4.3 Environmental protection requirements
The owner, seller or their representative shall evaluate the used machine and verify the following.
a) The primary features of the machine impacting sound compliance (for example, exhaust system, sound reduction padding, windows and engine covers) have been installed and are in an acceptable working condition.
b) The exhaust emission certification label, if originally fitted on the engine for the used machine, is legible.
c) If equipped with air-conditioning, the refrigerant label is legible.
4.4 Safety requirements
The owner, seller or their representative shall evaluate the used machine safety-related items and verify that the following requirements have been met.
a) Safety signs on the used machine are in place as specified in the operator’s manual and are legible.
b) For used machines equipped with an operator’s cab, the doors and windows function smoothly. The lock of the door works and is reliable. The cab does not leak. Glazing material on the windows is made of safety glass or other material that provides similar safety performance with the appropriate labelling on the glass (for example, see ECE R43 and ANSI Z26.1).
c) The main structural parts (for example, equipment, undercarriage and rotary platform) are in acceptable condition. Identify any cracks or obvious deformation in the used machine inspection report.
d) Walkways, stairs, handrails and handhoids are in place and in acceptable condition. When the window panel is used as an emergency exit, it has an appropriate marking (for example, see IEC 61310-1:1995, Figure 8).
e) Used machines with rubber tyres have tyre and rim load performance adapted to the machine’s purpose and application. The rims are in acceptable condition. Rims have clear identification (for example, see ISO 4250-3).
f) When used machines are equipped with TOPS, ROPS or FOPS, the label is located on the structure and the structure is in acceptable condition. No signs of permanent deformation, cracks or corrosion that reduce the material cross section of structural members shall be present.
g) Used machines fitted with ROPS or TOPS have an operator restraint system that meets the operator’s manual specifications. Seat belt fabric shall be in acceptable conditions and shall not have cuts or signs of excessive wear.
h) Used machines with provision for a seated operator are fitted with an adjustable seat that supports the operator in a position that allows the operator to control the machine under the intended operating conditions.
i) Used machine brakes comply with the brake test defined in the operator’s manual, if specified. Brakes and brake components are in acceptable condition.
j) The steering system of wheeled machines functions properly (for example, without excessive steering force or delays or free play in the steering control).
k) The hydraulic hoses show no abnormal signs of aging, crack, damage, loosening, etc. Pipes and hoses located inside the cab or within 1 m of the operator are guarded as provided by the manufacturer. Note any damage in the inspection report.AS ISO 10987.3 pdf download.
