This European Standard deals with the hazards which can arise during commissioning, operation, maintenance and de-commissioning of the machine. This European Standard is not applicable to portable and/or hand-guided machines and appliances equipped with electrically, hydraulically or pneumatically driven cutting tools, which are manufactured before the date of publication of this European Standard by CEN. 1.2 This European Standard covers the following machines subdivided into tool types: 1.2.1 Saws (see Figures 1 to 5) - Circular saws (see Figures 1 and 2); - straight blade reciprocating saws (see Figures 3 and 4); - band saws (see Figure 5). Figure 1 - Cutting saw Figure 2 - Leg saw, horn saw Figure 3 - Sternum saw Figure 4 - Reciprocating saw Figure 5 - Band saw for carcasses 1.2.2 Shears, pincers (see Figures 6 and 7) Figure 6 - Pincer/shear Figure 7 - Pincer for cutting the feet of pigs/shear 1.2.3 Knives (see Figures 8 and 9) - Ring-blade circu
