13 Minutes of Cars Getting Crushed to Smithereens

In this video, watch 13 minutes of car-crushing action.

Numerous contraptions are designed to obliterate these scrap heap vehicles, such as ridged, spiky, hydraulically powered “pancake” plates, bailing presses, and section-crushing machines that break them apart for recycling purposes.

No word if salvageable parts were removed from some of the vehicles depicted in the video, with one sequence (from 2:01) showing usable oil splattering out.
