The Argo Avenger 8×8 Responder X is part of Argo’s incredible amphibious vehicle line. The Avenger Responder X is specifically designed for high-intensity rescue missions by emergency professionals of all kinds. It is outfitted with all of the tools you need to handle even the most unexpected situations with ease. Here are just five of the ways that the Avenger Responder X can enhance your ability to get the job done.
1. Built In Stretcher Mount
On unstable terrain nothing is more difficult than trying to get a victim onto a stretcher and then back into the vehicle. Fortunately, the Argo Avenger Responder X comes with rear slide-in capabilities so your crew doesn’t have to lift the stretch any further than necessary, and the stretcher can be secured for transport so you don’t have to worry about further injuries on the ride back out.
2. Simple Transportation
The Argo Avenger Responder X is designed to be dropped into extreme terrain on demand. Four pick points come pre-installed along the axles of the vehicle to be connected by carabiner and cable for transport. Any heavy duty helicopter can deliver the vehicle as close as possible to the focal point of your mission and let the first responders take it from there.
The Argo Avenger Responder X is more than just a simple search and rescue vehicle. It can easily be transformed into a firefighting tool with the addition of the pump and foam module. This independent unit sits on the back half of the vehicle providing small scale mobile support for firefighting efforts. On the other hand, the light weight of the vehicle also makes it perfect for performing operations on snowy and icy terrain without fear of getting stuck. The distributed weight of the 8×8 design allows the vehicle to move across the snow easily.
4. Multi-Purpose Winch
The rear mounted winch can be used for a wide range of purposes. It can be used for difficult extractions or retrieving vehicles that are stuck. It features a weight capacity of up to 3,500 lbs, more than enough for even the most challenging recovery missions.
5. Plenty of Space
Without a stretcher on board, the rear seats of the Argo Avenger Responder X fold up to provide additional seating for crew members. In this configuration the vehicle has a max weight capacity of 915 lbs and room to seat six people. The rear most compartment still provides plenty of space for an emergency first aid kit, small fire extinguisher, AED, and more.
With the Argo Avenger 8×8 Responder X you are getting more than a simple amphibious vehicle. You are getting a fully functioning response vehicle that can defeat any terrain. It offers flexibility for any situation you may be facing, any time of the year. It comes with all of the tools your team could need and the ability to go straight to the heart of your mission for faster response times all around.
