Earth-moving machinery - Tip-over protection structure (TOPS) for compact excavators - Laboratory tests and performance requirements
|Publication Date:||14 October 2008|
|ICS Code (Earth-moving machinery):||53.100|
This European Standard establishes a consistent and reproducible means of evaluating the load-carrying characteristics of tip-over protective structures (TOPS) under static loading, and prescribes performance requirements of a representative specimen under such loading. It applies to TOPS of compact excavators (as defined in EN ISO 6165) with swing type boom, having an operating mass (see 3.14) of 1 000 kg to 6 000 kg.
