Argo - Its Not Your Average ATV




It's not something you see everyday out on the trail and I'm not even sure if these bad boys are trail legal in Pa. I can tell you that they look way cool and will do a lot of things the average off road vehicle won't. 

There's no specific reason for this article than to share one dream that an old industry guy has. To spend a summer in one of these critters exploring 
the great outdoors.


Why Argo
Whether it is for a commercial, governmental/public sector or personal utility application, ARGOs fill the gap between recreational quads and heavy off road equipment. ARGO will climb, crawl or swim anywhere you have to go, with the equipment and tools you need, at a cost you can afford.
Terrain Capabilities
ARGO goes where others can’t follow
- 8x8 mobility and strong-but-light construction give ARGOs the low ground pressure and traction to traverse all types of soft and difficult soils including muck, swamp, muskeg and snow
- With their add-on rubber tracks, ARGOs tread as lightly as your own footprint
- ARGOs swim or ford water obstacles with no preparation required to enter or exit
- The integral skid plate and high ground clearance of the ARGO body prevents bottoming out or hanging up on terrain obstacles


Passenger Safety
Today’s best Static Stability Factor (SSF) means ARGOs are up to four times less likely to roll-over  than traditional UTVs
- With the industry’s lowest center of gravity (CG), ARGO vehicles traverse side slopes, grades and obstacles that are inaccessible to other vehicles
- Attachments are designed, tested and engineered to minimize the impact of the Static Stability Factor
- Payloads are low  to the ground to maintain stability in motion, even when fully loaded
- The exclusive Admiral triple-differential transmission provides exceptionally smooth steering in constricted areas while maintaining traction on all wheels
“Green” mobility
In environmentally sensitive areas, ARGOs tread lightly and leave no toxic traces behind
- With ground pressure as low as 1.06 psi, ARGO will cross fragile terrain features with no lasting impact on vegetation and substrates
- ARGO's fully-sealed body ensures that all engine and mechanical fluids are well contained to avert all soil and water contamination
- The design and placement of the exhaust and electrical systems of ARGO minimize any risk of a fire hazard in dry vegetation

High Utilization
You get more value from an ARGO because you can do more with it
- Optional cargo decks and interchangeable attachments turn the ARGO into a versatile mobile platform for completing heavy duty tasks on the jobsite, farm, fishing camp or hunting lodge
- ARGO’s exceptional terrain capabilities and high altitude performance extends the range of sites and seasons where vehicles can operate productively
- ARGO’s add-on trailer vastly improves “payload per sortie” to carry 6 personnel plus up to 2000 lb 907 kg) of equipment, instruments and supplies
- Choice of diesel or gasoline power fits the available fuel type to suit remote jobsites

Cost/Value
ARGO keeps crews and equipment productive in work areas where the only alternative is heavy machinery or air lifts
- ARGOs cost far less than the heavier equipment required for equal off-road mobility; multiple ARGO units less cost than a single off-road hauler
- An ARGO vehicle allows access to the worksite regardless of the remoteness of the location for more work days so high-value crews and equipment earn more every year
- The complete family of ARGO 8x8 extreme terrain and amphibious models provides the right selection to match the needs of local customers and provide operators and rental companies with the right mix of products and accessories for maximized utilization of the fleet.
