Agricultural and forestry machinery. Solid fertilizer distributors. Safety

Status : Current   Published : May 2006



This European Standard, applied together with EN 1553:1999, specifies the safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of mounted, semi-mounted, trailed or self-propelled fertilizer distributors for solid fertilizer application, i.e. full width solid fertilizer distributors, solid fertilizer broadcasters, distributors with oscillating tube and line-distributors as well as solid fertilizer distributors driven by an auxiliary engine to be used by one operator only, used in agriculture, horticulture and in forestry. In addition, this European Standard specifies the type of information on safe working practices (including residual risks) to be provided by the manufacturer. When requirements of this European Standard are different from those which are stated in EN 1553:1999 the requirements of this European Standard take precedence over the requirements of EN 1553:1999 for machines that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this European Standard. It does not apply to: - combined seed and fertilizer drills; - machines for distributing granulated pesticides; - pedestrian controlled distributors; - knapsack distributors. This European Standard deals with all the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to solid fertilizer distributors, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see Clause 4), excepting the hazards arising from: - inadequate lighting of moving/working area; - inadequate visibility from drivers/operators position; - inadequate seating; - travelling functions (drive, braking etc.); - rolling over; - equipment for loading fertilizer into the machine; - an auxiliary engine. It is not applicable to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) nor to environmental hazards (except noise). These aspects are covered by EN 13739-1:2003, EN 13739-2:2003, EN 13740-1:2003 and EN 13740-2:2003.
