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!!!

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
