THE BEST Demolition

Reapr Versa TAC Pry Bar

Reapr Versa TAC Pry Bar

This mid-sized pry tool offers greater leverage than pocket-sized pry bars, but at 10″ long, it’s still small enough to toss in a backpack. It includes a sharp cutting and prying blade, ripper hook, multi-wrench, and nail puller, all set into a full tang stainless steel bar with 6″ textured handles for maximum grip.

Top-down Demolition

Top-down Demolition

In order to safely tear down the defunct Mülheim-Kärlich nuclear power plant, demolition crews installed a remote-controlled excavator machine at its top, which gradually nibbled away until its height was lowered from 531 feet to half its height. The remaining structure was brought down by breaking its supports.

FPV drone fanatics Rotor Riot managed to score an amazing opportunity to fly – and then dive one of their drones right into the site of an old power plant as it was being imploded, thanks to the guys at Total Wrecking & Environmental. The resulting footage, while brief, is truly epic.

LEGO Demolition Machine

Tearing down LEGO buildings usually requires plucking bricks off by hand. But Shadow Elenter’s approach is way cooler. He built a crane to do his demolition, using LEGO Technic parts and 18 motors. It can lift items, knock them down, and claw or break them apart.

Silo Roof Demolition

To make way for new buildings along the waterfront in Aalborg, Denmark, this old silo had to be demolished. They first removed the roof, using a series of timed explosions. The resulting explosion was wonderfully satisfying. Video by Dronefoto Nord.

To remove an aging overpass in Nanchang China, a veritable army of Hyundai excavation machines lined up and worked to rapidly demolish the old structure – removing the entire bridge in about 2 days, and reopening to traffic in 56 hours. (Thanks Hubert!)

Premature Demolition

(PG-13 Language) A construction worker in Houston, Texas was using his excavator to help gradually dismantle a parking garage, when the whole building unexpectedly fell at once. Fortunately, he backed up just enough that he managed to walk away unscathed.

Slow-Mo Bridge Demolition

The old bridge over Lake Marble Falls met its maker as the Texas DOT conducted a controlled demolition of the structure. Photographer Kirk Drummond captured the explosion in glorious 300fps slow-mo with a RED EPIC camera.

Gradual Tower Demolition

Gradual Tower Demolition

A unique demolition method called Taisei Ecological Reproduction gradually dismantles a building one a floor at a time from the inside. It might take a while before they get all the way to the bottom though.

Knocking Down a Silo

Knocking Down a Silo

(NSFW: Language) This guy has the unenviable task of taking down an old grain silo with nothing more than a hammer. Incredibly, everyone survives this demolition-gone-bad without a scratch.

Slow-Mo Pillow Destruction

Slow-Mo Pillow Destruction

Destroying things in ultra-slow-motion can be a beautiful thing, as in this footage of a pillow being ripped to bits at 1000 frames-per-second, set to the musical stylings of The Cloud.
