Giant Shredder Destroys Car During 'Shred Of The Month' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On its Web site, SSI Shredding Systems says it "extends the limits of shredding applications." The Wilsonville, Ore.-based business just put its money where its mouth is -- by shredding a car.

SSI's latest video in a series it produces called "Shred of the Month" depicts a 1974 VW Beetle being literally swallowed whole and spit out by one of SSI's most powerful shredders, the PRI-MAX Primary Reducer. (Hat-tip: Wired.)

This beast can shred up to 150 tons an hour. Usually, those tons are construction scraps. But in the video above, it's the ride of a brazen hippie who has parked in the boss's spot one too many times.
