Scope:

This recommended practice establishes the test procedures, performance requirements, and criteria necessary to evaluate minimum safety and reliability requirements of a children's snowmobile as identified in 1.3.

The purpose of this document is to set forth minimum safety and reliability criteria for use in the design of a children's snowmobile as defined by SAE J33. Requirements not directly related to operator safety are not included, unless they are to delineate the intended purpose of the vehicles as distinct from a small sized regular snowmobile.

Rationale:

  • Section 1.2 Remove the word "or" usage of "or" implies alternative to at least 6 years old.
  • Section 2.1.1 Add SAE J68 Test of Snowmobile Switching Devices and Components.
  • Add SAE J192 Maximum Exterior Sound Level for Snowmobiles. Current revision of SAE J192 includes test for snowmobiles which cannot attain 15 mph.
  • Removed SAE J1161.
  • Section 2.1.2 Delete Date.
  • Section 3.9.1 Delete "and" add "or trails". Use on trails is prohibited in most areas.
  • Section 3.9.6 Remove this section. Vehicle is designed for a max speed of 13 km/h (8 mph), see section 3.2. To allow user adjustment would potentially allow adjustment to exceed the max designed speed.
  • Section 3.10 Delete Date.
  • Section 3.11 Delete second sentence, same rationale as Section 3.9.6.
  • Section 4.2.2 Correction of metric conversion.
  • Section 4.2.3 Added to ensure hood is closed during engine operation.
  • Section 4.3.1 Added table 1.
  • Section 4.3.2 Removed table 1.
  • Section 4.7.1 Correction of metric conversion.
  • Section 4.8 Added test for snowmobile switching devices and components.
  • Section 4.11 Removed SAE J1161, replaced by SAE J192.
