Anyone squat to burnout
In my gym I never see anyone squat and get pinned... but like me... haha I mean i go hard after the weight and sometimes i get pinned under the rack... but no one else does... The guys like benching weight they cant do but wont squat heavy to save their lives. Am i the only one who doesnt mind getting pinned under the weight... I mean, gotta get them legs big.

How about doing weight you can lift and not permanently damaging your joints.

I mean its not heavy i normally get to 9-10 reps. And if I do miss it, i drop in weight, guess you guys dont have the same outlook.

I work to failure on squats fairly often. I never compromise form and I always wait for a particular squat rack because the safety pins are perfect for my parallel squat and box squat.

Try the 20 rep squat routine. I'll guarantee that at some point you will get stuck, pinned, reach failure, whatever you want to call it!

I have observe the exact same thing, everyone benches to failure but they don't squat to save their butt. For a variation on squats I will start at the bottom instead of at the top of the movement or I will pause letting the bar rest just for a second on the pins at the bottom of the movement. I get stuck under at the bottom quite often having to dump the weight on the safety pins and yes I do use proper form and go below parallel I am just a sadist and squat til it hurts.

Why do 20 reps of anything?? 20 reps of a compound exercise is silly and a non-efficient way of working out. Strength/Power=4-6 reps Hypertrophy=8-12 reps. 20 reps mean you need to add more weight.

Supposed to be great for gaining mass and strength

I like doing heavy squats normally, but if I'm going to go to "burnout" I'll do it on a Smith Machine.

If 20 reps is good then surely 40 reps would lead to greatness. Especially if you own a cow.

Also depends on what you're going for. Not everyone wants oak trees for legs. I like having proportionate thighs that are muscular and defined. But my balls don't like it when my thighs get too big.
