ASABE Updates Agricultural Equipment Lighting and Marking Standard

The updated version of ASABE's agricultural equipment lighting and marking standard, S279, includes provisions for self-leveling lamps and updates to Normative References.

The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has revised its standard on the lighting and marking of agricultural equipment operating on a highway.

The revised standard, ANSI/ASAE S279.17, Lighting and Marking of Agricultural Equipment on Highways, adds provisions for self-leveling lamps, as well as significant updates to the Normative References.

ASABE members with standards access and those with site-license privileges can access the full-text of the standard by electronic download in about a week.
