Polaris ambassador and skilled driving instructor Andrew "Simmo" Simpson explains how to avoid roll-over in your side-by-side.

With the death of quads from major brands in Australia thanks to the requirement of a ROP system, side-by-side use in Australia has exploded. You only need to look at the sales figures. But are they safer, well Simmo seems to think so and can demonstrate just how far they will go before rolling in this safety video on how to avoid a roll-over. Today’s demo vehicle is a Polaris Ranger XP1000.

Simmo has over two decades experience as a trainer so he knows what he talking about and he can push the limits, as can be seen in his how to avoid a roll-over video. As a Registered MITO Assessor, Primary ITO AgExcel Endorsed Trainer, and an NZTA Registered Driving Instructor and Testing Officer Simmo is passionate about keeping all drivers safe behind the wheel.

Simmo runs CARNZ Training Driver Specialists which helps those new to side-by-sides or those looking to upskill become familiar with the limits of their side-by-side.  Simmo can discuss training requirements based on the type of work and terrain being utilised by staff.  This ensures the training provided will be the most beneficial for staff and your business.

Simmo prides himself in keeping abreast with all the technological advances being made by engaging with Manufacturers of vehicles and machines to ensure training is up-to-date and relevant to the vehicle types being trained on.

Last year Simmo conducted the practical demonstrations for Polaris NZ at the Central Districts and Mystery Creek Fieldays.

The site won ‘Best Customer Engagement Site 2016’ at the Mystery Creek Fieldays.
