I have The super tracks on my 2005 Argo Avenger, I believe they are mostly meant for snow. They are great in the snow, but use up alot of the horsepower. Tough to steer unless on snow. I have used them in otherwise impassable cattails and swamp and they work well. Tracks will not propel you in the water, you must cross deep creeks with momentum and driving your machine like it's stolen. Regular tracks may be better for general use.

If you are planning on being in deep water alot an electric trolling motor or gas outboard is necessary. Our local search and rescue uses an Argo and they find it crucial for some situations. Only thing better is a marsh master, but they are 100,000 dollars or more unless used.

I just read up on the escargo tracks, now I wish I had them, they look great and are for rough terrain and water.
