Got An Old UTV and Drove it Straight Into a Lake!

This week on Finnegan's Garage Ep. 146 - Redbeard's Garage practically restored this old Argo 8x8 amphibious UTV and traded it to me for a pile of speed parts and an old square body Chevy Suburban 4x4 that I'd never driven. After test driving the Argo for about 5 minutes we decided to try and cross my local lake in it. It went about as well as you'd expect. lol

Go give Redbeard a follow and stay tuned for more adventures as we hop up the Argo for more speed and fun!

Thanks for watching

You can also get snow tracks for them and you can mount an out board on the back

Ah the Argo - the machine that isn't really a good boat, nor a good UTV.

Awesome. If you get a dual wheel kit it wheel drive in water better and more stable. They make a track kit for them also.

I'd bet you could make outriggers that fold down from the cage to give it stability in the water....

Why does white boy have 666 on his boat? Is he being cute 999 flip it. Is it a competition number? So, what’s the reason for the number 999? Bet he has no explanation for 999... advertisement for 666? You be the judge.

There was a mod (manufacturers parts) that gave you a small rear prop. It was never really designed for large water like that, but they made a prop that goes on for people that like to push the envelope. No idea if they sold many, or if any are kicking around. Tyres are on the wrong way around!

I had one of those about 5 years ago for hunting pigs and trail riding. They really are a piece of shit, the transmition screens at you All day long and the exhaust covers the passenger with noise and smoke, that's why your one is up high. Well see how long you keep it.

My Dad had a Argo dealership in the 1970's, us boys would load the demonstrator on the back of his pickup and take to the lake. It was the high powered 6 wheeled one and could do around 50 mph top speed. We had a blast except in mud it would sink and sit on the bottom, wheels just spinning. Got kicked out after tearing around the campgrounds too fast. Good memories with it.

Hi Finnegan - I have one of these couple of tips - if you're going to be messing around on the concrete - over inflate the two centre rows of tyres and it will turn much much better. Also - if you flip the wheels in the second to back row of wheel so that the tread pattern is reversed - it will steer in the watter much better in reverse. Also (you probably noticed this by now) there are two bungs under the rear floor to stop it from flooding and sinking. If you get water on the drive belt - you will get stuck till it dries out. hope this helps - cheers .
