0.1 ASABE/ISO 5008:2002, Agricultural wheeled tractors and field machinery--Measurement of whole-body vibration of the operator, is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ISO standard ISO 5008:2002, Agricultural wheeled tractors and field machinery--Measurement of whole-body vibration of the operator.This ISO standard is a derivative of SAE J1013, Measurement of Whole Body Vibration of the Seated Operator of Off-Highway Work Machines.

0.1.1 The following Technical Corrigendum to ISO 5008:2002 was reviewed for adoption by the ASABE Power and Machinery Agricultural Machinery--Common Tests Technical Subcommittee and has been formally approved by the Technical committee.

0.1.1 1ISO 5008:2002/Cor.1:2005 0.2

0.2 Scope for ASABE/ISO 5008:2002 W/Cor. 1:2005:

♦ Specifies methods for measuring and reporting the whole body vibration to which the operator of an agricultural wheeled tractor or other field machine is exposed when operating on a standard test track.

♦ The operating conditions of the machine and the ordinates of the artificial test tracks are also included.

♦ This International Standard applies when measurements are made on the artificial test tracks defined herein.

♦ Measurements made under field conditions are covered in annex A.

♦ This International Standard does not include assessment of vibration reaching the operator other than through his/her seat or foot platform (e.g., vibration that is sensed by the feet through the controls or by the hands through the steering wheel is not considered).

0.3 Seven normative references are listed in ISO 5008:2002. These references have been reviewed and accepted as part of the adoption of ASABE/ISO 5008:2002 W/Cor.1:2005.

0.4 This standard had been approved as an American National standard by ANSI (American National Standard Institute).
