This document gives the safety requirements and measures for displaceable building site saws, designed to cut wood and materials with similar physical characteristics to wood, hereinafter referred to as "machines".
NOTE 1 For the definition of displaceable machine, see ISO 19085-1:2017, 3.5.
It deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4, relevant to the machines, when operated, adjusted and maintained as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse. Also, transport, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping phases have been taken into account.
NOTE 2 For relevant but not significant hazards, e.g. sharp edges of the machine frame, see ISO 12100:2010.
The machine can also be fitted with a device for the saw blade to be manually raised and lowered through the table, whose hazards have been dealt with.
This document does not apply to the following:
a) machines with a maximum saw blade diameter smaller than 350 mm or greater than 500 mm;
b) hand-held woodworking machines, including any adaptation permitting their use in a different mode, i.e. bench mounting;
c) machines with a device to tilt the saw blade for angle cutting, machines with more than one saw blade rotational speed and machines equipped with a sliding table;
NOTE 3 Hand-held motor-operated electric tools are covered by IEC 62841-1 together with IEC 62841-2-5.
NOTE 4 Machines with the device to tilt the saw blade for angle cutting, machines with more than one saw blade rotational speed and machines equipped with a sliding table are considered as table saws, covered by ISO 19085-9.
This document is not applicable to machines intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres or to machines manufactured prior to the date of its publication.
