What happens when an offshore wind turbine needs to be transported across thousands of miles or raging fires threaten to consume your town? Instead of dialing your emergency local emergency hotline, you might want to try calling on the Heavy Metal Task Force.

Digging, mining, drilling and soaring - heavy and unique machinery have a field day as these amazing machines and their elite crews take on some of the planet's most incredible and dangerous engineering challenges.

From rescuing a passenger ship in frozen Arctic waters to transporting a fully assembled Airbus A320 wings, each episode features three different missions for our mechanical superheros to tackle. When millions of dollars, hundreds of lives and even entire cities are on the line, you want the best of the best. You want the Heavy Metal Task Force.
