Mining draglines and bucket wheels, crushers and ship lifts, dredgers and harvesters – these are just some of the mega machines that get the big jobs done. But what happens when big machines breakdown? Production comes to a standstill; downtime costs can be astronomical and repairs are expensive. Mega Mechanics is a new obs-doc series following Australia’s best mechanics as they tackle some of the biggest machines and the challenges of maintaining and repairing them. From breakdowns in remote mines and scheduled shutdowns at enormous industrial facilities, to using winching motors so powerful they could pull an ocean liner up a beach, this series will follow mechanics working on some of the world’s biggest machines. The stakes are high, the conditions dangerous and there’s millions of dollars on the line, but it’s all in a day’s work for our Mega Mechanics.
