-The MAX Rover vehicle frame is constructed of high strength 6061-T6 tubular aluminum that is free flooding and protected from corrosion with readily available sacrificial zinc anodes. A sandblasted finish provides a good grip when handling on deck and makes attachment to the frame using Velcro straps easy and secure. The design is also modular, where the aft component can be removed for easy access to the electronics bottle, and the front lighting frame can be removed for adding custom tool packages. An optional payload skid can also be added for additional tool packages.

-The MAX Rover has been designed and engineered from over 15 years of operational and manufacturing experience. We have built it to be rugged, reliable and easy to maintain. It is an open frame design allowing quick access to all major components for inspection and maintenance. The MAX Rover has also proved to be very reliable and has been successfully operated worldwide in a broad variety of applications.


We try to provide the most up to date, recent specifications on these ROV systems. However, ROV system specifications are changing all the time, so please double check with the manufacturer to insure the specifications are correct before making a decision in using or purchasing these systems.
