    Earth-moving machinery - Safety - Part 12: Requirements for cable excavators


    This part of EN 474 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to cable excavators as defined in EN ISO 6165:2006, when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This European Standard applies also to cable excavators, their undercarriage and upper-structure, if intended for use in combination with other equipment or attachment, such as drill rigs, pile driving and extracting equipment and moving equipment (e.g. rail track, walking legs, pontoon, ship) or stationary undercarriage. This European Standard is not dealing with the specific hazards due to these additional equipment or attachment.
