ROPS testing involves mounting a ROPS cab to a representative machine chassis specimen, and fixing the entire assembly to a rigid test bed.
The test is conducted on the same test specimen in the following sequence:
- Lateral load force and energy absorption
- Vertical load force
- Longitudinal load force
Loadings are calculated according to category and mass of machine. There must be no infringement of DLV in order to pass test.
