Handheld Machines

Hand-held or hand-guided machines are electric, pneumatic, hydraulic tools or tools driven by an internal combustion engine. Among other things, holding the machine can cause strain due to its weight or can force the user to assume ergonomically unfavourable hand-/arm positions. In addition, possible emissions of hand-held machines (such as vibration, noise, or exhaust fumes) or emissions from the processed material (such as dusts or vapours) can have a direct impact on users.
