The Ultimate Utility Vehicles

Whether the job is replacing utility poles, mending cables or laying underground pipe, Argo makes sure you can get the job done. Argo pushes the limits of rugged working vehicles so working  people and their equipment can get to the jobsite reliably.

These robust machines have the load-carrying capacity and power to transport transformers, to pull cables or to bore footings on the most remote work sites. Heavy-duty and dependable, Argo's can handle rocks, hills, sand dunes and rivers while carrying up to 1,500 lb. (680 kg) of payload.

Every Argo is engineered to prevent the delays that keep other vehicles from completing their mission: less underbody damage, less overheating, fewer hang-ups on obstacles. All that and Argo’s renowned durability mean less downtime for your vehicle, so there’s less downtime from your crews.
