Guarding of Starter System Energization
This SAE Standard describes guarding to help prevent hazardous machine movement caused by activation of the starter motor by bypassing the starter control system.
This document is applicable to off-road, self-propelled work machines, as identified in SAE J1116 and Agricultural Tractors as defined in ANSI/ASAE S390 which have the potential for hazardous machine movement as a result of bypassing the starter control system and powering of the starter motor.
This standard has been revised to clarify that Agricultural Tractors are included in the scope. The 2013 revision to SAE J1116 removed Agricultural Tractors from the scope of that standard however provided a means to continue to include Agricultural Tractors in SAE standards that are also applicable to agricultural tractors.
