Episode Summary

Richard Hammond has his hands full as he heads down to Louisiana to salvage scrap metal. He must conquer the Crane, the Claw and Electro-Magnet, all of which are essential tools used to break down oil rigs and select the reusable material. The Crane can lift up to 150 tons and crawls at a top speed of one MPH. The Claw is used to separate out recyclable materials. It can lift 15 tons of recyclable materials at one time, the equivalent of 100 sumo wrestlers. The Electro-Magnet can lift up to 4,000 pounds at one time, the same as 20 refrigerators.moreless
