détails du produit
This is the first edition of CSA B175.6, Internal combustion engine–powered hand-held hedge trimmers — Safety and environmental requirements, which is an adoption without modification of the identically titled ANSI/OPEI (American National Standards Institute/Outdoor Power Equipment Institute) Standard B175.6-2018. This Standard is part of CSA Group’s series of standards on portable power saws.
It should be noted that this Standard specifies the safety and environmental requirements for gas-powered hedge trimmers typically used for landscaping and general property maintenance. Although the focus of this Standard is on commercial-grade equipment used by professional groundskeepers, it can also be applied to consumer-grade equipment used by non-professionals.
In Canada, product labels (including warnings) and operator manuals are required to be provided in both French and English (see Clauses 15 and 16).
Scope and Purpose

a) Internal combustion engine-powered, hand-held, hedge trimmers;
b) Internal combustion engine-powered, hand-held, extended-reach hedge trimmers; and
c) Internal combustion engine-powered, hand-held, multi-purpose machines when configured as a hedge trimmer.
NOTE – English conversions are shown in brackets and are included for information only.
The effective implementation date of this standard shall be two (2) years after the publication date and shall apply to all products built after that date. Manufacturers may also comply with this standard any time after the publication date.
ANSI/OPEI B175.6-201X and ANSI B175.6-201X may be used interchangeably wherever referenced or required in this standard.
