Heavy Metal Monsters

Weather Channel

6 x 60 mins 

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.

Each episode features the stories of two of these fearsome machines, intercut at breakneck speed so the action never stops. Witness the awesome power of the 300-foot long walking dragline as it chew through the earth a mile high in the Rocky Mountains, followed moments later by the twisted genius of  the Amphibex amphibious excavator saving an entire town from the flood of Manitoba's Red River. This is what happens when epic-sale engineering meets the world's worst weather.
