No More Free Candy: Giant Car Grinder Eats A Whole Van

November 9, 2015


This is a video of a car grinder eating a bunch of vehicles, including a whole free candy van. Although I assume the cars had their engines and transmissions removed first (although these grinders are perfectly capable of eating those too). I liked how it has a special upside-down magnetic belt to separate metal scrap from the rest. I thought that was pretty clever. Now throw a humanoid robot in there and we'll conduct an experiment to see if people feel empathy for it as it's ripped to pieces. SPOILER: I will not. I will cheer and throw candy like I'm on a parade float.

Keep going for the enemy body disposal unit of my dreams.

Thanks to Bronzey, who agrees you should be able to rent these things by the hour for when you just want to destroy everything in your apartment instead of moving it all. Just park it outside my balcony and I'll throw everything over the railing.

    mmmmmm van smoke! don't breath this.

  • How long before the next "Saw" installment (or any other horror series, really) shows a human in that thing?

  • Johnny On The Spot

    Anybody seen Greg?

  • Gene Kaufman

    I can only imagine the physical power behind this thing.
    The way the van was being held up in the preview pic made it look as if it were a toy.
    Man I would not want to step in one of those things.
    Or be anywhere near it.

    That van looks to be the size of a Transit Connect (the tiny cargo van). They weigh roughly 3500 pounds or about 600 pounds less than a 2011 Crown Vic.

    Damnit, I left my sunglasses on the dashboard.

    This is really a pretty terrifying machine.

  • NynjaSquirrel

    Imagine what it would do do a body....

  • The_Wretched

    they have similar machines at animal rendering plants.

  • MustacheHam

    I imagine this is how a cannibal would make a human smoothie.

  • Jenness

    I'm trying NOT to imagine that - but I kept thinking about someone in the car and gahhhhhhhhhh
