At this point, it almost seems like with all the things being crushed by a hydraulic press, that we have forgotten that these kinds of machines actually have a purpose in the real world outside of making YouTube videos.

However, that isn’t going to stop us from checking out just about anything and everything that this heavy duty machine is able to crush and conquer.

This time, it’s all about putting pipes in the jaws of the hydraulic powerhouse to see how they stand up to the extreme pressure. As you could probably imagine, if you have seen other videos like this, the pipes didn’t really stand a chance to start with.

Instead of fighting the good fight, they almost immediately fold and crumble to the pressure of the press. Check out the crushing power in the video below.
