Different machine in Bidston mate. Dont process the scrap metal there, only the light waste, all down to friction and energy buildup. The HAMMERS that actually smash all the steel up weigh about 200 Kg each and theres 28 i think. Imagine them going round at full pelt hitting steel etc, bit of energy there.

I think I've seen him doing the "Electricians War Dance", you know the one, they usually start it about 1/10 of a second after finding that the cable they just grabbed/drilled through is actually live.
