Floods are no match for the ARGO or Centaur
Floods are one of nature’s most dangerous environments and as such it is no surprise that they evoke considerable anxiety when approached by a vehicle. While some places may allow one to avoid such nasty predicaments, others require one for commercial reasons to traverse directly through the quicksand-like landscape. In times such as these, it is important to have a strong vehicle that is capable of making it through and getting the job done. The ARGO and Centaur are vehicles that meet these characteristics. Whether it be land or flooded areas the ARGO or Centaur is a vehicle that will transport your passengers and load safely and smoothly.
As was mentioned previously, flooded areas have the characteristics of quicksand, which makes it crucial that a vehicle be able to stay on top while traveling through them. This scenario makes the ARGO and Centaur the perfect candidates. Due to their low ground pressure, the ARGO and Centaur are able to stay on top as opposed to sinking in. For areas that are sensitive or protected this is a major benefit as the ARGO and Centaur are able to minimize their environmental footprint.
The ARGO and Centaur also work well in muskeg and peat bogs. Muskeg is made up of plants in various states of decomposition with a water table very near the surface, which makes the ARGO or Centaur one of the best solutions. Groundwater Control Systems Inc., (GCS) and Pioneer Oilfield Rentals Ltd. are two companies whose job sites demand that they consistently navigate through flooded environments. Both hail from the Alberta oil sands area, a landscape in which muskeg and peat bogs dominate all other terrains. In these conditions, both companies agree that the ARGO and Centaur are the only vehicles that allows them to efficiently carry out their tasks.
