Review of Australian Standards. To keep abreast of progress in industry, Australian Standards are subject to periodic review and are kept up to date by the issue of amendments or new edit ions as necessary. It is important therefore that Standards users ensure that they are in possession of the latest edit ion, and any amendments thereto. Full detail s of all Australi an Standards and related publications will be found in the Standards Australi a Catalogue of Publications; this information is supplemented each month by the magazine The Australian Standard, which subscribing members receive, and which gives detail s of new publi cati ons, new edit ions and amendments, and of withdrawn Standards. Suggesti ons for improvements to Australi an Standards, addressed to the head off ice of Standards Australi a, are welcomed. Noti fi cati on of any inaccuracy or ambiguity found in an Australian Standard should be made without delay in order that the matter may be investigated and appropriate action taken.

PREFACE
This Standard was prepared by the Standards Australia Committee on Industrial Trucks and is Part 6 in a series of Standards dealing with the design, manufacture and operation of powered industrial trucks. It supersedes, in part, AS 2359.11985, SAA Industrial Truck Code, Part 1: Design and manufacture. Other Standards in this series are as follows: Part 1: General Part 2: Operation Part 3: Counterbalanced fork-lift trucksStability tests Part 4: Reach and straddle fork-lift trucksStability tests Part 5: Control symbols Part 7: Terminology Part 8: Pallet stackers and high-lift platform trucksStability tests Part 9: High-lift rider trucksOverhead guardsSpecification and testing Part 10: Fork-lift trucksHook-on type fork armsVocabulary Part 11: Fork-lift trucksHook-on type fork arms and fork carriersMounting dimensions Part 12: Hazardous areas This Standard is technically equivalent to and has been reproduced from ISO 3691:1980, Powered Industrial TrucksSafety code and incorporates ISO 3691:1980 Amendment No. 1. For the purpose of this Australian Standard, the ISO text should be modified as follows: (a) Delete Section 3 and insert To be in accordance with AS 2359.2.

(f) Clause 8.1.5.2.2 should read 8.5.1.2.2. (g) References to International Standards should be replaced by reference, where appropriate to the following standards: Reference to International Standard ISO 1074 Counterbalanced lift trucksStability Basic tests 1084 1214 1214.1 Industrial tractors Definition and nominal rating Powered industrial trucks Parameters for designation of rated capacity and capacity Part 1: Powered high lift trucks Australian Standard AS 2359 Powered industrial trucks 2359.3 Part 3: Counterbalanced fork-lift trucksStability tests 2359.1 Part 1: General 2359.1 Part 1: General
