Product Description

CSA Preface

This is the first edition of CAN/CSA-M8082, Self-propelled machinery for forestry - Roll-over protective structures - Laboratory tests and performance requirements, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 8082:2003 (second edition, 2003-03-01).

Scope

This International Standard establishes a consistent, reproducible means of evaluating the force-deflection characteristics of roll-over protective structures (ROPS) on self-propelled forestry machines under static loading, and prescribes performance requirements for a representative specimen under such loading.

It is applicable to forwarders, skidders, feller-bunchers, processors, harvesters and loaders, as defined in ISO 6814.

It is not applicable to machines having a rotating platform with a cab and boom on the platform. NOTE Research work is being done to develop a test method and criteria for machines having a rotating platform with a cab and boom on the platform. These machines are to be included in a future revision of ISO 8082.
