I have heard about a redesign on the Mudd Ox, anyone know about this? Also does anyone have any insight into the long term durability of the old (original style) Mudd Ox? perhaps someone out there has some long hours on their machine.
I am considering buying one, but I do not want another expensive machine, which requires lots of repair/rebuild every 250 hours or so. My current ARGO Conquest while I love it, can not be called anything except a "project on wheels".
I am in the survey business in the mountains of TN and we try to use the machine almost everyday to haul equipment in and out of the mountains, We even have a dedicated GPS unit with 15' demountable tower installed. We put about 15 hours per week, so in a few months I have another 300 hours,
The Argo then needs, chain, bearings, brake pads (twice) tires and belt. I was considering a MAX Buffalo (I know it will break down just as much, but the pickup bed would sure be nice).
The expense of the Mudd Ox may be OK, provided
the machine holds up well.
