4 Truck configuration
4.1 General
EN 16842-1:2018, Clause 4 does not apply. The test shall be conducted with an unladen truck on a level, horizontal floor. Trucks for container handling shall be equipped with a container spreader. The test method of this standard applies to all configurations, including additional tests for various types of masts, external fuel tanks, counterweights, cabs, etc. that adversely affect visibility. Where a configuration has no adverse effect on visibility, the test may not need to be repeated. The test shall be valid for the determined configurations of the truck and these shall be recorded in the test report according to Clause 8.
4.2 Position of container attachment
The spreader shall be at the travelling position (unladen) with the bottom of the spreader up to 900 mm above the seat index point (SIP). NOTE ; The elevated spreader allows an operator in a low position on the truck to see underneath the spreader.
