DO THEY REALLY FLOAT?
Yes, and the tires move them along at about four miles per hour.


ARE THE MAX 6-WHEELERS HARD TO MAINTAIN?
No. Motors are serviced by your Briggs & Stratton, Kawasaki, or Kohler dealer. Transmissions rarely break down and you can send them to the factory for rebuilding. Your major servicing area is chains which should be lubricated and adjusted regularly.


DO ALL 6 WHEELS DRIVE?
Yes. And, most important, there is no disengagement from one side to another as on vehicles built with a differential drive. Both sides of the MAX are fully engaged in forward or reverse and drive independent of each other.


HOW DOES THE MAX COMPARE TO A 4 - WHEELER?
Our MAX 6-wheeler is the next step beyond a 4-wheeler. We have 6-wheel drive, they have two or four. We float, they don't. We keep you clean and dry, they won't. With tracks, we are great in the snow, they aren't.

HOW WELL DOES IT WORK IN SNOW?
With just tires, it will handle up to about 14 inches of loose snow. With tracks it will handle almost everything.


WHAT KIND OF MUD CAN I GO THROUGH?
It's all arithmetic. Our standard 21" tire has 105 square inches on the ground....six tires means 630 square inches on the ground. A MAX II weighs about 670 pounds which means its ground pressure unloaded is about one pound per square inch (psi). A MAX IV weighs 770 pounds which puts its unloaded ground pressure at 1.2psi. A human exerts eight psi (about eight times as much as a MAX) and a 4-wheel drive truck about 28 psi. In other words, with a MAX, YOU CAN DRIVE WHERE YOU CAN'T WALK!


HOW DO YOU STEER?
The MAX has two steering levers. You pull back the right one to turn right and the left one to turn left. You pull them both back to stop. It's all hand controlled with the throttle on the right hand steering lever. You can turn in the radius of the vehicle.


HOW ARE THEY SHIPPED?
By common carrier (freight line), on a skid, in a carton, fully assembled. Just put in the fuel, connect the battery, turn the key and off you go.


WHAT COLOR ARE THEY?
The upper bodies are available in tan (Max II, Max IV and BuffaloTruck) or green (Max II and Max IV). The bottoms and seats are black. The brown and green blend in well in the out-of-doors.


WHAT ACCESSORIES SHOULD I BUY?
The roll-bar is the most popular, followed by the windshield, and then the convertible top. However, all can be installed later.


WHAT IS THE STANDARD EQUIPMENT?
All MAX's come with the following: Headlights, taillights, T-20 Skid Steer Transmission with forward, neutral, and reverse, trailer hitch, electric start, ammeter, vinyl/foam seats, high density polyethylene body .280" thick top,. 365" bottom, 12-volt battery.
