The Log Crusher is a hazard that appears in the snow-themed levels in Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure. The log crushers are giant logs that will crush Crash if he runs under one while they are pounding. Crash will be able to make out a log crusher by the pounding sound and size of the obstacles.
The ground underneath the log crusher is cracked, indicating the position the log crusher will descend itself. When Crash comes across one of these obstacles, he should wait until the log crusher is ascending back to the ceiling, then run underneath them before they pound themselves again. This task can be tricky when numerous log crushers or enemies are around. If Crash is crushed by a log crusher, he will lose a life and be transported to the last checkpoint. An obstacle similar to the log crusher is the rock crusher.
- In The Huge Adventure, Crash can destroy the log part of the crusher by running into it while he has invincibility active.
