Heavy Metal Monsters   

Series 1: 6x30 | HD | 2013
Production Company

The biggest, baddest machines tackle the toughest jobs on the planet, in the harshest conditions imaginable – logging, mining, construction, shattering ice to avert disasters – nothing is too much for these monsters. This is what happens when epic-scale engineering meets the world’s worst weather.
You’ve seen big machines before, but you’ve never seen them pushed to the limit like this. The HEAVY METAL MONSTERS have to tackle storm force winds, high altitudes, low tides and raging floods.

Each episode features the stories of two of these fearsome machines, intercut at breakneck speed so the action never stops – one minute you’re mining a mile high in the Rocky Mountains, next moment you’re chopping colossal trees in Alaska.

Episode 1: Breaking the Ice

The Amphibex AE400 is a truly incredible machine - an amphibious ice-breaker, part hovercraft, part excavator - and it has a truly incredible job; saving an entire town from a massive flood. The Extreme Hagglund is an unholy hybrid of SUV and polar exploration vehicle - it has to be to handle one of the toughest commutes on the planet. It has to carry a team of specialist workers more than sixty miles across snow 15 feet deep to a remote construction site at the heart of Yellowstone National Park.
