Product Description

CSA Preface

This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-M12117, Earth-moving machinery - Tip-over protection structure (TOPS) for compact excavators - Laboratory tests and performance requirements, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 12117 (first edition, 1997-03-15), including Technical Corrigendum 1:2000.


This International Standard establishes a consistent and reproducible means of evaluating the load-carrying characteristics of tip-over protective structures (TOPS) under static loading, and prescribes performance requirements of a representative specimen under such loading. It applies to TOPS of compact excavators (as defined in IS0 6165) with swing type boom, having an operating mass of 1 000 kg to 6 000 kg.
