And, as usual, Sain could not post without taking a shot at Sowerwine. And on it goes. I guess thats what makes it a horse race. I don't own Max or Argo, but I will have one or the other soon. I've test driven one of each, both older models ('96 6x6 Vanguard, '99 Max IV). From this I found that the Argo was easier to drive and that the Max was faster (16hp Argo vs 18hp Max), but more cramped for legroom. Looks like it would be pretty easy to move the seat back a couple inches. I had a harder time getting used to the steering in the Max. Both apparently float well. The Max owner bought his to access the Pearl river swamps in south Louisiana
with his hunting buddies. According to him it worked well with 4 passengers and the only problem he ever had was running into cypress knees. I observed the Argo crossing a fast current bayou with two up last hunting season and it looked pretty tippy. Could have been the small tires.
