This part of ISO 4254, intended to be used together with ISO 4254-1, specifies the safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of mounted, semi-mounted and trailed power-driven soil-working machines used in agriculture. In addition, it specifies the type of information on safe working practices (including residual risks) to be provided by the manufacturer.
This part of ISO 4254 deals with significant hazards (as listed in Annex A), hazardous situations and events relevant to power-driven soil-working machines used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see Clause 4).
This part of ISO 4254 is not applicable to:
— spading machines;
— machines fitted with a retractable device making them capable of working between two successive plants in the same row.
This part of ISO 4254 is not applicable to environmental hazards or electromagnetic compatibility. It is not applicable to hazards related to moving parts for power transmission, except for strength requirements for guards and barriers, nor 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 Vibrations are not regarded as a significant hazard in the case of mounted, semi-mounted or trailed machines.
This part of ISO 4254 is not applicable to power-driven soil-working machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication.
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.
