 An Interesting Comparison, RTV vs. 1987 Samurai

18 to 25 miles if I read it right.

The quiet part is really interesting to me and I wonder if you could do a little "field charging" with one of those super-quiet Honda or Yamaha generators.

Not a bad price either. The eight wheel we tested has a list price of 15k with a gas engine and chain drive. Only down side I see with the one you posted is it appears to have a fiberglass body. For the abuse we give, the flexible polyethylene with steel frame is superior.

They make the point that the plastics tend to shatter in really cold weather and if you do put a hole in it for some reason it's hard to patch plastic. Fiberglass is a snap to repair.

I am really intrigued by the hydraulic drive train. I found a web site that was selling a used/rebuilt Argo. It had 268 total hours and needed all new drive chains.

I would bet that a Kubota diesel or a Nissan gas industrial engine will run years longer than a air cooled Briggs V-twin.

Wish I could afford $17,000

The price is a factor for me. I can spend 8k for the Bigfoot 6x6 for home use and some trail riding or double that for the other one. Probably won't get one at all but they are fun!

As a sidebar, another department in my company already owns one Argo and there have been virtually no problems with it. The day we test drove was very cold, running over trees and breaking ice. I saw no indication of the heavy poly body becoming brittle.

No but I will do a search on them.

I did ask Art White about something used when we met at Empire Farm Days but they had just actioned the last one the night before. Used is where I want to be at this point. I have the 2003 Arctic Cat with about 50 miles on it I use around here but it has proved fairly useless for my needs other than to pull my roller or run between the house and barn. I am going to list it for sale.

A utility vehicle will do more and I can put an enclosure on it for rainy or snowy days. The Argo can act as a snowmobile, allowing me to take the admiral into town for a toddie via the trail in front of the house.
