ARGO meets current CE specification and the rollframe/cage is ROPS tested.
ARGO is capable of up to 20mph maximum speed and by fitment of a basic lighting package complies to UK legislation for registration for "agricultural" and "limited-use" road use.
Versatility ! ARGO 8x8 fitted with full hood, ROPS, winch and snow plough.
ARGO is designed for minimal routine maintenance. The engines are chosen for their power, reliability and economy of use. ARGO engines include Briggs & Stratton four cycle air-cooled unleaded petrol(2 YEAR WARRANTY) and KOHLER liquid-cooled petrol engines (3 year warranty). ARGO provides an incredible 40bhp per ton fully laden capability, which makes ARGO an unstoppable machine under almost any gradient and surface conditions. Engine power is transmitted through an infinitely variable ratio torque converter into a High/Low range of transmission and differential assembly.
ARGOCAT Avengers fitted with track system, ROPS, electric winch and half cab.
ARGO go-anywhere capability is matched by an amazingly low ground pressure of 2.1lb per square inch and fitted with 18" wide RUBBER TRACK SYSTEM down to a remarkable 0.67 lbs per square inch. This helps reduce ground damage with minimal soil compaction, even when it's fully loaded with up to six people or 1,000lbs (500kg) of cargo.
ARGO amphibians doing what comes naturally !
ARGO floats. Through its web pattern tyres it achieves up to 2mph in water. Where strong water flow demands, an outboard motor up to 9.9hp can be fitted.
