how much argo for $3500
HI, I am new to argo's. I need a vehicle to take me over terrain that is just a bit too tough for the average atv. I am thinking that a 6x6 might do it. There is an ad on a local site for a 6x6 argo with electric start, winch and supertracs for 3500. Ad says it is in `great condition' and has had recent maintainance. Does this sound like a reasonable price for something decent? If it was an atv I might expect to get a decent bike for this price. Is this true for argos too? I do not know anything about argos . What kind of maintianance should I be concerned about. How much should you have to pay for something that will last a few years with minimal repair? What questions are important to ask when buying a used argo? What common problems should I look for ? Warning signs? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Look at: Tires, slack in chain,holes in hull, wear of slack adjusters, general appearance (has it been maintained or cleaned up for quick sale)
Take it for a ride. Listen for loud bangs when the breaks are applied one side at a time (this is an indication of worn sprockets or stretched chains)
What year is it ? I recently traded a 1994 Suzuki King Quad 4x4 even trade for a 1990 6 X 6 (complete with new bottom hull that I had to install) So far I've sunk close to a grand into various parts and haven't even looked at engine tune up yet or tires replaced......So do the math. I figured the Bike was worth $2500.00.
For the questions to ask and what to look for be sure to use our Used ATV Buyer's Guide. For $3500 if you aren't in a hurry I would watch Craigslist and find a Bigfoot in great shape with very few hours or anything 2000 or newer model year. You see them often in the $4000 range and if you call around there are a lot of people that are needing the cash right now.
Welcome to the site.
I'll sell you my 01 for 3500. 460hrs. and pretty well taken care of. PS it's not the camo one in my AV
