Introduction

This document is applicable to rough-terrain variable-reach trucks homologated as tractors according

to 167/2013, called rough-terrain variable-reach tractors (RTVR tractors).

This document is also intended to highlight and explain the requirements of the Machinery Directive

2006/42/EC applicable to the permanently mounted equipment on a RTVR tractor.
It is based on EN 1459-1:2017.

The two following regulations apply to those RTVR tractors with permanently mounted equipment:

Tractor regulation 167/2013
Machinery directive 2006/42/CE for the permanently mounted equipment.
As a consequence, the two following documents accompany each piece of equipment:
— COC certificate of conformity
— DOC declaration of conformity for permanently mounted equipment
The permanently mounted equipment bears the CE marking.
All quantities are in SI units, and this includes metric units.
This document is a type C standard as stated in EN ISO 12100.

The machinery concerned and the extent to which hazards, hazardous situations and hazardous events

are covered are indicated in the scope of this document.

When provisions of this type C standard are different from those which are stated in type A or B

standards, the provisions of this type C standard take precedence over the provisions of the other

standards, for machines that have been designed and built according to the provisions of this type C

standard.

position. Powered travel shall not occur automatically when the operator returns to the normal

operator’s position without an additional operation, e.g. by requiring resetting the direction control.

Application of the parking brake shall engage transmission in neutral, except on RTVR tractors with

hydro-static transmission.
The release of parking brake shall not engage the transmission automatically

NOTE On RTVR tractors with hydro-static transmission, the transmission system achieves the same objective.
