For Standards IEC 60335-2-92, UL 82, and UL 1447. The standard requires rotary power mowers to have protective shields.
The standard requires rotary power mowers to have protective shields. These shields prevent the operator’s foot from contacting the blade, either under the mower’s deck or in the discharge chute area, when the operator has his or her hands on the mower’s controls. Generally, a shield must prevent a foot probe from entering the path of the mower blade or from forcing any part of the mower into the path of the blade. The only difference between the UL Foot Probe Model FP10 and International Foot Probe Model FP11 is the length of the simulated leg.
