Abstract Preview

ISO 12117-2:2008 establishes a consistent and reproducible means of evaluating the load-carrying characteristics of roll-over protective structures (ROPS) for excavators under static loading, and prescribes performance requirements of a representative specimen under such loading. ROPS are to be used where the risk of roll-over exists.

ISO 12117-2:2008 applies to ROPS of hydraulic excavators as defined in ISO 6165 with a mass of over 6 t and less than 50 t. It also applies to ROPS for excavator-based or derivated excavators used in object or material handling, demolition or with attachments such as in log-handling and forestry applications. It does not apply to excavators with elevating cab risers.
