Does the farm equipment have license plates and pay road tax?

What crops do you gamble on? We're in cotton/wheat country. Really wet late spring and the cotton did pretty well. We're dryer-n-a popcorn fart now. The wheat could use a good soaking.

The reason "truck plates" are cheaper is because the farmer lobby stated that trucks would spend most of their time off of public roads. Considering that trucks are the highest selling and heaviest consumer vehicles now, that's a load of shiat.

She's right. Even when there are no combines on the road, people drive like idiots.

You should do the math sometime: How much time do you save by driving faster? More importantly, what do you gain by driving so fast? Certainly not any respect.

Leo had to take his Datsun to the mechanic.  He asked that we follow him and then we'd go to Terra Haute for an afternoon movie.  It was 1984.

So Leo pulls out on the highway and tractor with a manure spreader pulls out in front of him.  Cow poop is still flying and we watch Leo try and close the moon roof.  He then passes the tractor. We're laughing and the guy I'm with says "here comes the finger". Of course he flipped us off.

The mechanic made him clean out the cow poop before he'd work on it.  More laughing.  But then, we offered to help him.  "There's some poop, Leo.  Over there is some.  You missed a piece...".

Lol where I'm at you're pretty much guaranteed to get stuck behind a tractor or herd of cattle every time you drive unless it's in the middle of the night. Which is fine with me cuz jerbs and fresh food and happy cows etc

yep, growing up with loaded trucks everywhere you also learned to never pass in the right lane if a loaded truck is turning left; the overhang of the logs at the back make quick work of most any vehicle if they swing your way.

I have several, but my favorite:  light goes green for left turn lane as ambulance, police and fire trucks pass through intersection.  Every car behind the person in front, who isn't turning left while emergency vehicles pass through, starts laying on the horns.

And when was the last time the US had a famine? Ah, yeah, the dust bowl, since the subsidies were enacted not once. Stop biatching that the government has done one of its key functions and ensured you secure access to food.

The only time my '47 IH Cub Cadet or '59 IH 3444 hit the road is when it is necessary while on a job (no, the Cadet is not used for anything off the home premises) or to (rarely) fuel up < 1mile from the house. The IH 650 and 500E would tear up the street, so they never see pavement. Yes, people are a bit anxious when confronted with a rolling roadblock, but courtesy and awareness are best.

Combines and tractors in general have to drive on roads to get between connecting properties and wherever home base is.

Yes they're big. They're slow. Deal with it.

I will say I think farmers should take combine heads off and trailer those because they're multiple goddamn lanes wide. But the tractor? Roll on.

The combine harvester is really pretty badass. It has no regard for any other vehicle whatsoever. Look at him, he's just grunting, and eating care. Eew! What's that? A Buick? Oh that's nasty. They're so nasty. Oh look it's chasing vehicles and eating them. Combine don't give a fark.

Farmers *COULD* grade their own path inside their property. Especially the massive ones that go on for miles. I've seen farms where the county has even provided an overpass so the farming equipment can go underneath a road that bisects property. Over time, the overpass is cheaper than continually repairing roads from the damage caused.
 
2021-12-04 1:18:42 PM  
I grew up in an agricultural community. You got used to the trivial inconvenience of sharing the road with farm equipment.

But assholes gonna asshole I guess.

That seems weird to me. In my state, truck plates are required on any vehicle over a certain gvw, generally about a 1/2 ton truck. They're more expensive, and registration fees go up on a sliding scale with the gross weight rating of the truck.  "Farm" plates, on the other hand, are available to people with a minimum amount of agricultural property who do a minimum amount of gross sales; like a guy with a 2 acre hobby farm who sells $1000 worth of pumpkins in the fall can't get them. Farm plates allow for some valuable exemptions if they're really farm trucks, but come with a whole pile of restrictions that make them unsuitable for a farmer to slap on his personal vehicle to save a few hundred a year on fees and gas tax.
