Refuse collection vehicles and their associated lifting devices - General requirements and safety requirements - Part 3: Front loaded refuse collection vehicles


This standard applies to front loaded refuse collection vehicles, as defined in 3.2, and specifies their technical requirements. This standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the front loaded RCV, when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer (see Clause 4). This standard part 3 describes and gives the requirements of the front loaded RCV and the associated lifting device(s) and refers to part 4 of this series of standards for the noise test code. Examples for standard types of front loaded refuse collection vehicles are given in Annex C. This European Standard is not applicable to: - operation in severe conditions (e.g. extreme environmental conditions such as: temperatures below –25 °C and above 40 °C, corrosive environment, tropical environment, lightning, wind velocity in excess of 75 km/h); - operation subject to special rules (e.g. potentially explosive atmospheres, contaminating environments); - transportation of passengers, lifting of persons; - loading by crane; - loading by satellite vehicle; - containers other than defined in EN 840-1 to -4, EN 12574-1 to -3 and type B of EN 13071; - handling of loads the nature of which could lead to dangerous situations such as hot wastes, acids and bases, radioactive materials, especially fragile loads, explosives.
