Lawns Household Appliances intended for lawn care are at once both powerful tools and intended for a widespread consumer user base, making standardization of their specifications an important part of the industry striving for safety. Developed by IEC, these standards deal with lawnmowers, lawn trimmers, lawn scarifiers, and other related lawn equipment. Focusing on appliances with a voltage of under 250V a.c. or 50/75 d.c., these are intended for household use.

IEC 60335-2-107 Ed. 1.0 b:2012

Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety - Part 2-107: Particular requirements for robotic battery powered electrical lawnmowers

"IEC 60335-2-107:2012 deals with the safety of robotic battery powered electrical rotary lawnmowers with the rated voltage of the battery being not more than 75 V d.c. charged by mains electrical and/or solar power. This International Standard does not apply to non-robotic machines such as lawn trimmers, lawn edge trimmers, lawn edgers, ride-on lawnmowers or pedestrian controlled lawnmowers. This standard is not applicable to EMC and environmental hazards (except noise). This standard deals with the common hazards presented by battery powered robotic lawnmowers for use around the home or for similar purposes. Requirements for batteries are covered by IEC 62133. This International Standard is not applicable to machines, which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by IEC. This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60335-1:2001 ."


IEC 60335-2-77 Ed. 2.0 b:2002

Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety - Part 2-77: Particular requirements for pedestrian controlled mains-operated lawnmowers

Deals with the safety of pedestrian controlled mains-operated electrical cylinder or rotary lawnmowers designed primarily for use around the home or for similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V single phase. It does not apply to lawn trimmers, lawn edge trimmers, lawn edgers, flail mowers, sickle-bar mowers, or agricultural mowers.

IEC 60335-2-92 Ed. 2.0 en:2002

Household and similar electrical appliances - Safety - Part 2-92: Particular requirements for pedestrian-controlled mains-operated lawn scarifiers and aerators

Deals with the safety of pedestrian-controlled mains-operated electric lawn scarifiers and aerators. These scarifiers have rotating cutters for regenerating lawns by, for instance, combing out grass thatch and moss, or by cutting vertically into the lawn face. These scarifiers are designed primarily for home use, with a rated voltage not more than 250 V single phase. For lawnmowers, see IEC 60335-2-77; for lawn trimmers, see IEC 60335-2-91.
