The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has revised its standard for agricultural equipment manuals.
The revised standard, ANSI/ASAE EP363.2, Tractors, machinery for agriculture and forestry, powered lawn and garden equipment – Operator’s manual – Content and format , was a complete rewrite incorporating a long list of changes. As a next step, ASABE will propose that EP363.2 be used as the basis for a revision of a corresponding, identically titled international standard, ISO 3600:1996.
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. Location for the download is on the ASABE online Technical Library at: elibrary.asabe.org. Others can obtain a copy for a fee directly from the library or by contacting ASABE headquarters at email@example.com.
