Argo 8X8 750 HDi

 

Fish With Jim Outfitters provides the safest ice fishing transportation with our Argo 750 HDi. Our Argo is outfitted with a custom heated aluminum cabin, studded tracks, winch, all the power, maneuverability and light ride to safely travel the frozen lakes. Argos have extremely low ground pressure making more frozen lakes and streams into clear ice ways for quick, safe, easy transits. Even if the ice lets you down, our Argo will keep going with its amphibious capability.  The rubber tracks propels the Argo through the water until, when the ice is thick enough, it can claw its way back out, keeping you safe and mobile. Argo is the most versatile vehicle for ice conditions. On rugged ice packs, ridges and slopes, Argo’s low center of gravity, even when loaded with supplies, protects our passengers, making for extreme safe ice travel.
