This programme takes the viewer on a journey to three continents to observe some of the most visually exciting outfits and rigs that could be seen at work anywhere in the mid-1990s. It begins in Israel's Negev Desert where impressive doubles run at 100 tonnes gross. The next stop is Grand Rapids, Michigan to view more of those unique eleven-axle combinations - including rare HME tractor units - that are such a feature of that State's trucking scene. Then off to Spain where the crew films two massive Arbegui-owned Hayes WHDX 6 x 6 heavy haulage tractors hauling a 340-tonne pressure vessel, giving a gross weight of 580 tonnes and some headaches for the route planners. Finally, in the Nevada Desert near Las Vegas the viewer is entertained by the sights and sounds of massive, aerodynamic 105ft long 'bullet' doubles engaged in the movement of aggregate.
