    Dump truck hydraulic explosion - GIF

    Dump truck hydraulic explosion. Yes, I believe this counts as an "explosion", although I had to look it up. Definitely among the rarer explosive catastrophe vids on the net.



    Not sure what's happening here. Why is the guy running right before the explosion? Sees/hears something? Yes, he appears to jog away after the explosion. No gore here, but the driver is probably not so lucky.

    Hydraulic pressure has been known to remove fingers/hand and can also be injected thru the skin

    I didn't know this, but a quick internet search provides all the evidence necessary to back up your point. Public service message: do not look up "hydraulic injection injury" in Google Images.

    A pressure washer can do the same thing Jon. I had one remove the skin from my thumb when I carelessly allowed the business end to pass over it while holding a part I was cleaning. Thankfully the angle it was at kept it from injecting the soap and water into my thumb. It was the type of stupid mistake you only need to make once....

    There was a guy at work that suffered a hydraulic injection injury, apparently before i started working in this plant. The description of the attempted remediation was gut wrenching. Basically they skin you alive to try to clean out the hydraulic oil. My understanding is that he did not live long afterwards though I'm not sure if the death was self inflicted. This was a place with some safety standards, too previous to that I was working in a die casting foundry where trips to the hospital seemed to be a regular occurrence.

    I generally don't even like helping people with hydraulic problems over the net. Sometimes you get the feeling they want to actively ignore your warnings. In any event if people have ever seen a water jet work they should have a sound understanding of the dangers of hydraulic failures.

    When I was doing my time an idiot at a different base stuck a pneumatic grease gun up one of the apprentices arse and pulled the trigger "for a joke". Poor guy died after a month in hospital. I have had little to no tolerance for 'pranks' ever since.
