my three wheeler too!
