It has been called North America's most dangerous job: the remote logging camps of the Pacific Northwest. From individual loggers working with saws and axes to high-powered mega-mills, today's lumber industry is a fusion of ancient tradition and modern technology.
HISTORYs long-running hit series AX MEN returns for Season 8 as the loggers take on this deadly job to earn their cut of the timber fortune. The battle for green gold is more explosive than ever with two new crews joining the pack of hungry loggers, making this the toughest, most dangerous season yet.
In this action-packed, 20-episode series see the Dreadknots and Chapmans battle over a half-million-dollar log order. Shelby the Swampman uses an airboat to search for a treasure trove of logs in a legendary lost canal and Rygaard tries to haul out the biggest log on their site a mammoth six-ton cypress.
Other highlights include a race for Triack Resources before a storm threatens their operation, the Zitterkopfs trying their hand at Tractor-Jousting and Papac taking on their most daunting site yet as loggers fall through ten-foot holes and the crew pulls some of the most treacherous turns of the season.
In this hazardous, high-stakes logging contest, there are more than bragging rights on the line.
