Heavy Metal Task Force provides detailed explanations of the specialized tasks for which each machine is designed and shows how they work. It also goes out to sea, into the mines, and elsewhere to show what it takes to operate them, often under dangerous conditions. As the footage makes clear, these jobs may not be glamorous, but they're definitely challenging.

There’s a growing sub-genre of reality TV that focuses on unusual, demanding, and often dangerous jobs. This series shines a light on rarely seen workers and is a worthy entry into the category. It’s ideal for the many kids who are enthralled by cars and trucks, as well as for mechanical aficionados of all ages.

Did we miss something on diversity?
