This European Standard applies to rough-terrain variable reach trucks (herein-after referred to as ‘trucks’) that have a specific seated operator’s position, on the left hand side of the boom, or centre position (excluding operator position on the right side of the boom).
This European Standard specifies a static test method for determining and evaluating the operator’s visibility on a rectangular 1 m boundary close around the rough-terrain variable reach truck and on a 12 m visibility test circle. Performance requirements for visibility are specified in this standard.
This European Standard does not apply to rough-terrain variable reach trucks designed to handle freight containers (rough-terrain reach stackers).
It applies to trucks for operation on work sites.
