Earth-Moving Machinery - Roll-Over Protective Structures - Laboratory Tests and Performance Requirements
|Publication Date:||1 February 1994|
|ICS Code (Earth-moving machinery):||53.100|
This International Standard establishes a consistent and reproducible means of evaluating the load-carrying characteristics of Roll-Over Protective Structures (ROPS) under static loading, and prescribes performance requirements for a representative specimen under such loading.
It applies to the following seated design operator-controlled machines as defined in ISO 6165:
- crawler tractors and loaders;
- wheeled loaders and wheeled tractors and their modified versions used for rolling or compacting, dozer-equipped wheeled tractors, skid-steer loaders and backhoe loaders;
- wheeled industrial tractors;
- the tractor portion (prime mover), of tractor scrapers, water wagons, articulated steer dumpers, bottom-dump wagons, side-dump wagons, rear-dump wagons and towed fifth-wheel attachments;
- rollers and compactors;
- rigid frame dumpers.
