    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This European Standard deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4 which are relevant to circular sawing machines for firewood with manual loading and/or unloading with hand operated carriage, hereinafter referred to as "machines", designed to cut solid wood when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse.This European Standard is not applicable to:a)combined circular sawing machines for firewood with additional units, i.e. log splitting units or circular saw bench units;NOTE 1Circular saw benches are dealt with in EN 1870-19:2013.NOTE 2Log splitting machines are dealt with in EN 609-1:1999+A2:2009 and EN 609-2:1999+A1:2009.NOTE 3A draft is under consideration to cover "combined firewood processors".b)machines where the saw blade is capable of tilting;c)log sawing machines where the saw unit moves to cut the workpiece;d)hand-held motor-operated electric tools or any adaptation permitting their use in a different mode, i.e. bench mounting;NOTE 4Hand-held motor-operated electric tools and saw benches to form an integrated whole with a hand-held motor-operated electric tools are covered by EN 60745-1:2009 together with EN 60745-2-5:2010.For RIC engines driven machines hazard of engine electrical starting systems above 24 V are not dealt with in this standard.This document is not applicable to machines which are manufactured before the date of its publication as EN.NOTE 5Machines covered by this document are listed under 1.1 and/or 1.2 of Annex IV of the Machinery Directive.
