- machines where the saw blade is capable of tilting;
- hand-held motor-operated electric tools or any adaptation permitting their use in a different mode, i.e. bench mounting;
NOTE 1 Hand-held motor-operated electric tools and saw benches to form an integrated whole with a handheld motor-operated electric tools are covered by EN 60745-1:2006 together with EN 60745-2-5:2007.
- machines driven by an internal combustion engine
