trailering equipment - legal question

4 posts in this topic

Anyone know the legality of trailering a bobcat or tractor with the bucket hanging over the end of the trailer platform off the back (by a foot?) I would hang warning flags, just wondering if it is legal or not.

thanks, lb

Its legal as far as I know. This happens occasionally when we bring extra attachments along and the bucket must hang off the back. It would be any different than the legs of the ramps or something like that. I am assuming that the bucket is attached to the bobcat.

Its legal as long as the view of your trailers tail lights is not restricted.

Ah, you’re ok, as long as it does not say “Such and Such Landscape” on side of truck. The Department of Transportation would get ya fur sure. LOL!

It should be ok, as long as like stated your trailer lights and Lic. is not covered. The main thing is to make sure the skid steer is bindered down correctly. If this is done and all the safety equipment is in working order, Mr. Department of Transportation . or Mr. State Patrol should not have any reason to pull you over. I believe two binders, one in front and one in rear. I like to hook my chain in four spots on the skid steer, verses four spots to trailer and two contact points to skid steer. I never had an issue being inspected.

Good luck!!!

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]

      Yes, they are all done at the hatchery. Finished up two weeks ago this Saturday (4/15). Just waiting for eggs to ripen and hatch to go back out to area water bodies.

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.
