Low Speed Vehicles
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Added the Table of ContentsReason: To make sections easier to access
Revised Scope to increase maximum G.V.W. to 1361 kg (3000 lb)Reason: To include appropriate vehicles.
Reviewed normative references and deleted those not used, revised references as necessary, had SAE J1718 Stabilized, and added referencesReason: To insure applicability and to include new references.
Revised definitions of Accelerator (3.1), Brake Pedal (3.4), Charged Battery (3.7), Fuel System (3.15), Low Speed Vehicles (3.22), and Operator or Driver (3.24), and added definition of Key (3.21).Reason: Clarity.
Revised (6.2.1) General - Safety Signs to add on-vehicle and in Operator Manual information.Reason: To insure that required information will be included.
Revised (6.4) Operational Controls to define Reverse Warning Indicator (184.108.40.206) and to add Theft Protection (6.4.5)Reason: To clarify the intent of the standard.
Revised General Configuration (6.5) to include revised anthropometry (6.5.2), to revise seat restraint anchorage (220.127.116.11), and to detail the requirements of the Operator Protection Structure (18.104.22.168) including new Figures 1a and 1b.Reason: To eliminate reliance on the FMVSS for timely and applicable revisions and to clarify the test procedures.
Revised the Brake Systems test conditions (22.214.171.124.1.e) and Brake System fade (126.96.36.199.1) test.Reason: For clarity and to better define worst case conditions.
