    ive seen so many of those home made contraption on the web and each one is more dangerous than the next. Comical to say the least and I bet most if not all are from across the pond.

    Cool or Crazy?

    I can't decide if that's just ingenious or crazy as hell.

    I know if I was running it, I'd either cut off an important part of my body or the wood would whack me in the head and knock me out. . .

    I can like the efficiency even as it scares me. . .

    I like it! He’s using his tractor to make his job easier. Be nice to see him buck up a little bit bigger log. Probly mangle the contraption. Or hisself

    You have to admit it is a good thought, just not thought through on the safety factor. In the US OSHA would have a field day with that thing. No guards, All the bolts are not on the drum, no shut down button, no shield on his face. The list could get scary.

    When I was a kid, (tired of shoveling) I cobbled together a home made drag auger.
    I don't think you would have approved of it.

    Kind of my thought as well.

    Pretty nifty idea and resourceful as well.

    Yep, seems very clever and very dangerous in its current form. But if you add some safety features, ensure limbs (of the human variety) couldn't become part of the process, it seems like it could work well!

    It sure cuts wood

    No doubt it cuts wood. I could see it as part of a wood processor where there is a feed mechanism and safety shields. In it's present form, it reminds me of some of the old sawmill, pallet mill, shingle mill equipment which were simple, worked well and took off body parts without missing a lick.
