Agreed. Expect the unexpected. Like this accident waiting to happen:

I'm wondering about how that engine is cooled.

That's crazy.... I thought my old brother's wood chipper which we affectionately called the chuck and duck was bad. :lol: It didn't have any feed mechanism, It had a tendency to spit out the last few inches of a log. My other Brother who was not too familiar with it was watching it eat a limb, just before I had chance to yell to him Bam! right in the mouth it got him.

Somebody comes up with something really radical and totally impractical just to say he did it. And people are tearing it apart because of how unsafe they can be. I think I stepped in the wrong forum.

Hell, I know several people(in maine) that are missing fingers because of HYDRAULIC wood splitters. I would be more concerned that it might throw the wood at me if it hits a knot. :shock:

......and you think mining was unsafe for all the miners? I will go on the record to say that I've seen rigs like this, and some of the folks operating them were NOT worried about 'normal anything'. They wanted to split wood, load it, deliver it, get cash and do whatever they need to do. I know a concrete truck driver that lost an arm in a mill accident at 16, but because his family all worked there, no lawsuits or even the thought of one. Today he is still one of the best drivers around and grabs you with the 'Capt'n Hook' artificial arm. Ever work with a belt powered saw-rig? A chainsaw is a joy compared to that thrashing machine. Chippers are legend.....especially when they involve 'marital discourse'. Ever see 'FARGO'? If not, you should!
Whatever people can afford to make their lives easier drives the wheels of invention, so I think the user accepts the risks.

Up here, it is 'ice harvest' time and all the antique ice saws are used AND the fast spinning 36" open blades are from the 1920's to 1940's. Guys fall into the lakes(just for kicks)and it will be -15. You guys need to step back and accept things for what they are. Not everyone can afford OR want the OSHA approved version of anything. How many of you have removed the rip guard on the fancy table saws? Ever watch Norm Abrahams? He is a master craftsman and can't see with the guard in place.

BEFORE we get a 97 page diatribe going, I am merely saying "to each his own", and be damned glad everything isn't regulated.....yet. If some folks don't accept responsibility for 'Common Sense" we will have another generation of kids book smart, but dumber than a box of rocks when common sense is required. You cannot exist without some measure of common sense.....witness the last two elections. It is painful to watch..... :idea: :idea: :shock: :shock:

How about the good ol' cordwood saw? Most of them on U-tube are either dull or not spinning at the right speed. When sharp & running right they take about 1/2 second to cut a 6 or 8" log. Before you could say "zing!" you were onto the next cut. My Dad & I cut many a cord on a saw we built with a 36" blade and a 11HP Kohler engine. OSHA would puke papework if they saw it working. Here's a link to one on u-tube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbMlLfYsi2g

And that wood splitter? Sa-weet! Hydraulic ones are way too slow. :)
