Effective, buy how often would it have to spin the log before spitting it into your face before you gave up an bought more conventional log splitter?

That looks like it could be a bit dangerous

The ones here have a plate underneath to HELP stop spin. We do "Not" use one ourselves   We take enough risks

we have one of these cone type spliters,had it about five years ,it has split thousands of logs. it is on a bench  and is pto run.twice as fast as a conventional splitter ,and will split notty logs a lot easier than a conventional spliter, totally safe if used correctly.

this has always been my favourite. The large wheel has some sort of steel wedge welded onto the large wheel. I keep looking for the Emergency stop button but im sure its been left at the farm house in the kitchen draw.
