A man has been killed in a quad bike crash in NSW central west, the fourth quad bike fatality in less than three weeks.

The man, believed to be aged in his 70s, was riding his quad bike at a property in Clergate on Thursday afternoon when the incident occurred.

Police and emergency crews responded to the incident shortly before 5pm.

The man died at the scene.

The incident comes less than a week after a 60-year-old man was killed in a quad bike crash in the Upper Hunter region.

Two others died in separate incidents involving quad bikes earlier this month.

The NSW Government announced last week that it would double the value of rebates available to farmers for quad bike safety measures to $1000.
