In this area, I believe the DOT concentrates its efforts on those they believe to have flagrant violations. I drove route trucks, straight trucks licensed up to 48,000 lbs, for 30 years, and was never once pulled over by the DOT. In fact, I have been waved through a checkpoint a couple of times without them checking anything.
As for guys in the biz, I've never heard of, or seen, anyone transporting mowers being pulled over and checked. I see vehicles pulled over on a regular basis, but they are generally semi's, some kind of junky looking rig, or trucks hauling rock or gravel.
Same here. They have bigger fish to fry than pulling over lawn mowers
