Fred Sowerwine, Montana's Max dealer (Fred4dot)

Fred Sain, Yes, I like a GOOD argument. You are the one who wanted to compare the BF to the Max IV. I can't help it if RI has the ability to put a different engine in a machine and have it perform differently (better). My point was that if you want to compare the BF to a Max IV 600T (with 26" tires), you are comparing apples to oranges (they are not comparable in any area except maybe real world price). The Max IV 600T will out haul, out pull, out run, out maneuver and probably last just as long doing more.
Why doesn't Argo put a 25 hp or 27 HP engine in the BF?
The Big Foot should be compared to the Max II 600T with 22" tires (although I think the 450T and 500T with 22" tires are just as capable or more so than a BF)- The Max II 850T again puts the BF in a position of disadvantage. I think you must have had a Max II 450T when you thought about being a dealer (could have very well been the 12.5 HP model put out about 1992) because your arguments fit that machine, but nothing else. You should take a minute and look at some of the current model Max. You might just change your mind like Argoguru did (How you getting along with that Max II 850T, Jon?)
I'll ask again. Do you have a web site with Argo prices listed? Does any Argo dealer put their prices on the web? If so, give us a link.
