In a perfect world, maybe. But in our world the cops don't know the laws. Not that they are stupid, the transport laws are just so convoluted that nobody has a real clear understanding of them - and if you do they change them the next year!

It took me multiple days of trips to the local state hwy patrol office and it took them contacting the state headquarters to determine if there was a farm exclusion. The local DMV was telling farmers that they HAD TO be CDL, have USDOT nubers and informed the state boys to pull over and ticket ALL farm plated trucks if they didn't! They were wrong and I have a copy of the statutes to show that. Thanks to the efforts of the local highway patrol.

Indiana is the same way farmers don't need a Cdl as long as they don't haul for hire. There is one exception if you hauling enough hazardous materials requiring placarding you need a CDl and this includes everybody.

Ever thought about this one? If you are a farmer and have the exemption and decide to load your tractors and go to a tractor pull,are you legal,or is it against the law for farmers to have a hobby?

If there is prize money awarded, the state considers it "compensation" and therefore commercial.

That makes a lot of sense doesn't it. Farming is not compensation?

You should have no problem because your hauling your own tractor and your not doing it for hire.Hope I'am not stepping on somebodies toes but it depends how bright cop is that might stop you.
