I dont know about the rest of you guys but from where I stand here in Iowa the laws are as clear as mud. I have been told by my local sheriff that if im hauling an antique pulling tractor or two on a 25 foot gooseneck trailer behind my F250 that I need not worry. As long as the pickup and trailer are registered to me and that I own the tractors it isnt a problem. When I called the IDOT they told me I needed DOT numbers on the pickup, a fire extinguisher with lables on the doors, and a class A CDL. They also told me that I had to have around a 12 ton tags on the pickup AND the trailer, However, I can pull two 1000 bushel wagons behind the same pickup loaded with corn with no tags or lights, Figure corn at 60lbs. per bushel to make the math easy. Hmmmm! I also have read all about the dot and those who claim that the dot is about safty not state cash flow. My question is if its all about safty then why do they issue fines?Wouldent a verbal warning sufice? And for any DOT cop or upstanding member of the Iowa state patrol, the next time you catch me going 59 in a 55 zone could you please use a little tact? If im going to help out with your payroll would it kill you to be frendly?
