Tractors, machines & utility vehicles: Tests and services


We test tractors, machines, utility vehicles and components to international standards and regulations as well as to our own DLG-developed standards. 

The test and measuring methods as developed by our engineers are state-of-the-art, knowledge-based and practice-driven. 

A product that has passed a DLG quality test is awarded the DLG-APPROVED quality mark seal. This seal is the symbol for excellent quality that has been verified in unbiased and independent tests.


Appointed Technical Service and National Test Institute

Appointed Technical Service by the German Motor Transport Authority and National Test Institute by the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development), the DLG Test Center carries out comprehensive safety tests on vehicles and their components.

These components include roll-over protective structures, cabs on tractors, machines and trucks. The tests also comprise appraisals of direct and indirect fields of view and measurements of noise and vibration levels. 

Furthermore, we carry out material tests plus and permanent and repetitive load tests on components and systems. We assess auto guidance systems and ISOBUS interfaces between tractors and implements. 

Individual services

In addition to carrying out tests to DLG standards and approval tests to national or international standards and regulations, the DLG Test Center also offers a wide range of services in the field of quality assessment or to customer-specific R&D requirements.
