The following has been extracted from the Vehicle Dimensions & Mass Rule 2002. Rule 41001
By now everyone will be aware that the new Dimensions & Mass Rule came into effect on 1 July 2002 and that there would be a three month “overlap” whereby operators could work under either the old or new rule.
From 1 October ONLY the provisions of the new rule will apply. Although the Land Transport Safety Authority produced and distributed Factsheet 53 in June many members of the Power Crane Association are still a little confused about the requirements. Therefore to try to eliminate the confusion we have produced this document which lists the main points of the new rules and any actions that you should take to ensure you get the maximum benefit while at the same time observing the rule.
