European Standard


This European Standard specifies safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of front loaders designed to be mounted on agricultural and forestry wheeled tractors (as defined in the Directive 2003/37/EC).
Hazards related to mounting the lifting arms to the frame mounted on the tractor, and also hazards related to devices for mounting attachments to the arm are covered.
Hazards related to mounting the frame to the tractor (carried out by the dealer of the loader and/or of the tractor), the mounted attachments and hazards due to loss of mechanical strength of the structure are excluded.
This European Standard describes methods and requirements for the elimination or reduction of risks which need specific requirements to front loaders. In addition, it specifies the type of information on safe working practices to be provided by the manufacturer.
The list of significant hazards dealt with in this standard is given in annex A. Annex A also indicates the hazards which have not been dealt with.
This European Standard is not applicable to front loaders which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.
