ASABE Revises Adoption of ISO 80 mm Ball Hitch Standard

Press release date: July 10, 2014

ST JOSEPH, MICHIGAN — The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has revised its previous adoption of an international standard, ISO 24347:2005, for 80 mm ball-type coupling devices used with towed agricultural vehicles.

The new standard, ANSI/ASABE AD24347:2005, Agricultural vehicles — Mechanical connections between towed and towing vehicles — Dimensions of ball-type coupling device, 80 mm, replaces the previous adoption, which was without deviations, with a document that is similar but has specific technical deviations in the reference section of the ISO document.  Since the initial adoption of ISO 24347, in 2008, ASABE has nationally adopted two of the three ISO standards referenced within ISO 24347. Users of ANSI/ASABE AD24347:2005 are to deviate from ISO 24347 by replacing the referenced ISO standards with the equivalent ASABE national adoptions as referenced.
