Build it yourself can, barrel crusher
If you've been looking fora good way to get rid of empty chemical barrels, you'll like this giant can and barrel crusher developed by North Dakota State University ag engineer Vern Hofman.
The barrel crusher mounts on a tractor 3-pt. and consists of a 3-in. cyl. with a 36-in. stroke anchored in a frame made from square steel tubing. The barrel sits on a metal base and is flattened by a cross-shaped crusher mounted on the hydraulic piston. It'll crush barrels up to 35 in. tall.
It costs about $500 to build the crusher using new materials. Free plans are avail-able from NDSU.
