I would like to throw my opinion in here. Having owned an Argo with the control levers and a Max with the control levers, the Max is much more controllable going up and down hills for me. From what I have observed of the new Argo steering system with the handle bar I think it is a huge improvement over the two control levers. I have watched Chuck run his bigfoot up and down hills that I would not have attempted in the old steering design. After switching to a Max IV I like it considerably better for control especially going up and down hills. Being able to slip the transmission while going up a hill is such a good benefit to me. I did endos in an Argo twice while going downhill. Basically I was on a hill that was way too steep or had a drop off and the hydraulic brakes worked too good and locked up and I flipped. In the max IV I run up and down the same hills without a problem.
