Tractors and agricultural or forestry machinery: front-mounted protection structures
The European Union is harmonising the technical requirements for front-mounted roll-over protection structures on narrow-track tractors.
The Directive applies to narrow-track tractors, i.e. tractors with a minimum track width of less than 1 150 mm, and an unladen weight of between 600 and 3 000 kg.
No Member State may prohibit the placing on the market of a tractor, or refuse to grant EC type-approval or national type-approval for a tractor, if it satisfies the requirements of the Directive.
All tractors covered by the Directive must be fitted with a roll-over protection structure.
The Directive will be adapted to technical progress.
The annexes set out testing procedures and the conditions for granting EC component type-approval and type-approval.
