The bigger one actually looks safer as you have a few seconds to position the log, the small one is spinning too fast for me to even think about attempting!

Did you notice he was splitting straight grain wood? What happens when you run into a knot???!!!!

These are about as bad as the old spiral splitters that the use to hook up to tractor PTO's or run off of the rear axles. I can see one hitting a knot and PING!, instant wood catapult.

Split a lot of wood on one of those tapered screws. Don't recall anyone getting hurt with it. Sure beats a maul on the tough stuff.

You definitely have to maintain your focus using one of those machines.... I like to split wood by hand....
