Watch the Season 2 premiere on March 2 at 10pm/9c on HISTORY!
The 'AX MEN' are back, and they’re bigger, badder and tougher than ever. The first ever non-fiction series about the treacherous life of Pacific Northwest timber cutters, is back for its second season on HISTORY™.
Going deeper into the forest, high into the sky and even down into the sea, the new season follows two leading teams from last season along with three new companies, racing to fall the most timber during logging’s most dangerous season.
This season, 'AX MEN' picks up with two of Oregon’s top logging companies from last year, J.M. Browning Logging of Astoria and Vernonia’s Pihl Logging. Adding to the competition are three newcomers, each bringing something different to the table. Rygaard Logging of Port Angeles, Washington, a fiery father-son team; R&R Conner Aviation of Conner, Montana, which utilizes helicopters to maximize its output; and S&S Aqua Logging of Aberdeen, Washington, a team of diving loggers who fish for timber in some of the Pacific Northwest’s most treacherous waters.
Over the course of twelve episodes, 'AX MEN' will follow these five logging crews through a season of fighting mechanical failures, relentless weather and unpredictable terrain. We'll witness how loggers battle the elements, picking up where their fathers and grandfathers left off, to conquer America’s final frontier.
