Fieldays 2012 looks bright for quad-bikes

Expectations are high for ATV and Ranger quad-bike manufacturers Polaris as they return for Fieldays 2012.

National sales manager Anton Giacon believes after their success in 2011 they hope for another great year with extra new models and low prices.

“We expect a good number of sales – last year was fantastic for us. This year we’ve got a couple of extra new models and our pricing is probably that much better again.

“Adding to that our dealer network has grown as well. So yeah we’re looking for a real good year this year.”

Mr Giacon said Polaris have attended Fieldays for many years, he thought it is a good event and the company have supported it every time.

Giacon and his staff had arrived at the Mystery Creek Events Centre on Monday and like many other sites, they have endured the last minute rush to have everything set up ready for the opening day.

He acknowledged the strong competition in the quad-bike market but was confident Polaris offered something different and they had a great product.

“It’s down to your product and your dealerships and how they support your brand.”

Polaris have 20 dealers around New Zealand and in most cases are located in areas suitable for farming.
