Mower Testing

WESTEST is equipped to provide

mower manufacturers with trusted, reliable testing protocols to test their products to Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) and American Society of Agricultural Engineer (ASAE) standards. These standards ensure mower safety to the operator, passers-by and surrounding property.

One test involves dropping an operating mower onto a two-inch-diameter steel pin. To pass, the mower must operate for two seconds without causing damage to the mower that is dangerous to the operator or anyone nearby.

Another test involves dropping nails and steel slugs through the top of the mower housing to simulate debris hitting the mower blade. The quantity of nails and slugs thrown out of the mower are evaluated.

These test results help mower manufacturers design their product with safety features that minimize risks.
