Rough-terrain trucks - Safety requirements and verification - Part 5: Attachment interface


This document specifies requirements for the truck side of the attachment interface of rough-terrain non-slewing and slewing variable reach trucks (hereafter referred to as "trucks") dealt with in EN 1459-1:2017+A1:2020, EN 1459-2:2015+A1:2018 and EN 1459-4:2020. This document covers the interface for the attachments fitted to the telescopic boom carriage or mounted on the forks when it is used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer. This document does not cover: - interface for interchangeable equipment designed for lifting person(s) (covered by EN 1459-3:2015); - interface for equipment for container handling (e.g. spreader); - interface for equipment permanently installed on the machine and not intended to be removed by the user. NOTE In this case, equipment becomes part of the truck. This document does not give requirements for the completed assembly of a truck fitted with an attachment. This document does not address risks to parts of the truck other than the interface with the attachment. This document is not applicable to interfaces manufactured before the date of its publication.
