Earthmoving Machinery - Operator’s Field of View(Cancelled Nov 2013)
This SAE Standard specifies a stationary test method for determining the masking effect caused by
parts of the base machine with equipment as specified by the manufacturer on a visibility test circle around the
machine from the eye position point of a seated operator. It specifies a method for evaluating the maskings
that may be present.
It applies to earthmoving machines which have a specific operator’s station. It does not consider evaluation of
maskings which may be present with operational movement of working tools.
