CEN - EN ISO 4254-11

Agricultural machinery - Safety - Part 11: Pick-up balers

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 December 2010
Status: active
Page Count: 36
ICS Code (Harvesting equipment): 65.060.50
scope:

This document, intended to be used together with ISO 4254-1, specifies the safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of self-propelled and trailed pick-up balers, including when combined with bale wrappers, used in agriculture for pressing of material (such as forage, feedstock, straw), independent of the shape or size of the bales formed. It describes methods for the elimination or reduction of hazards arising from the intended use and reasonably foreseeable misuse of these machines by one person (the operator) in the course of normal operation and service. In addition, it specifies the type of information on safe working practices to be provided by the manufacturer.

This document, taken together with ISO 4254-1, deals with all the significant hazards (as listed in Table 1), hazardous situations and events relevant to self-propelled and trailed pick-up balers and for balers when combined with bale wrappers, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse that are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).

This part of ISO 4254 is not applicable to pedestrian-controlled round balers, environmental hazards, road safety, vibration and hazards related to moving parts for power transmission. It is not applicable to hazards related to maintenance or repairs carried out by professional service personnel.

NOTE 1 Specific requirements related to road traffic regulations are not taken into account in this part of ISO 4254.

NOTE 2 Pick-up balers with integrated bale wrappers are covered in this document, with the exception of the wrapping functions, which are covered in ISO 4254-14. Bale wrappers and the wrapping function of bale wrappers combined with pick-up balers, are covered in ISO 4254-14.

When requirements of this part of ISO 4254 are different from those which are stated in ISO 4254-1, the requirements of this part of ISO 4254 take precedence over the requirements of ISO 4254-1 for machines that have been designed and built according to the requirements of this part of ISO 4254.

This part of ISO 4254 is not applicable to machines manufactured before the date of its publication.
