Hi all,

I'm a C-6 quad, looking to buy a 4 seater RZR but my wife and I are wondering if any of you have come up with an easy to get in and out of your RZR. Any creative lift ideas?

Thanks,

Terry

I am a t7 Para and just got a RZR 800 le eps I think it sits a little lower than the 4's do but It is not to much of a climb. I do use a transfer board mostly because of recent shoulder surgery. I meet a gentleman in South Dakota that had a bar mounted on the roll cage over head so to help get him in. Not sure what level his injury is at.
So far it has been great still getting things added to work better. I would say 5 point harnesses are pretty much a must. Just got mine today still need to put them in. I was able to drive it with the stock belts but did not feel real confident in any thing very rough.

Transferring in and out of RZR

I personally have three different platforms at different heights for entry on quads, truck, skid steer and lawn mower. Two have long ramps to (5" & 18") platform and one built into my concrete wall from a 2 level concrete ramp. My new electric wheelchair has a 10" elevator built into the seat and is perfect for entrying RZR 800 & XP 900. Slide boards work! Good Luck :)

I'm a C5 Quad. Bigger guy and surely don't have the strength to transfer. So built a lift system that uses a winch on a roller carriage that move in and out of the RZR. A normal Hoyer sling is used and just hooks on a bar attached to the wench cable. The winch detaches and goes into the back of the RZR when riding. The main part of the roller system stays above you head when riding and when done the winch can just be attached when time to get out. I'm aware it's much more than others have done but I need to make it easy on my wife and family.

Some Pics for those interested

The answer to your question is no.
True no really easy way. RZRs are not really designed for disabled but if they were it surely would not be as much fun. But the are surely creative ideas out there. I agree the 4 seaters expecially the 900 are high and tranferring in would harder than S or standard. But right now I don't think there is a better platform for the disabled rider so run out and by one :)
