I have been using a cub brookfield buzzsaw for many years to cut slab wood. I have done it by myself for the most part. Years ago I widened the table. two years ago I figured out how to myke the rear rockshaft do the work of tilting the table for me.. I agree it is a dangrous outfit. Have to keep your eyes on everything.
But since I have my saw table actuated by the hydraulics it is much much safer and easier job.I did take pictures 2 years ago when I finally was able to get the speed of the table correct. I also took a video. but Ill will have to find them on my PC . I will post when I do.

If you need a lot of firewood, this is how you really get it done! www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rOMchR6g2k

I believe that one is faster than the Bobcat one (woodspliter).

All those things look like they have death and dismemberment written all over them.

Personally I would love to have a Cub Sawyer. Mostly for demo's at shows. The Cub Sawyer is probably as safe as almost any of that era that are tractor mounted. I would have no issues using it but then again I have been cutting on a saw table for decades so I is used to it. However there is no way I would want to cut my winter wood on it .. I would be tuckered out in an very short time. Safety is almost second nature - you have to have your wits about you at all times.

My bride and our kids - all 5 of them are trained on our saw table. It is essentially the same idea .. I do use an independant Sno-King on it but eventually it will get to be Cub Powered like it really should be. When the blade is sharp there is nothing quite like the zing at that blade goes through either some pine, spruce, birch, maple or some Albert County Rock Maple . now that is hard wood :-)

Only in the hands of someone who does not know how to use them. Like any tool you must learn how to use them properly and safely.

Now that is serious overkill.

Oh .. just an update. Ray has my splitter mounted on the Massey Ferguson 1040. Splits like you wouldn't believe .. hasn't found anything that will stop it and moves lickety split. Course the Massey has a much higher GPM than the Cubs Touch Control .. but hey .. I ain't so fast anymore so it is perfectly quick enough for me. I get it back in a couple weeks just in time to get some splitting done for my winter wood.
