You can split wood faster with a splitting maul.

Oh My :shock: A pneumatic Log Splitter? I'm scared ... very, very scared.

I've dealt with Log Splitters for years. Even slow Hydraulic ones will send the occasional hunk of shrapnel (5 to 10 pound hunk of wood) a long ways ... 10 to 20 feet easily.

I can't visualize any system that would work at the speed you seem to want, and not cause extreme forces on the machine itself.

I hate to be a pessimist, but I see a lot of unwanted carnage and destruction.

I'm more familiar with motorized hydraulic log splinters, and the problem I see is pressure. hydraulics obtain ridiculous pressures thousands of psi it might take some time but it's enough pressure for nearly any job. a basic motorized log splitter probably produces up to 1500psi, how can you that with pneumatics, your piston diameters with have to be huge and you'll waste tons of air,

I love pneumatics but you ought to go with hydralics, why don't you modify a cheap pressure washer it gives tons of pressure
