Watch one of the world's most powerful shredders eat a six-foot tall truck tire

The SSI Dual-Shear M160 Two-Shaft shredder can employ anywhere from 300 to 600 horsepower to turn two 33.5-inch, counter-rotating cutters. It's The Terminator with less charm, as far as shredders go, and it is recommended for eliminating objects including steel drums, demolition waste and, humorously, paper and cardboard.

Some folks with a video camera decided to tinker with the hydraulic-drive variant of the M160, feeding it things like a refrigerator, a couch, and a six-foot-tall industrial OTR truck tire. Follow the jump for the quick video, and the most mesmerizing waste of time we've discovered so far this year.
