Hmm, the trick works on GNU/Linux.

Yes, it's a bit strange that on 26.0.50 prin1-to-string can go up to
almost 60000, while `read' gives up at 4600.  By the way, for future
reference, I suggest adding a length count to the "Success!" output; I
got confused for a bit when seeing C-M-x easily succeed up to very large
depths (which is because it binds print-level to a small value).

(let* ((print-circle t)
       (max-lisp-eval-depth most-positive-fixnum)
       (max-specpdl-size most-positive-fixnum)
       (deep-object (make-deep-object 6000))
       (string (prin1-to-string deep-object))
       (result (read string)))
  (when result
    (message "Success! (%d)" (length string))))
