Title Manually portable brush-cutters and grass-trimmers with internal combustion engine: Determination of sound power levels - Engineering method (Grade 2)
Original title Débroussailleuses et coupe-herbe portatifs à moteur à combustion interne: détermination des niveaux de puissance acoustique - Méthode d'expertise (classe 2) [in French]
Bibliographic information International Organization for Standardization, Case postale 56, 1211 Genève 20, Switzerland, 1995. iii, 8p. Illus. 5 ref.
Abstract This International Standard specifies a method of carrying out, efficiently and under standardized conditions, the determination, declaration and verification of sound power levels of manually portable hand-held brush-cutters and grass-trimmers. These units have internal combustion engines and are primarily used in forestry. The use of this International Standard ensures the reproducibility of the determination of sound power levels within specified limits determined by the grade of accuracy of the basic noise standard for the determination of sound power levels used.
