This is where I am at; I am dying to get in this, but am not likey to be coughing up $20k anytime soon, just not going to happen. And if I was going to do that, I'd be more inclined to buy 2 Max IIs w/ accessories (1 23hp and 1 16hp) with that money. More fun w/ the kids to my way of thinking, being as I have around 10 years or less left having fun with the younger ones before they go off to college. After good discussions with the wife & the younger kids, we have come to the conclusion that we would have more fun driving 2 than just riding around 4 people on one unit. Being a passenger is only so much fun, sooner or later everyone wants to drive a bit.
This being like hunting, fishing, sports, or just hanging out, is mostly about having fun with them, building memories, and hopefully imparting decent values, responsibility, and good habits. I'd rather buy 2 Max IIs than even "allow" a video game into my home. I'd rather keep $1,000.00 of sporting equipment in the garage than have a single $10.00 video game. I want them out, actually doing things, getting exercise, developing NORMALLY.
When they are all off to college, or out on thier own, then I will be more inclined to buy an Argo and cough up $20k for myself.
The Argo looks like a more refined unit, but math is math. LOL!!!... It is really hard to argue with a bottom line while a man still has kids in the house, especially if those kids are ACTIVE.
