Build it yourself can, barrel crusher
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.
