Abstract This project was commissioned by HSE following concern about the safety of power take-off shafts for agricultural tractors and their guards. HSE was an important contributor to the work which lead to ISO draft international standard 5674 "Tractors and machinery for agriculture and forestry - Guards for power take-off (PTO) drive shafts - Wear and strength tests". Although this document has received a positive vote, several queries have been raised by various international delegations to ISO concerning certain aspects of testing required under this draft standard. This report aims to answer these queries and promote involvement by manufacturers and other parties involved in advocating its adoption.
