2.1.1.Material, equipment and tie-down means adequate to ensure that the assembly is firmly fixed to the bedplate, independently of tyres if present.
2.1.2.Means of applying a horizontal force on the protection structure by a stiff beam as shown in figures 1 and 2 of Annex IV.
2.1.2.1.The stiff beam shall have a vertical face dimension of 150 mm.
2.1.2.2.Provision must be made so that the load can be uniformly distributed normal to the direction of loading and along a beam having a length of one of the exact multiples of 50 between 250 and 700 mm.
2.1.2.3.The edges of the beam in contact with the protection structure shall be curved with a maximum radius of 50 mm.
2.1.2.4.Universal joints — or the equivalent — shall be incorporated to ensure that the loading device does not constrain the structure in rotation or translation in any direction other than the direction of loading.

2.1.3.Equipment for measuring as far as is technically possible the energy absorbed by the protection structure and the rigid parts of the tractor to which it is attached, for example by measuring the force applied along its direction of application and the corresponding deflection relative to a point on the tractor chassis.
