    Geo Metro gets shredded in manure spreader

    This 250-hp Artex CB1200 manure/silage spreader makes quick work of a Geo Metro. The Metro likely had some non-shredder-friendly parts removed, but this is still a very clever viral promotion by Artex. In GIF and short video.

    hmm blue rino should be doing this with thier tanks.....Ive had somany of their tanks that leek. bad seals, bad valves. but they assure me they all get rebuilt every time they get refiled......no they get a quick paint if needed and a new plastic sleve over the tank if the old one is dead... you can not fix stupid. I have 6 good tanks that I have refilled, not exchanged. allways look at the one they give you for exchange, look at the seal for rot ,dry,hard,cracks.if it look ok then after installing it open the valve half way and let it sit for 30 min then do the sniff test...many have leekey seals on the shaft.you can also do the soapy water test witch should be done on all instalations. do it with thevalve closed.then part open then open. look for bubbles when rotating the knob at the shaft.and all over the valve assy too.

    I do agree, you have to look them over good before you accept one. BUT I have discovered that you can swap old style or out of date tanks, for usable ones. I got 10 out dated tanks from a site I was cleaning up, exchanged them for good ones at Lowes. When empty I take the good tanks to be refilled. When you get them filled, you get 17 pounds of propane, Blue Rhino only puts 15 in them.

    yup the rino fills are short. also not all of the tanks hold the same amount either some tanks are smaller with the top coller/protector/handle being taller so they all "look" the same...and probably some different raidi to the tanks too. I have got out of date tanks from rino....yup from rino,and some tanks from back in the early 90's that had been updated and receret and new style valves..you got to watch them sneeky suckers.I get mine refiled at Uhaull.

    as far as shreading the geo....what the hell are they growing using a geo for fertilizer...cammarows?

    I believe this is a reversed GIF of an egg placed on a shredder, which is itself running backwards.
