With summertime fast approaching, side by side enthusiasts across the country are pulling their vehicles out of storage and getting them tuned up. Although summer provides an abundance of opportunities for hardcore riding, safety-conscious drivers would do well to remember all the risks associated with their favorite hobby. Whichever brand you own, Polaris, Can-Am, Yamaha, Kawasaki, John Deere, Arctic Cat, Kubota etc., equipping your UTV with a reliable fire extinguisher will go a long way in protecting you and your passengers from unexpected blazes all summer long.
Protection from Personal Injury
Incurring serious burns is guaranteed to make any UTV mishap substantially worse. Being ejected from the vehicle or suffering a broken bone is bad enough; getting caught up in a vehicle fire will compound your suffering tenfold. A UTV fire extinguisher will enable you to promptly put out small blazes before they have a chance to grow larger and cause personal harm.
If your UTV unexpectedly catches fire, the blaze may damage the vehicle irreparably. If you haven’t purchased insurance for the vehicle, you’ll be taking a sizable hit financially. Even if your side by side is insured, obtaining a replacement can be a tremendous hassle. Using a fire extinguisher to quickly address fires before they consume your vehicle is liable to save you a great deal of time, money, and stress.
Peace of Mind
Even if you’ve never had an accident when operating your side by side vehicle, the presence of a fire extinguisher will provide you with immense peace of mind. Armed with a good fire extinguisher, you’ll be able to enjoy yourself on your UTV without constantly worrying about the threat of fire.
