Trouble with reality shows is they ain't real. Rhonda has caught me watching me some Timber related or restoration show with no volume "turn it up she says so you can hear what their saying" i don't want or need to hear what they are saying  I just enjoy the build or the scenery. Most of those shows are geared towards entertainment not even trying to educate,so take them for what they are(entertainment) and if your not entertained shut it off go do something else.

Oregon OSHA did cite the "Axe men" way back when it was first filming in Oregon. I was working for them at the time. (1990-2010)  The show was used as evidence of their safety violations.
I just watched my first "Big timber" last evening and if a person has worked in the NW logging industry (1969-1990) there definitely some parts that are less than real but it was still entertaining and great scenery, Personally I liked the old auction equipment he had and used.
For a small operator he has quit a variety of machinery from sawmill, road building and logging.
