Fishing and waterfowl hunting enthusiasts agree that the ARGO is the better way to go.
Unlike traditional off-road vehicles, the all terrain, amphibious ARGO floats without vehicle
preparation and the special webbed tires actually work as linear propellers in water.
For safety, we recommend wearing helmets and eye protection.
When operating in water, always wear approved Personal Floatation
Devices. Always remain seated while in the ARGO.

Designed for those who truly appreciate
the great outdoors, the amphibious ARGO
is the essential off-road vehicle for hunting and
exploration. ARGO allows you to travel with
ease through the toughest conditions imaginable
including rugged terrain, hills, water, deep snow,
and ice. Challenging terrain will suddenly become
a pleasure to negotiate and the ARGO’s low ground
pressure tires minimize the impact on the environment.
So go on, spoil yourself. Take your friends and all the
equipment you need to track the best game. You’ll still
have plenty of space to take home whatever you bag.
As an amphibious all season vehicle, the ARGO combines
many of the advantages you get from a snowmobile,
4x4 ATV, 6x6 UTV and a small boat.

WARNING: All operators appearing in this brochure are highly skilled ARGO drivers. The ARGO is a powerful
off-road vehicle and can be dangerous if not properly operated or maintained. Before operating ARGO for the
first time, read the ARGO Operator’s Manual thoroughly to make certain all details and recommended driving
procedures are clearly understood. Do NOT allow any individual to ride in or operate ARGO without first reading
and clearly understanding the procedures outlined in the Operator’s Manual. Do NOT allow any individual under
16 years of age to operate ARGO. Do NOT attempt maneuvers on terrain beyond your skills or beyond the
capabilities of ARGO. Do NOT operate ARGO on highways, or any other road system. For safety, we recommend
wearing helmets and eye protection. When operating in water follow standard boating safety procedures, always
wear approved Personal Floatation Devices, and do not stand in a floating ARGO. Operating your vehicle on
ice-covered bodies of water can be dangerous. Always consult your ARGO Operator’s Manual for detailed safety
precautions. Follow all instructions that appear on the CAUTION and WARNING plates on ARGO. Do NOT exceed
the recommended MAXIMUM load capacity under any circumstances. Do NOT operate ARGO unless all occupants
are seated and all cargo is securely fastened down. Drive with CAUTION and good sense at all times.
