Pinser was a triangular wedge shaped machine with a hydraulic crushing arm that competed in Series 7 of Robot Wars, and was built by the Davis family. It lost both of its battles because of mechanical breakdowns after attacks on other machines.

Pinser was unfinished at the time of Robot Wars. It is unknown if Pinser was ever completed after this.

DesignEdit

The insides of Pinser

The robot had a 4-wheel drive, featured a powerful crushing arm and was armoured in titanium TA10. Its crushing arm was powered by hydraulic fluid, which proved to be flammable in both of Pinser's battles, resulting in two defeats. It also had a self righting mechanism while its high ground clearance was protected by polycarbonate side skirts. Although its weapon was strong, and its wedge was low, Pinser suffered from a high centre of gravity, a low top speed, as well as proving to be unreliable in both its battles.

In the early stages, Pinser grabbed hold of Kronic the Wedgehog's front flipper and pushed it over a flame vent, and into the already struggling Cobra. After The Kraken broke the three machines apart, the double crusher machine attacked Cobra, who appeared to be immobile. Pinser followed with a similar attack as Mr. Psycho drove over Cobra. By now it was apparent that Pinser had immobilised itself, having burnt out over the flames, so the Refbot counted both machines out of the Seventh Wars. They were tossed by the arena floor flipper together, then put on the Drop Zone together, where a television was dropped on the two.

Pinser also competed in the Crusher Crunch Up special event, up against R.O.C.S. and Mantis. In the battle, Mantis got in the first attack, pushing R.O.C.S into Mr. Psycho's CPZ. Pinser then used its crushing arm on the front of Mantis, and held it over a flame vent. After dragging it away, R.O.C.S. clamped onto the side of Pinser, causing minimal damage.

Mantis pushed Pinser against the wall, almost tipping it over before the pit descended. Pinser surely pulled off the most powerful attack of the fight, crushing deep into the front end of R.O.C.S. The three machines drove to the other end of the arena, where a lick of flame caused an explosion of hydraulic fluid from Pinser. The trio were stuck against the arena wall until Cassius Chrome split them, where it was evident that the winner (the only mobile machine) was Mantis. Pinser broke down over the same flame vent that it did in its Heat J battle.
