Cutting firewood the Italian way.

Have seen this video on You Tube called " Itaglia Legna " . We have this bandsaw but not with the splitter on it.

Re: Cutting firewood the Italian way.

Incredible coordination between the 2 men on the saw and the main sawyer with the action /decision to load and operate the splitter

Re: Cutting firewood the Italian way.

Can't really see the point.... All small stuff and three people to operate it..... And someone's going to loose a arm. Buy a small processor instead
