tractors on public roads

Recommended Posts

MY TWO CENTS: As a police officer and from personal experience, you will generally be left alone just going a short distance- maybe a few hundred feet from your house. Legally, here in New Jersey, it is considered a four wheel motorized construction or farm vehicle, subject to all laws similar to what an excavator would have running a backhoe from job to job( contractor in transit plates, working lights and turn signals, etc,).

Here in PA, with the slow moving vehicle triangle you can run just about anything on the road. But common sense :O should be used. When I mount the Sickle Bar on the Big Ten to do the Road bank across from my house, I mount the Triangle using small vise grips. Just in case. GregB

In our midwest small town all the local recipients of DUI's drive their lawn tractors around town for transportation. So far the cops have left them alone. I know they stop the guys who try to use their gator type farm utility vehicles in town though.

Here in Iowa if you look like a farmer and have a green tractor I don't think they would bother anyone.:D A straw hat and bibs might help also. ( I'm not sure about yellow or orange tractors.)8D

Willy, My friends in Iowa say a green tractor always has the right of way in Iowa. Unless of course a JD an an Oliver come to a 4 way stop and naturally the Oliver has the right away. :D:D Ya just got to love those people from Iowa they are soooo smart.^

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
