Description / Abstract:

This Standard covers only portable farm augers and their related accessories designed primarily for conveying agricultural materials on farms. For definitions see ASAE Standard S374, Terminology and Specification Definitions for Agricultural Auger Conveying Equipment.

American National Standards ANSI/ASME B15.1, Safety Standard for Mechanical Power Transmission Apparatus, and ANSI/ASME B20.1, Safety Standard for Conveyors and Related Equipment, do not apply to agricultural auger conveying equipment.


The purpose of this Standard is to provide for a reasonable degree of personal safety for operators and other persons during normal operation of auger conveying equipment used to convey agricultural materials on farms.

In addition to the design and configuration of equipment, hazard control and accident prevention are dependent upon the awareness, concern, and prudence of personnel involved in the operation, transport, maintenance and storage of equipment or in the use and maintenance of facilities.
