From running a farmi with possibly the longest distance from roller to flywheel of any similar capacity machine out there i cant see much chance of springing back.. if it fits through in the first place it will remain compressed til chipped.. theres nowhere for it to go.
Stubs on the other hand may cause the rollers to bounce, but there shouldn't be any stubs worth talking about if snedded properly.
I saw wear around the keyway on the shaft of the top motor (had it off for a seal change) and would imagine this is from years of back and forth movement. Surely design should dictate either hydraulic blow off or key shear before breaking the shaft.
I would argue that hopping up and over stubs is more harmful over time than the odd jammed fork.
