Top 3 Quad Bike Advice Tips

Quad Bikes

Multi Tasking

Almost 20% of FMG’s quad bike accidents claims happen when the rider is performing another task while riding, like spraying or moving stock. A small lapse in concentration can lead to collision or worse, a rollover. When using the quad to muster, always be conscious of the ground ahead of you and be willing to let the stock get away, rather than putting the quad in a compromised position.

Park the Brake at the Gate

Almost 20% of FMG’s quad bike accidents claims have happened when the rider is not on the bike. This usually happens when the rider is getting off to open or shut the farm gate. Remember to use the park brake when getting on and off your quad bike to stop it from getting away.

Quad Bike Pre Check

Doing a pre ride check will ensure your quad bike is safe to use. Uneven tyre pressure can affect the stability of your bike and we know it doesn’t take much to roll. An object just 15cm in size, hit at low speed may be enough to offset the stability of your bike and cause a rollover.  Do a TCLOCC check: tyres, chassis, lights, oils and cabin controls.
