Probably already covered this, but how do you go about registrering this thing to drive on the road? One of our customer's son has an LCO in NY State(we're in NH). One of his guys rode a Z-mower 3 miles to the bank to cash his paycheck... got a ticket for driving an unregistrered, illegal vehicle on a public roadway.
I know in NH if your licence is suspended for a DUI you can't even ride a commercial mower to mow your own lawn! (nor lawn tractor) This is just to say that mowers are viewed differently from state to state, but I'm sure there's more than one cop that will be bored enough to stop for a chat....
