It’s been a disastrous week for everyone. Todd Hoffman’s 18-year-old son Hunter runs his own team of young, inexperienced miners, but when one of them is caught operating his reel without a seat belt, the group was issued an Imminent Danger warning and fined $30,000. Todd, understandably angry, let his son steer the ice truck. In other places, Parker Schnabel prove once again that haste makes waste; while trying to move a broken bulldozer with his new tearer (Devil’s Finger), he accidentally broke its tension cannon, a costly mistake that cost mechanic Mitch Blaschke was furious.
Elsewhere, Tony Beets loads buckets onto his bulldozer to attempt to barge across the Yukon River. As he drives, he captures for the camera the dangers of overloading, too much weight up front causing the rear tire to lift – as soon as a camera mounted on the bottom of the rig shows the tires doing it. .
While some problems are easily solved, others – like organic matter in the water that forced the closure of Hoffman’s Colorado site – are not so easy. The episode is a reminder of how quickly even small mistakes can turn into big problems.
