'Ax Men': Joe Works In The Nude To Get A Raise (VIDEO)

All the "Ax Men" (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on History) are tough, but Papac Alaska Logging's Joe Linderborg is definitely one of the toughest.

Joe wanted a raise now that he was yarding, but his boss Mike Coats told him he couldn't have the raise unless he did his new job in the nude.

"You gotta bring up three more loads in the next 45 minutes to an hour naked, or you ain't getting no raise," he yelled.

So, feeling at one with nature, Joe stripped off in the Alaskan wilderness and went to work. "Easy money!" he laughed. "I'm gonna do this every day!"

At the end of the day it seemed like Joe's lack of clothing had actually made a difference to the guys' output. Mike joked, "Don't tell Joe this, but it's probably our best day logging ever."

Will Joe ever put his clothes back on?

"Ax Men" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on History.
