    Abstract

    This specification deals with the safety performance specifications for commercially manufactured fun-karts intended for private use, on suitable off-road terrain, by consumers, and does not apply to concession, race, home-made, consumer-modified fun-karts, fun-karts that are pedal-powered, unpowered fun-karts, or fun-karts, which are used for commercial purposes. This specification does not cover labeling, maintenance, or use. Materials shall be tested and shall conform to the requirements for fun-kart frame, fun-kart controls, tire capacity, paint, electrical system, fun-kart engines, shields and guards, brush bars, seat belts, fasteners, and plastics.

ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification relates to the safety performance specifications for commercially manufactured fun-karts intended for private use, on suitable off-road terrain, by consumers.

    1.2 This specification is intended to reduce hazards, other than those inherent in the sport of fun-karting, to the users of fun-karts during normal intended use by specifying performance standards of manufacturing.

    1.3 This specification applies to fun-karts for private use and does not apply to concession, race, home-made, consumer-modified fun-karts, fun-karts that are pedal-powered, unpowered fun-karts, or fun-karts, which are used for commercial purposes.

    1.4 This specification recognizes that there are operational hazards relating to fun-karts, which operators and passengers are deemed to have accepted by their use and operation of the fun-kart including, but not limited to, falling out, running into, through, under or over objects, upsetting the fun-kart, general operator recklessness, pinches, scratches, or bruises, or a combination thereof.

    1.5 This specification does not cover labeling, maintenance, or use. For use and maintenance, see Safety Guide F1928.

    1.6 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
