I can't be the only one that wants to know where I can get that breaker bar. That's stout!
I had a Proto breaker bar that was probably that strong. before I got my 1" torque multiplier there were numerous times when I had used a 6 ft pipe as a cheater although mine happened not to be a bent up piece of scrap pipe.
But if you notice on the ground there appears to be at least one breaker bar that had failed to live up to the abuse
I have an old Mustang Skid Steer. The motor drive sprockets torque to 800-850 ft lbs. The service manual has a table that references Body weight and cheater bar length to achieve that torque.
It sounds laughable but I bought it cheap because it wouldn't pull on one side. That nut on the drive motor backed off and sheared the key in the sprocket. After I made a new tapered center to weld into the sprocket, I made damn sure I got it to the specified torque.
