Well that answer would be on a person to person basis. Is your son accustom to operating equipment? Long splitters work pretty slow and any person will common sense should be able to operate one as far as how they function. The real danger is some logs don't just split, they almost explode. Your son would have to recognize when he was splitting one of those and stand clear. Last week my 27 year old son put my 19 year old daughter to running my log splitter without my knowledge and when I found out I went immediately there only to get there too late and she had gotten knocked down by log splitting violently.

Wow, what kind of wood do you split? I've never seen one fly apart that bad. I split mainly pine, though, with a little aspen, box elder and russian olive.

My place is mostly oak and hickory but hickory is the worst to explode.
