Organization: ISO
Publication Date: 1 December 2011
Status: active
Page Count: 10
ICS Code (Forestry equipment): 65.060.80
scope:

This part of ISO 11680 gives safety requirements and measures for their verification for the design and construction of portable, hand-held, pole-mounted powered pruners with a back-pack power unit and using a drive shaft to transmit power to a cutting attachment consisting of a saw chain or reciprocating or circular saw blade (hereafter referred to as "machine"). Methods for the elimination or reduction of hazards arising from the use of these machines and the type of information on safe working practices to be provided by the manufacturer are specified.

This part of ISO 11680, together with the relevant sections of ISO 11680-1, deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events with the exception of electric shock from contact with overhead electric lines (apart from warnings and advice for inclusion in the instruction handbook) and whole-body vibration from the back-pack power unit, relevant to these machines when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.

NOTE 1 A standardized test procedure for measuring whole-body vibration from the backpack power unit is presently not available.

NOTE 2 See Annex A for a list of significant hazards.

This part of ISO 11680 is applicable to portable, hand-held, pole-mounted powered pruners with back-pack power unit manufactured after its date of publication.
