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 kindI had one,,, for a week,,,,
I decided that the splitter or my arm was gonna leave,,, the splitter left,,, first,,, :dunno:
I seen one of those on a consignment auction this fall.. Didnt see it sell, but wish I had a dollar for everyone that looked at it and said "thats a accident waitin to happen". :mocking: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'.
I don't think mine is too slow; 6 cord of hardwood in a day is perfectly respectable. :good2: I used to split my whole winters worth of firewood in a weekend. 12 cord is a lot of firewood... If it went any faster and I might have to sweat!
