My guess is that more energy is consumed operating the splitter than is retrieved from the log. Make compost.
I saw the promo on TV the other day. It kind of reminds me of back in the day when they were promoting the "roll your newspaper into a log" devices. I don't know if those ever worked or not either.

Not powered by a log splitter but the same concept. I agree with Bob, let it rot in a pile. Better yet, cut the tree down and burn it, then you won't have to rake leaves next year.
I don't believe in taking the bull by the horns. I took a goat by the horns once and that was enough excitement for me.

I like the idea
I am impressed by folks who are creative. Will this be a viable product? Who knows. Maybe yes, maybe no. Up here a number of years ago they were making furnace fuel bricks out of sawdust from local mills. The sawdust was delivered by truck and stored loose in the basement. Bricks would be made and then stored to dry awhile prior to burning. Each brick probably gave up 1/2 hour of heat ... the loose sawdust however was a bit of a risky idea. It worked for a while.
Two hours burn time isn't too bad ifn you really had the time to make the logs.

Hey it is some what like pellet stoves. There is a guy in Unadilla or there about making pellets from hay and brush from abandoned fields.

The concept may be feasible on a larger commercial scale at locations where yard debris is collected and available in extremely large quantities.
I don't see the concept as economically viable for the average home owner. The system demonstrated produced one log in 8 minutes or 7.5 logs per hour.
I have an excuse. CRS.
