wonder if you could get it geared low enough to work on pedal/treadle power? or small flywheel/great-wheel type deal.

I've checked around on some farmer forums - it seems that most folks that have used them, loved them, although they thought the burning gas while doing it took a lot of the fun out.
There appeared to be a lot of speculation about the danger of it.
For those that had a history of using them, they would say that certain gummy woods would go all the way to the base and then be stuck on.
Some folks said they had run hundreds of cords of wood over one, to the point that it was dull beyond further use. No incidents. They did say that they would be extra careful around the thing - just like you need to be extra careful around any farm equipment - including swinging axes and mauls.
So .... yes .... dangerous. But in the vid, it looks safer than swinging a maul/ax. If combined with an electric tractor, I suspect it would be safer and more productive.
