The thing don't like is they are usually doing 2-300 rpm and when they snatch there isn't much u can do
Also heard a few stories of people pushing the log onto the screw with either hand or foot the log splitting and the limb doing the pushing being impaled with no e stop in reach
I’ve split many tonnes of rings with a 3pl mounted Hycrack cone splitter on a Ford 3000. They are safe as houses as long as you are sensible and use them properly. Keep plenty of the log to the right (it turns clockwise, so subsequently forces than side of the timber down into the table - if used correctly it is impossible for it to spin the log) and only present the timber as a flat ring (ie with the grain vertical). And don’t put your fingers under it!
You’d do well to get it to drill into you - anyone who could achieve such a feat definitely wouldn’t be safe with any tool that converts timber into a smaller product howsoever powered)....

We had a screw splitter on the farm i worked on in the 1980's. It was ok but if it was willow or any other soft wooly wood it was useless. It just drilled a hole in it

I was going to post something similar.
A farm the other side of the village once stated it was the most dangerous log splitter he`d ever used, it later came out he was presenting the logs end on to the cone, and having to put his foot against them to stop them spinning :ROFLMAO:

yeh when they burst there's no telling where's safe to be stood (y)
I`ve never had one fly off a screw splitter, a knotty gnarly piece on a hydraulic one, on the other hand.... your comment would be perfectly true.

Sorry but there is no way you can convince me a spinny thing you put your hands near Is good idea
I have always been taught spinny things and body parts don't mix
I agree with druid on the end of a dipper is a good place

the "table" on my thor splitter has 10mm deep bits of thick walled pipe washers welded to it -really helps keep the logs from slipping if they are not cut square

take a look at this for wood destruction :oops:
(20+) Marketplace – Dipperfox Stubbhyvel | Facebook

" A new effective way to get rid of costly stumps! 20 seconds / stump!
This is a rational way for companies that handle a lot of stumps (1000+)

The stubble planer drills through the stump and their roots and pushes all remnants into the ground. In this way, further handling at the felling site after the work has been carried out or transporting away stumps is avoided.

Rec. Machine weight: 12-30 tons
Oil pressure: 180-350bar
Oil flow: 100-220L
