Exploration
Argo knows a thing or two about exploration, after developing the mobility platform for the Canadian Space Agency’s new lunar rover. Just imagine where Argo can take you now, here on earth! Extreme terrain and extreme weather are all in a day’s work, with the durability and safety-conscious design to take on uncharted territory and then get home again.

Surveying
You have to travel the land to get the lay of the land, and Argo is the one way to travel anywhere you need to go. With a footprint that’s lighter than yours, Argo's let you tread the most sensitive or treacherous terrain more quickly than you can on foot, and let’s you keep more tools close at hand. Whether you face dense bush or deep water, Argo’s 8x8 mobility keeps you moving.

Road construction
Argo XTVs are built to lead the way into new territory and open the road for others to follow. There’s no need to stick to the old trails – Argo makes its own! Survey and camp crews arrive safely to even the most remote sites with equipment and supplies in tow to get the building under way.

Drilling support
The exceptional load capacity of Argo XTVs means more cargo gets delivered faster on every trip. Argo delivers up to 3,500 lbs of personnel, supplies, equipment and parts over every type of terrain in all kinds of weather – so you never keep production waiting! Turn your Argo into a mobile tool shop with add-ons like winches, generators and jib cranes. Argo's don’t just take you to work – they’re part of the team!

Environmental
“Do no harm” while you explore and report on fragile vegetation and soil structures. Built tough, Argo's are engineered to tread softly. With their minimal ground pressure, the impact of the Argo vehicle is actually lighter than an adult’s footstep! Their fully sealed body protects the environment from any contamination by vehicle fluids, while measures to contain heat and sparks keep fire hazards to the minimum in dry seasons.

LOOKING FOR MICHIGAN’S NEXT BIG OIL AND GAS FIND WITH AN ARGO

The oil and gas business has been a force in the Michigan economy for almost 100 years. While drilling activity peaked in the late 1980s and early 1990s, when oil and gas companies went after natural gas in a layer of the earth called the Antrim Shale, there are still plenty of operators out there like Dynamic Drilling, who rely on their ARGO to give them that competitive edge, in an industry where you’re always just one find away from striking it rich.

Commercial Applications - Vehicle Solutions
Crews and equipment have to travel miles through challenging terrain to prospect new drilling sites or inspect existing ones. Helicopters or exppensive tracked vehicles may be able to get the job done, but at what cost? Today's cost conscious industry leaders rely on ARGO vehicles to get the job done in extreme terrain conditions. ARGO vehicles can transport people, equipment and supplies or cables and utility poles to remote work sites.
