This is an exagerated test but it was fun to do!
Below is our fatigue tester we use to calculate breaking and bend ing points of our axles and the bushing wear.
But todays question is what will happen when we use totally unrealistic pressures and weights on our pedals?
John Deere vs Straitline
The excavator weighs 44,000 lbs and some change and the steam roller 12,000 lbs, Pressure applied by the bucket slam is beyond my math but the pedal took it like a champ.
Everything we make we make simple and use the right material so that we never see a warranty!
Bent but not broke or cracked. I don't recomend doing this at home unless you have acess to heavy machinery then definitly do it. Just film it all for us.
