Don’t start your day before you’ve watched a hydraulic press crush a bowling ball and pin

Bow before the mighty press

Matt Tate

This isn’t the first time we’ve shown you a video of a hydraulic press flattening an object, and it won’t be the last either.

The latest victims of the press are a bowling ball and pin – neither of which put up any sort of fight. The operators of the machine – who we rarely see on camera in these videos – particularly enjoy the demise of the ball, which bursts into pieces just seconds after impact. We really want to get involved in this destructive hobby ourselves.
