Title Noise characteristics of motor hoes - Report and analysis of experimental tests under operational conditions
Original title Parametri caratteristici della rumorositÓ prodotta dalle motozzappatrici - Rilievi ed analisi di prove sperimentali in condizioni operative [in Italian]

Abstract The purpose of these tests was to acquire more data on the noise emission of self-propelling holing machines, in order to define realistic limits for their noise emission. Six machines in the 4.6-8kW range were tested under operational conditions. Noise levels were high, rising to a peak of 95.6dB(A) for diesel-operated machines. Several noise-reduction methods are proposed.
