4 Used machine evaluation requirements
The requirements in this clause are provided to allow the owner, seller or their representative to evaluate used machines relative to the information provided by the manufacturer in the machine operator’s manual to verify that the used machine is functioning as intended by the manufacturer.
An inspection form for used machines in four sections (see example in Annex A) may he used to provide information on the machine under inspection.
a) The upper section of the first page provides specific identification of the used machine.
b) The middle section of the first page provides a checklist to document the results of a used machine inspection. A check in the box by each inspection item indicates that the used machine is functioning properly as intended by the manufacturer as stated in the operator’s manual.
cJ The lower section of the first page has information about the inspection person.
d) The section on the second page provides a detailed inspection list based on this document’s requirements.
4.2 General requirements
