Rebates offered in bid for safety on farms


Farmers have 12 months to access the NSW Government’s $2000 rebate on side-by-side vehicles and join more than 4000 customers who have bought a safer alternativ­e to traditiona­l quad bikes.

Minister for Fair Trading Eleni Petinos said further rebates were available to farmers and rural businesses who undertook an eligible SafeWork training course.

“We are encouragin­g farmers to access these rebates which can go towards the purchase of eligible side-by-side vehicles, roll bars, compliant helmets and drones which can help check stock, fences, and dams,” Ms Petinos said.

To support improved quad bike safety, NSW Fair Trading has also visited more than 162 outlets across the state to ensure new, general purpose quad bikes displayed for sale are equipped with roll bars.
