I should have done a video crushing a 4x4 into splinters. Yeah, I tested everything, Awesome.

 

Now I think I need one, although I probably couldn't get away with it.  You said you had two, what would make you part with the second?

I had seen those used many time at scenes of accidents when I was on the Police Dept., they used them to pry doors open-nothing to it, or cut the post and lift it off.

What a toy that would be! The press and tubing bender sound like nice projects.

It would also make a nice brake.

Lucky!  :mad2:

 

Boy I could use one of them. It would make scraping easier. I bet you could make prepared iron out of a compact car pretty easy  :D

I bet each one of those units cost $15,000-$20,000 when new...But if they bought for the entire county, maybe they got a little better deal.

Neat stuff !!

"Ron's scrap metal reduction service"

Fit twice the weight in 1/2 the space.

Now, that is an idea. :thumbs:

I can't wait to see the GT car slicing attachment you make from that.

 

 

 

Those are made just down the road from me in Shelby NC. It is awesome to drive past when they are testing stuff or training people and ripping a car apart.
