Watch This Hydraulic Press Crush A Bunch Of Balls

YouTube is an amazing place – where else can people make a living shooting video of stuff getting destroyed? One of our absolute favorite things on there is Hydraulic Press Channel, owned by a dude in Finland. He works at a machine shop and thus has access to a hydraulic press, a machine that provides slow, steady pressure. It’s typically used to pinch and compress metal, but this dude has other ideas.

His videos are gleeful orgies of destruction, where his press crushes, smashes and wrecks objects from cell phones to giant gummy bears. In a recent video, the dude decided to let his machine go nuts on a variety of balls, from a regulation basketball to a massive rubber band ball. Do they survive? Buddy, nothing survives the hydraulic press. This thing’s a force of nature.
