Default Most dangerous tool in Croatia

I thought you fellas in the U.S.and Australia might get a kick out of this.
Here in Croatia during autumn and winter you can see variations of this machine driving around to cut up peoples firewood. They even drive in the city center of Zagreb, usually with the blade still attached but not moving.
I'm amazed that I have not heard a single story of anyone being injured by one despite that most of them look homemade and deadly !
Banzek is the name.

I tried to look at the picture but had an ad over the picture! The ad was for Woodworking Plans and Designs - Woodworking4Home. I moved the mouse over the ad to see if I could get an "X" to close it but no luck. How do we get rid of stuff like this in the future?????

That's odd, I don't have any trouble viewing it.

That is great!! My uncle could use one of those last time I looked at his huge pile of logs for fire wood!

We are over-the-top in regard to safety in NA. Try to legislate for stupidity...

Yah

but bandsaws without safety guards still scare the s*** out of me. I have nightmares of the band coming off and taking my hand with it. Thank you legislators for taking care of my stupidity.
