Who needs dynamite to demolish an earthquake-damaged building when you have this: monster hydraulic scissors that cut buildings to shred!

This giant 59-ton cutter has a 28-m (92 feet) long arm that turns a damaged 8-story building into a pile of rubble in just days. The clamp can exert a 300-ton pressure to cut a 85-cm (33 in) thick beam in just 10 seconds.
