BS EN 690:2013 pdf download – Agricultural machinery — Manure spreaders — Safety
1 Scope
This European Standard, to be used together with EN ISO 4254-1, specifies the safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of self-propelled, mounted, semi-mounted and trailed manure spreaders, provided with vertical or horizontal axes rotors rear spreader device or with vertical axes disc rear spreader device. In addition, it specifies the type of information on safe working practices to be provided by the manufacturer.
When requirements of this document are different from those which are stated in EN ISO 4254-1, the requirements of this document take precedence over the requirements of EN ISO 4254-1 for machines that have been designed and built according the provisions of this document.
This European Standard, taken together with EN ISO 4254-1, deals with all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to manure spreaders, when they are used as intended and under the conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Table 1), excepting the hazards arising from:
— vibrations of self-propelled machinery;
— travelling function of self-propelled machinery;
— overturning in regard to the protection of the operator at the driving station of a self-propelled machine;
hazards related to conveying devices other than those defined in 3.3.1 and 3.3.2,for example loadpush/push-off device.
NOTE1 Regarding roll-over protection for self-propelled agricultural machinery, see EN ISO 16231-1.
NOTE2 This European Standard is neither applicable to environmental hazards nor to road safety.Environmentalaspects are dealt with in EN 13080.
This European Standard does not apply to manure spreaders with laterally mounted spreading device asdefined in 3.6.
This European Standard is not applicable to manure spreaders which are manufactured before the date ofpublication of this document by CEN.
