Crushing a spinning turbocharger with the hydraulic press

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/18/2021

You would think that after awhile, seeing object after object crushed in the jaws of the hydraulic press would get boring but personally, I find it to get more interesting with each and every unique thing that finds it way to the jaws of the undefeatable hydraulic machine of pure strength.

This time, the object in question is none other than a real life turbocharger. We presume that this component has seen better days and is no longer useful but in either scenario, it doesn’t really matter because it’s about to get crushed anyway!

If you have ever wondered what the internals of a turbocharger look like after it has been used, this is your chance to see them up close and personal as this turbo gives way to the magnificent strength of the hydraulic press.

Check out the video below that shows off the power behind the muscle that is the hydraulic press and tell us what you think of this demonstration. Maybe next they will get their hands on a used supercharger to squeeze to death via hydraulic press.
