The unicorn log splitter is one of the craziest but extremely simple splitter designs I have ever seen. It’s basically a giant spinning tapered screw that you shove a piece of wood into by hand and it digs in and splits the wood. There are models that attach to a tractor PTO and even one that is designed to attach to a car wheel. You attach it to your lug nuts on one of the drive wheels, jack the rear axle, put the running car in gear and you have a wood splitter.
I in no way recommend this type of splitter at all. This is extremely dangerous. One slight mistake with a unicorn wood splitter and you can easily be severely injured or killed.
The videos below show a couple unicorn splitter designs in use. One of them is the car wheel design. Although I don’t recommend using them it’s worth watching the videos and seeing how well they actually work.
