My sub for hauling dirt, NEVER goes on the highway loaded.
Another landscaping company's will not drive their isuzu's on the highway because of dot.
And then some guy in a 1/2 ton pickup will haul scaffolding 8' above the cab without any straps and dot can't touch him.
That sucks. We love our NPR and I cannot see ever using a truck and trailer for mowing but I can understand why they did it. I really never thought an NPR would even get a rise out of a DOT guy...I thought they were after big rigs.
