This document specifies a vibration test code for determining, efficiently and under standardized conditions, the magnitude of vibration at the handles of portable hand-held, internal-combustion-engine-powered forest and garden machinery, including chain-saws, brush-cutters, grass-trimmers, edgers, pole-mounted powered pruners, hedge-trimmers and garden-blowers.
Although the magnitudes measured are obtained in an artificial operation, they nevertheless give an indication of the values to be found in a real work situation.
Vibration test codes, as described in this document, enable the manufacturer to verify the effort regarding low vibration design.

This part of ISO 11680 specifies safety requirements, and the verification of those requirements, for the design, fabrication and use of portable, hand-held, pole-mounted powered pruners, having an integral combustion engine as the power source and using a drive shaft to transmit power to cutting attachments. The cutting attachments covered are saw chains, and reciprocating and circular saw blades. This part of ISO 11680 describes methods for the elimination or reduction of hazards arising from their use. In addition it specifies the type of information on safe working practices to be provided by the manufacturer. It does not cover the risk of electric shock from overhead electric power lines during use of the pruners, with the exception of warnings and advice intended for inclusion in instruction handbooks. A test method and safety requirements addressing this risk are yet to be developed. The list of significant hazards which require action to reduce the risk is given in annex A. Environmental aspects have not been considered. This part of ISO 11680 applies primarily to pruners manufactured after its date of issue.
