How Strong are Crowbars? Hydraulic Press Test!

Which is the strongest crowbar? Cheap one, expensive one or aluminium crowbar? How many tons they can take? We are going to test that out with our 150 ton hydraulic press and 150 ton force sensor. Don't try this at home! we are professional and all people were behind really strong blast shield and had personal protection equipment.

    Given they are all of similar length it probably doesn't make much of a difference, but I would be interested to see the force being applied to the stationary end to take leverage out of the equation.

    The winner is the least expensive one, you can buy over 10 of them with price of unnecessary expensive ones, you must be a superman to break them, they are strong enough to handle the job, even the cheapest one.

    I have bent crowbars, cheap ones, by jumping on them since I wasn't strong enough to get a large (large!) nail out. A bent crowbar is worthless, and it is dangerous! The Hultafors crowbar sprung back into shape after the maximum force you put on it, it was as functional afterwards as before. High quality steel. By experience and wisdom, the Hultafors or similar is worth every cent! Quality do matter if you actually use it as a tool to work with. I nowadays want to own just a few tools, but of high quality. Quantity is just a burden to keep sorted and move around, quality is a joy and no burden.

    It's the heat treatment that makes it harder I'd say the more expensive one has been hardened and then tempered to remove the brittleness. Cheap - not heat treated. Expensive - heat treated.

    You were right. Not scientific. For this test to be more scientific, the distance between the fulcrum and the point of contact with the press must remain consistent for the entirety of the test.

    you should test the sensor accuracy first. try placing a known weight (like 20kg) at the crowbar first and see if the readings of the sensor are accurate. then apply the press. I know this, because I tried crowbar application in the industry with way more than 3 tons without any bending... this looks like bad setup and messed up sensor...
