Re: Getting a 14ft disc home?

Well, instead of playing the guessing game I did a bit of searching and found what is needed. /dor/files /osowhandbook.pdf This site won't let links post normally so you'll have to remove the spaces I put in. Thats the State of Indiana Oversize Overweight handbook in PDF form. Look at page 5 and it gives the farm exemptions. The one issue I see is the requirement that the equipment "can be moved without material damage to highways". What exactly they define as material damage to highways is key. I don't think a 14 foot disc would be damaging, but if you cut a corner and put a divot in the pavement that might give you problems. I'd still be careful and look in there and elsewhere for additional information. Maybe your state farm bureau does like NY and publishes an informational book that is so good it's even issued to the NYSP.

Just remember, this information is SPECIFIC TO INDIANA, it doesn't apply once you cross a state line.

Something else to consider, if it were me and I was hauling an oversized farm equipment item, I'd flag it as well as I could, SMV sign, flashing lights if you think it'd help. As I used to tell the guys hauling oversized loads here, " It's not me and a ticket you really need to worry about, it's Great Aunt Hester creaming your trailer and putting in a call to her nephew Seymour Goldfarb, Esq, the ambulance chasing attorney. THAT is why you take every precaution you can. A $300.00 ticket is nothing compared to the $3 million dollar lawsuit that will cost you $30K to defend yourself against.

I opened this Indiana Doc. and to me it takes us right back to the beginning where the question was not about USING the disc but in getting it home. The exemption states "when being used for agriculture", and I doubt if the DOT on the highway, or great aunt Hester or her nephew Seymour or any judge is going to believe it when you tell them that you pull the disc in the field with the truck also. Granted, most officers are going to allow some leeway, and probably would not ticket some one pulling five miles down the road, behind a truck. Myself, I don't take on ground that is over five miles away, and when I buy a piece of equipment used and it is over ten miles, I'm getting a permit because I just have this thing about living my life the easy way without the drama that you see many people getting involved in.
