WATCH: Hydraulic press machine decimates hard objects in seconds

/ 04:24 PM June 27, 2016

One invincible and robust machine can destroy everything you’ve worked hard for in just one push.

A series of videos from YouTube channel “Hydraulic Press Channel” features a hydraulic press machine in a small hydraulics factory crumpling and pounding valuable objects such as coins, wads of money, and art sculptures.

In the latest video uploaded on Saturday, Lauri Vuohensilta, a Finnish man, narrates how a metallic container stacked with tons of paper bills and an art craft can be crushed in a span of seconds with his prized machine. At the start of the video, Vuohensilta boasts that his wife thinks that his Hydraulic Press Crusher would be wrecked with the metal container. But after he flicks the machine’s switch, the opposite happened.

Vuohensilta asks his audience if “it is better to stash your money in a safe, or invest it in fine art.”


The video has racked up nearly 400,000 views and a legion of suggestions from YouTube users, including one who requested to crush a Barbie doll or Uranium and another user who implored Vuohensilta to shatter “anything English,” in reference to the recent “Brexit” poll result.

Surprisingly, Vuohensilta has become a hydraulics “demigod” since he launched his YouTube channel in October 2015.

According to a report from the Huffington Post, YouTube recently awarded him a Silver Play Button because his channel effortlessly attracted more than 100,000 followers.

In his other “crush” videos, which drew millions of views, his machine has obliterated a mighty bearing ball, silver coins, two repelling neodymium magnets, non-Newtonian fluid and reinforced sand, among others.  Gianna Francesca Catolico
