Scope

This part of ISO 11680 gives safety requirements and measures for their verification for the design and
construction of portable, hand-held, pole-mounted powered pruners with a backpack power unit and
using a power transmission shaft to transmit power to a cutting attachment consisting of a saw chain,
a reciprocating saw blade or a single-piece circular saw blade (hereafter referred to as “machine”).
Methods for the elimination or reduction of hazards arising from the use of these machines and the
type of information on safe working practices to be provided by the manufacturer are specified.
This part of ISO 11680, together with the relevant sections of ISO 11680-1, deals with all significant
hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events with the exception of electric shock from contact
with overhead electric lines (apart from warnings and advice for inclusion in the instructions) and
whole-body vibration from the backpack power unit, relevant to these machines when they are used as
intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer.
NOTE 1 – A standardized test procedure for measuring whole-body vibration from the backpack power unit is
presently not available.
NOTE 2 – See Annex A for a list of significant hazards.
This part of ISO 11680 is applicable to portable, hand-held, pole-mounted powered pruners with
backpack power unit manufactured after its date of publication.
