REVISED STANDARDS ON AG EQUIPMENT
The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has completed revisions to two of its most frequently cited engineering standards. The revisions are ANSI/ASAE S276.7, Slow Moving Vehicle Identification Emblem (SMV Emblem) and ANSI/ASAE S279.15, Lighting and Marking of Agricultural Equipment on Highways.
The slow-moving emblem standard was revised to update the testing requirements for the backing materials of the SMV emblem. Major changes to the lighting and marking standard include the incorporation of rotary beacons or strobe lights, and of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on agricultural equipment. ASABE and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers worked together to complete this revision.
