Self-propelled machinery for forestry — Laboratory tests and performance requirements for roll-over protective structures — Part 1: General machines
This part of ISO 8082 establishes a consistent, reproducible means of evaluating the force–deflection
characteristics of roll-over protective structures (ROPS) on self-propelled forestry machines under static
loading, and prescribes performance requirements for a representative specimen under such loading. It is
applicable to forwarders, skidders, feller-bunchers, processors, harvesters and log loaders, as defined in
ISO 6814. It is not applicable to machines having a rotating platform with a cab and boom on the platform,
which are addressed by ISO 8082-2.
NOTE The requirement levels and testing procedures of this part of ISO 8082 are the same as those of ISO 3471 .
