Storied History of 15 years manufacturing amphibious vehicles
PFM Manufacturing, Inc. was founded by Patrick F. Miller Sr. as a Montana C-Corporation on September 1, 1998. “
PFM was successful in developing, patenting, and introducing the new Land Tamer® 6x6 ATV to fill a niche in the marketplace for a heavy-duty, low-impact, commercial grade amphibious all-terrain vehicle.
The Land Tamer® has vastly superior capabilities over the typical plastic recreational amphibious vehicles on the market, and it was found that referencing this superior vehicle as an “ATV” simply did not do justice to the Land Tamer® capabilities.
In 2005 the name “Remote Access Vehicle” (RAV) was chosen to differentiate the Land Tamer® from other less capable recreational vehicles. Coinciding with the new name reference were new design improvements and upgrades to the vehicle that made it even more capable and more versatile than ever before. The new 2005 Land Tamer® II RAV featured taller, more durable truck or Ag tires, higher ground clearance, larger cargo capacities, and a sealed hydraulic gear drive system. Other upgrades included a simple dual knob controller, and a more powerful, external mounted water propulsion system.
Over the past decade the Land Tamer has evolved to what is now the state of the art in amphibious vehicle design. The PFM Manufacturing Inc. has caught the attention of prime military contractors as a versatile robotic platform for various military and homeland security applications. Additionally, the Land Tamer can be found in other heavy duty working applications such as seismic, oil & gas exploration, mosquito control, and humanitarian demining world wide.
PFM Manufacturing, Inc. has become the leader of the heavy duty remote access amphibious vehicle market by providing a cost effective means of travel for the working outdoorsman.
