This European Standard specifies the general safety requirements of self-propelled, variable-reach, rough-terrain trucks (hereafter referred to as trucks), articulated or rigid chassis, intended to handle loads, which are equipped with a telescopic lifting means (pivoted boom), on which a load handling device (e.g., carriage and fork arms) is fitted.

Fork arms are covered by this standard and are considered to be parts of the truck.

This European Standard deals with the significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to the trucks when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, with the exception of hazards listed in Annex A, 1.3 and 1.4.

This European Standard does not apply to:

— slewing variable reach rough terrain trucks covered by prEN 1459-2;

— industrial variable reach trucks covered by EN ISO 3691-2;

— lorry-mounted variable reach trucks;

— variable reach trucks fitted with tilting or elevating operator position;

— mobile cranes covered by EN 13000;

— machines designed primarily for earth moving, even if their buckets and blades are replaced with forks (see EN 474 series);

— trucks designed primarily with variable length load suspension elements (e.g., chain, ropes) from which the load may swing freely in all directions;

— trucks fitted with personnel/work platforms, designed to move persons to elevated working positions;

— trucks designed primarily for container handling;

— trucks on tracks;

— trucks with articulated chassis;

— attachments (prEN 1459-5).

This European Standard does not address hazards linked to:

— hybrid power systems;

— gas power system;

— trucks equipped with gasoline engine;

— battery power system;

— tractor specific devices (e.g. PTO).

This European Standard does not address hazards which may occur:

a) when handling suspended loads which may swing freely (additional requirements are given in prEN 1459-4);

b) when using trucks on public roads;

c) when operating in potentially explosive atmospheres;

d) when operating underground;

e) when towing trailers;

f) when fitted with a personnel work platform (additional requirements are given in prEN 1459-3).

This document is not applicable to trucks manufactured before the date of its publication.

This document specifies the tests for the verification of restraint systems against the risk of lateral ejection for:

— counterbalanced lift trucks with centre control, sit down and non-elevating operator position (see EN ISO 3691-1), with a rated capacity up to and including 10 000 kg, hereafter referred to as trucks;

— tractors as defined in EN 12312-15 (airport ground equipment);

— Burden carrier tractors with a maximum speed of more than 25 km/h with seated operator as defined in EN ISO 3691-6.

Counterblanced trucks, tractors and burden carriers are named hereafter as trucks.

Note 1 Industrial Tractors as defined in EN ISO 3691-1 do not need a restrain system in general.

This document describes a type test for a specific combination of truck and restraint system.

This standard does not cover:

— the risk due to frontal ejection;

— the monitoring of the protective position of the operator restraint system as defined in EN 16307-1:2013+A1:2015, 4.17;

— the testing of seat belts.

Note 2 The testing of sealt belts is covered by ISO 24135-1.

The document is not applicable for the retrofit of trucks with restraint systems.

This document does not give any requirements on the need for a restraint system.
