    ATTEX did build an 8x8 It was sold to the military as a tank trainer. Many have returned to the general population. They were built around 1974, based on the 400 CHIEF powered by a JLO 400, sold complete with roll bar and 5 bolt hubs. They were three seater machine with one person up front as the driver. SIDE VIEW, FRONT VIEW, ENGINE VIEW and a second machine PHOTO

    Four PHOTO set of a ATTEX racer, used late model POLY body without a trans, just forward only
    most used large horsepower snowmobile engines, were used for motocross style racing, Really worthless for any use except for track racing. AATV racing exploaded on the scene for a couple of years, mostly in the states of PA and OH, then it died a FAST death, never to reappear again. For more information see ROUTE6x6 BLAST FROM THE PAST Section. I have
    available a VIDEO TAPE which shows approx. 20 min of this style of AATV racing see ROUTE6x6 SHOPPE Section Additional inside PHOTOS of the above racer

    Attex did build a small camper ment to pull behing your AATV. Check out these two cool Magazine articles both of which are located in ROUTE6x6's MEMORY LANE section. One call "Lets go ATV camping" the other called "ATV tent camping"

    Nice PHOTO set of the ATTEX CAMPER

    Remembrances of an ATTEX ATV employee.         See STORY

    Ever wonder what the old ATTEX factory looks like today, Now thanks to Bob Chesarek, we can. I Had to drive into PGH. today so I took the digital camera and took a few shots of the Glenshaw plant. Things sure have changed over the last 30 years. I don’t remember the big green addition to the building. Must have been added later. The yellow lettering up on the front says TRIANGLE MACHINE CO. That is Rt. 8 in front or Wm. Flynn Highway as it used to be called. The first 3 pictures are looking from the North bound lanes and the last from the South bound. Next time I get into the Lawrenceville section of the city I’ll try to get some shots of the UNITED building where the plant moved after they left Glenshaw. Thanks to you : Bob Chesarek PHOTOS

      Brochure and PHOTOS
      A little History of the Snoopy from George Carter "Here are photos and brochures of Coot's Funmobile line, Searcher,Snoopy, and Red Barron. I designed and built the prototypes in 1965 and sold them to Coot Industries in 1967. Coot manufactured about 2000 units before the company's demise in the late 60's. This was the first 2wd "mini" buggy design which eventually evolved into other four wheel ATVs. As I told you I'd like to find one for my collection." George Carter

    John Gower was the inventor of the ATV. He passed away a few years back: thanks Philip Osborn


    Wayne Edel Grandson of John Gower wants to share this story and PHOTO with us all, He is looking for more infomation
    to complete his families history:

    The Story:

    My name is Wayne Edel and I am one of the grandsons of the late John Gower, inventor of the first production ATV, The Jiger. But this is a history I have only been made aware of lately. Growing up on a farm in Southern Manitoba we never saw alot of 6 wheeled ATV's, but we had may off road vehicles of the 2 and 3 wheeled variety. The first one my Dad bought was the TRI-CAT. Built in Manitoba it ran on an 8hp Briggs & Stratton and had
    a belt & chain drive. It was very cool for a young kid like me. At this time my grandfather, John Gower was divorced from my grandmother and we heard he had made some kind of 6-wheeled ATV out in Toronto, but out of respect, we never asked much about it. It was only since my grandmother pasted on did we discuss more of the family history.
    Then I saw a picture of the Jiger for the first time. I have always been around motorized recreational vehicles, but this thing was different. It was like family. In a family history book my aunt put together, there were many great
    photos of the Jiger. I have spent much of my time since searching out info on the Jiger. Through this I have met some very nice Jiger owners who have helped me with my research with pictures and info. Thanks to all of you.
    My short-term goal is to put up a web site with factual and technical information about my Grandfather, the Jiger, and the Jiger Corporation history. My long-term goal is to fully restore a Jiger exactly as it would have been on the
    showroom floor and to have a Jiger on display in the Ottawa Transportation Museum. This is not only a fantastic piece of Canadian history, but it's a fundamental piece of ATV history. Any one with pictures (old or new) or info on JIGERS and that would like to help, you can EMAIL me. I also want to support anyone who wants to restore Jigers if I can, but if you have one rotting in you back yard, let me know.

    Thanks to Richard Clark for all your info and help.

    Really cool MOVIE " This was filmed at the Jiger Corp. factory in Rexdale ON. Canada. This was during the late 60's. I was not in this film but i did quite a bit of the testing back then. I did make it onto the cover of the Breton Versatrek brochure. That was late 69 early 70." Sent in by Rick Payne

    2001 MAX Brochure:

    Model year 2001 MAX has introduced a new CAMO color on the bodies:

    Model year 2001 MAX II 800-T Just introduced:

    NEW 20 HORSEPOWER KOHLER-POWERED MAX II-800T THE MOST POWERFUL TWO-PASSENGER SIX-WHEELER ON THE MARKET ....ALSO THE QUIETEST FEATURES INCLUDE... Kohler Command 20 horsepower, 624cc engine with hydraulic valve lifters for low maintainence and an accelerator pump on the carburetor for quick throttle responce. This is the same engine that powers our MAX IV-800T and Buffalo Truck. A stout 32 ft. lbs. of torque is generated at 2500 rpm. Re-designed engine bay makes the vehicle extremely quiet. New muffler arrangement offers a full 12 decibel noise reduction. The muffler is inside the body of the vehicle instead of being tucked under the rear fender area, so the vehicle is considerably quieter and the muffer will not get caked up with debris. Airflow is routed through internal ductwork; cool air enters one side of the vehicle and hot air exits on the other side, resulting in better cooling to the engine, the exhaust system, as well as the entire engine compartment. Screens are provided on all air vents to minimize debris entering the vehicle. Re-designed cargo area. The cargo area now has a flat floor accross the width of the vehicle, rather than having a raised engine cover on one side with a lowered floor on the other. The engine cover now consists of a flush-mounted hatch that is secured with 1/4 turn screws. The standard cargo rail encompasses the entire cargo area.

    PHOTO Hey Richard! Here are a few pictures of my restored SKIPPER. I found it in an open garage and it had been there for approx. 7 to 8 years. I brought it home and found the chains and bearing cap were in poor shape. There was no seat or exhaust. I figure the motor was original, the rings were seized to the piston, I pumped automatic transmision oil into the cylinder and about a week later the rings popped, I rebuilt carb and after about 30 years the motor is running fine. I added an electic starter, built a roll cage, repaired cracks and painted, put on a new seat. The pictures show you what she looks like now.
