Title Safety of household and similar electrical appliances - Particular requirements for pedestrian-controlled battery powered electrical lawn mowers
Project Number 15936
Abstract/Scope This clause of EN 60335 Part 1 is replaced by the following: This standard specifies safety requirements and their verification for the design and construction of pedestrian controlled battery powered electrical cylinder or rotary lawnmowers with a rated voltage of the battery being not more than 42 V d.c. This standard does not apply to - non-powered lawnmowers, - rotary lawnmowers for which the cutting means is a generally circular central drive unit on which are mounted, either one or more non-metallic filaments or one or more non-metallic, pivotally mounted cutting elements. These cutting elements rely on centrifugal force to achieve cutting, with the kinetic energy of a single cutting element not exceeding 10 J, - mains operated electrical lawnmowers. Requirements for battery chargers, including those incorporated into the machine, are dealt with in EN 60335-2-29. This standard is not applicable to lawnmowers which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CENELEC.
