Swamp Buggy

This ambitious compact cousin to the Marsh Buggy was designed with unique attributes for use in the swamps and is used primarily for the transportation of personnel and geophysical survey teams. The Swamp Buggy conquers and creates a right-of-way in its path. Few obstacles prevent proceeding on a straight course forward.

The Swamp Buggy is also fitted with a winch for pulling various equipment such as skid pontoons, swamp boats, and numerous other uses.
