Watch a 150-ton hydraulic press break down while crushing a stack of books
The Hydraulic Press Channel has dozens of videos in which they utilize their hydraulic press to smash everything from food to glass balls. If their content is up to their alley, you shouldn't miss this one where they crush books and film it in super slow motion.
However, this video is different from others as the 150-ton hydraulic press explodes a hydraulic line while attempting to figure out how many paper books can be crushed in one crush. Just imagine! Turns out, the hydraulic press has met its match in a stack of books.
In the description box, the Hydraulic Press Channel states that they were able to get the hydraulic press repaired in this video by fixing the hydraulic line. Apparently, this was also the first time something other than the press tools broke. If you're curious to see the whole ordeal in action, make sure you watch the video embedded above, and as always, enjoy.
