Unbiased and independent, DLG is the authoritative agency when it comes to assessing the utility value as well as the safety and reliability of forestry, municipal and grounds care equipment.
The tests provide buyers with unbiased and reliable information on the products they are using. Equipment that has passed a DLG test has given evidence of its dependable performance on the test stand and in the lab.
The DLG engineers offer manufacturers of small power equipment a comprehensive service which includes consultancy, safety tests to Machinery Directive requirements, type approval tests, GS tests and further certification tests.
The DLG test engineers assess the practicality of small power equipment and award the DLG-APPROVED quality seal in collaboration with the German Center for Forest Work and Technology (KWF) which is also based in Groß-Umstadt and where the usability tests take place.
The DLG Test Center not only carries out tests to DLG standards and approval tests to specific standards and regulations, it also offers a wide range of services in the field of quality assessment or to customer-specific R&D requirements.
The DPLF in Germany is a certification lab that is jointly operated by the German Center for Forest Work and Technology e.V. (KWF) and the DLG TestService GmbH. It offers manufacturers of municipal equipment a wide range of product certifications for agricultural, forestry equipment and machines for park and highway maintenance.
