About Low Impact

Canada’s Offroad Experts


articulatedsteeringCreativity and problem solving are necessary at Low Impact.

“To the best of my knowledge, we have the largest civilian fleet of Hagglunds BV206 next to the Canadian Military.”

– Troy Gordon, President

Military Grade Engineering

Originally built by the Swedish Army, Hagglunds were phased out in ’91 in favour of an armoured version, yet there are still thousands of the machines in storage. Low Impact began importing them to Alberta where their team of mechanics, often including ex-military professionals, studied them, stripped them down and learnt to rebuild them – including the research, design and development of new parts and components.

“We tear every nut, bolt – everything – apart on these machines and start from scratch,” Everything gets inspected, replaced and rebuilt – with mostly new components we’ve designed. When were done it’s like an entirely customized, new machine.”

– Troy Gordon, President

Impressive Maintenance Program

This means, Low Impact, is self-sufficient with parts and repairs. Every part necessary for their Hagglunds in available on location. They also have a fleet large enough that if one machine experiences trouble, there are others ready to replace it.

“We take pride in our expertise and knowledgeable staff at Low Impact. We have an incredibly thorough maintenance program, that allows us to operate at the highest level of safety and efficiency.”

– Troy Gordon, President

Detailed Safety Routine

Before and after every job the machines are inspected, cleaned and gone through with a fine tooth comb to ensure we don’t encounter breakdowns out on the job sites. That is the last thing you want to experience in remote locations.

“We aren’t always strictly business; we use the Hagglunds for lots of other things as well. We’ve gone on adventure trips, fishing and camping, I’ve driven Army Veterans in parades and even ditched the limo and took a Hagglunds to prom.”

– Madison McLeod, Business Development
