Agricultural machinery - Solid fertilizer broadcasters and full width distributors - Environmental protection - Part 2: Test methods

Status: Valid

Scope
This European Standard specifies methods to test mounted, trailed and self-propelled broadcasters and full width solid fertilizer distributors used in agriculture and horticulture.

This European Standard does not apply to machines which are:
- combined grain and fertilizer drills; or
- equipment for distributing granulated pesticides; or
- solid fertilizer line-distributors (which are dealt with in EN 13740-1:2003 and in EN 13740-2:2003).

If the term ‘machine’ is used it covers both full width distributors and broadcasters, except in the case of definitions in Part 1.

Two different methods are described in this European Standard to carry out the evaluation test: a transverse test and a rotating test. The rotating test is mainly adapted to centrifugal spreaders.

Subjects

Storage, preparation and distribution of fertilizers
