Just wondering if anyone else here has an Argo- Max - Mudd ox- attex or other amphibious toy? I plan on picking up a 2002 argo bigfoot with the 18 hp B&S motor and ya Im gona tow it with the ridgeline. Anyone else have any AATV toys? Please post photos of AATV's-AATV's with ridgelines...ect Whats your experiences and whats your favorite 'type' 'brand'? I have always wanted one since i was a child, and rather than replaceing my bike, I thought me and the oldest son (4y/o) would have some fun in the mud. Cant wait to try it on the hill climb :)

That's what I want new 750 fuel injected is awsome but the 6x6 is ok for now. We need to get together the sister states and ride. Find some mud. I will put some bids together next couple weeks. You have any action media?

I remember years ago, my neighbor used to have a Max amphibious 6x6, I always wanted to get one but never could afford it. By the way Max 6x6's are made here in Buffalo, NY.

Fe likes your more than mine :( but she said I can upgrade whenever :) I have a 400 ex with big bore kit, and more mods than I can count but I like the way the Argos drive. I can't wait for tracks, how does it go in the snow?

It goes great i can hit pretty fast speeds in it on snow with the tracks alot faster then with out the tracks on pavement, and as long as you dont hit anything hidden under the snow then its pretty smoth a little jerky when turning fast untill you have it down. the only part negative about the tracks are is you can drive on pavement with them. I haven't had a chance to go in a lake/pond with it yet, im waiting for the right time.

Looks good. By the way, how do you get this thing out if you get it stuck and you're in the middle of the swamp?

So i upgraded my fuel delivery system to my Argo:

Tell me what you guys think

Fuel pump (2-3.5 psi) steady state


Toggle switch with safety cover in off position


Handle bar with switch in off position


toggle in on position


handle bar in on position



So far my testing has made me very happy. I have not had any of the fuel starvation issues that i have dealt with since i bought this machine. I have found that it is more responsive after long periods of high load (the bowl is always full when the extra pump is running). There is also an extra filter installed before the pump to ensure long service :)
