    I agree To many people wear long coats and long sleeve shirts. It is as dangerous as a rotating PTO shaft if not worse. You should never wear long sleeves around any rotating machine of any kind

    I actually have one! Mine is called a "bark buster" and it went out of production in the late '80's/early '90's because it was deemed 'too dangerous'. It has no safety features whatsoever; no dead-mans switch, no panic button. I run a length of twine from the coil wire back to where I'm working, but that's about all you can do to make it safer.
    After having one of these, I don't ever plan on going back to a hydraulic splitter. Once I overcame the learning curve, I can split firewood as fast as I can push the logs onto the cone. Way faster than waiting for a cylinder to return only to stand around while holding a lever and waiting for the ram to come back out. Probably easier on fuel too because rather than having to run full throttle, I end up slightly above an idle. My M's 100 cubic inch, two cylinder has the torque curve of a diesel so it loves this attachment.
    I have used mine on several very gnarled pieces of oak and maple which my friend's 37 ton hydraulic splitter couldn't handle. My M made some really cool noises as the cone bit in, and when the pieces split it sounded like a gunshot. The only type of wood it has trouble with is birch. The bark doesn't tear easily.

    I know someone is going to be asking for pictures, but right now it is burried in the back of my shed and I would have to pull my snowplow off to mount it. You'll have to wait until spring to get pics!
    '50 Model M w/electronic ignition, 12v conversion, and a 3pt conversion plus a homemade snowplow, a Deere Model 51 trailer plow, a Woods RM59 finish mower, a Bark Buster splitter, and a few other toys.
    '69 Sears Suburban 14 48" deck and 42" back blade, an estate rake, and a sweeper.
    '07 F250 XL Powerstroke, crew cab, short box, 4x4.
    '85 F150... I finally sold my very first truck after racking up over half-a-million miles on the original drivetrain.

    My neighbor owns one, and yes they are dangerous if not used correctly. Of course any splitter can do harm in a heart beat.. With the screw if the user isn't holding on tight to the wood being split .The wood will just turn on the screw till it hits the stop ,if your using the factory stop. My neighbor removed his stop, when he did I didn't stay around to watch someone getting hurt. Thankfully no one was seriously injured.
