Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally adopted).

2.2.The boundaries of the zone shall be taken as:

2.2.1.vertical planes 250 mm on either side of the reference plane extending upwards from the seat reference point for 300 mm;
2.2.2.parallel planes extending from the upper edge of the planes referred to in point 2.2.1 to a maximum height of 900 mm above the seat reference point and inclined in such a way that the upper edge of the plane on the side from which the side loading is applied is at least 100 mm from the reference plane;
2.2.3.a horizontal plane 900 mm above the seat reference point;
2.2.4.an inclined plane perpendicular to the reference plane and including a point 900 mm directly above the seat reference point and the rearmost point of the seat backrest;
2.2.5.a surface, if necessary curved, with a series of straight lines perpendicular to the reference plane extending downwards from the rearmost point of the seat in contact with the seat backrest throughout its length;
2.2.6.a curvilinear surface, perpendicular to the reference plane, with a radius of 120 mm tangential to planes referred to in points 2.2.3 and 2.2.4;
2.2.7.a curvilinear surface, perpendicular to the reference plane, having a radius of 900 mm extending forward for 400 mm from and tangential to the plane referred to in point 2.2.3 at a point 150 mm forward of the seat reference point;
2.2.8.an inclined plane perpendicular to the reference plane, joining surface referred to in point 2.2.7 at its forward edge and passing 40 mm from the steering wheel. In the case of a high steering wheel position this plane is replaced by a tangent plane to the surface referred to in point 2.2.7;
2.2.9.a vertical plane, perpendicular to the reference plane, 40 mm forward of the steering wheel;
2.2.10.a horizontal plane through the seat reference point;
2.2.11.in the case of a tractor with a reversible driving position, the clearance shall be a combination of the two clearances determined for the two positions of the steering wheel and seat;
2.2.12.in the case of a tractor which can be fitted with optional seats, the tests shall be based on the combined seat-reference-point clearance for all available seat options. The roll-over protection structure must not enter the combined clearance around the various seat reference points;
2.2.13.where a new seat option is proposed after the test has taken place, a calculation shall be made to determine whether the clearance around the new seat reference point is located entirely within the clearance previously established. If this is not the case, a new test shall be required.
