Significance and Use
This practice is provided to develop and maintain uniformity in practices for the evaluation of the load capacity of treestands, particularly with regard to quality assurance and safety factors.
It is emphasized that the use of these procedures will not alter the validity of data determined with specific test methods, but provides guidance in the interpretation of test results (valid or invalid) and guidance in the selection of a reasonable test procedure in those instances where no standard exists today.
1.1 This practice provides guidance for testing the load capacity of treestands.
1.2 The values stated are in inch-pound units and are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
