    Do you need a permit for your plow?
    https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=169&view=chapter#stat.169.468
    Subd. 1b.Permit for snowplowing vehicle.

    The commissioner or a local authority may issue an annual permit to a person that authorizes the person to operate on any highway under the jurisdiction of the grantor of the permit, a motor vehicle bearing a snowplow blade that when deployed does not exceed ten feet in width. The permit authorizes operation of the vehicle between October 1 and April 1.

    It's just a question?:dizzy:lol

    Also I belive there is a width permit needed for plows
    That are10ft or wider?
    I dun seen it be fer, but ihavent run into it lately.

    8'6" "transport width" is the max, be it a plow, load on a trailer, whatever. Anything wider needs oversize permits, markings and flags

    ok now you an pile it on.:waving:

    With oversized permits are you required to have blinky lights and if so what coulor.

    The $5.00 permit fee is a yoke, it probably doesn't cover cost to process it.
    They also want to have your FIN or SSN and customer contact info too.....WFT

    I'll take Sugarbeets, there's more money in them.Thumbs Up

    Sno if you have a dulley pickup with oversize tires (width) with the correct weight rating and air pressure for the vehicle that has the vehicle over the 102" limit are you required to have a permit.

    I typically get more than 10% overweight in the winter with all of the Hooter's trips...

    And know that I found that BAC can be .08 and still drive home, I may need more like 20% overweight..

    That is a not a snow plow, it is a truck, and i believe they are at the max width?

    Buy the looks of it they are 2 different things.
    One is a snow plow the other a truck.;)



    Do try to keep things on topic...xysport

    Yes, and the tax for being above Avg.
    Put on hard working men.

    Why would you need a Ag permit to push up windrows in a field?
