For over 50 years MAX ATVs have earned a unique reputation in their class, setting the pace in terms of product design, style and capability.


Our Amphibious All Terrain Vehicles are a uniquely flexible class; they can carry up to four passengers in the vehicle, protected from environmental extremes … they can do this on land, on water and on those more challenging terrains that are neither one nor the other – swamp, marsh, bogland, mud flats, the littoral, deep powder snow, places that man, nor boat, nor land vehicle can safely go..


The 6-wheeled MAX ATV is an extremely maneuverable, lightweight and cost-effective vehicle with a purpose designed, simple, robust and technically superb skid-steering mechanism and the lowest ground pressures in their class. The permanent six-wheel drive system allows them to traverse incredibly soft, muddy or swampy terrain. MAX can be fitted with rubber tracks that allow the vehicle to negotiate even the most sensitive of surfaces. Load capacities range from 600 to 1200 lbs and all can tow up to 1000 pounds dead weight. Most models have integral cargo-carrying capacity, and the Buffalo Truck has a 53″ by 51″ dump body for more serious utility applications.


Power is supplied by either Briggs & Stratton Vanguard, Kohler Command, or Kawasaki twin-cylinder engines ranging from 480cc to 745cc, with petrol or diesel options available, all are covered by a two-year manufacturer warranty. Warranty and service work on the engines can be performed at any of thousands of authorized service centers across the U.S. and the world.


Standard features on all models include: Amphibious capability, electric start, CVT or hydrostatic transmission, headlights and tail-lights. MAX variants sport a 5-gallon fuel tank, and a Borg-Warner designed T-20 Skid Steer steering transmission.
