Now im not suggesting that I would ever commit such a terrible and illegal action as destroying a compactor, but if I wanted to go about doing something like that(which i don't of course) does anyone have any strategys for putting those lovely machines out of commission?

If the control buttons are on the out side smashing them or cutting the power to them with insulated bolt cutters or wire cutters would work.

speaking from experience... not mine of course... no nono, not me.... (ahem)

cut the hydraulic hoses. they are expensive and a bitch to replace.

and if it is stopped, go to the back and find the pins that unlock it. next time it's flipped on, trash explosion... out the back, no injuries, just a big ass mess.
check for big bro on the roof though, especially on second or third run.


ALL COMPACTORS MUST DIE!!!

Wow That certainly sounds like something those evil scoundrels who would consider committing such an injustice would say. I will sure look out for kids doing that to stop them!

Be VERY careful cutting hydraulics.
I've seen tractor hoses rupture and i've never had anybody I worked w/ injured, but the possibility is there.
Hydraulics are put under INTENSE pressure, that's how they can lift such heavy things, if you put a pinhole in one it will potentially squirt out hard enough to cut through flesh. If you don't wash out a wound with oil in it properly, the oil will cause gangrene to ensue in the wound.
I'm not making this shit up. Be very careful for your own good around hydraulics or there could be a dead punk by the back of the walmart.

yep, long reach. thanks murt, that's why I said it shouldn't be running. it will still spray everywhere, but under much less pressure... i mean, so I hear. around... from other people....

crazy glue buttons or anything that seems needed and used.. just epoxy or crazy glue that shit..

doin it to locks too helps


rationally, it shows everyone how much resources is wasted by locking garbage up then having to unweld or cut locks apposed to just fuckin letting us have the "garbage" society wastes...

very nice, "last night i was dumpstering some shit from the rei by where i live and they have like 5 or so dumpsters and one huge trash compactor and i found a nice rock climbing line threaded metal with some rubber thing around it and two clasps at the end real nice so i left it by the dumpster while i went in to go jack a sleeping bag (which never ended up happening) so frustrated i walked out because of the damn dude by the door and walked around to get my rope. it was gone sadly looked everywhere back in the dumpsters gone it was all good though im sure whoever found it will use enjoy its use for whatever. so i walk over to thebig trash compactor and i was sitting there thinking about just bringin a whole tool set and taking the whole thing apart some night"

Disclaimer: the story above is not of my doing for i would never commit such horrid acts and crimes against over production and wastefulness caused by the callous implementation of the economic system known as capitalism.
