    Default Centaur

    They look pretty rugged! 3-cylinder diesel model has 25" tires, 8" clearance, 28 mph, only downfall (and a big one) is it weighs 2100#s!

    I think I'll stick with my wheelers for now though.

    The only thing I know is a guy out here hunts with one and raves about the good fuel mileage and plenty of power in the mud.

    The Centuar Is an Argo Avenger on Steroids. It is more of an Indutrial Machine with more steel or aluminum on the body and Hydorstatic drive versus the Chain drive on the Avenger. Yes, it weighs a ton. I hear they are alot louder than the Chain versions.

    Default That's what I thought

    That is what I thought before I went out with a large group of them that also consisted of wheelers and Argo/Max's. These things go anywhere and get you there Warm and dry so you can have more time on target hunting not shivering. Then on your way out you warm back up while hauling the whole thing in the back along with your gear, no trailer. Try doing that with a wheeler.
