EDA High Reach Guidelines


The aim of this document is to catalogue the best operational techniques which have been gathered by the primary European firms through years of experience in the field and make them available for those operators in this sector who intend to use this type of excavators.

The European Demolition Association published the EDA High Reach Guidelines in 2010 in 8 languages, and since then they have been translated to even more languages.
