Neither of us had thought about the inspector actually checking a lawn maintenance rig...but yes I have to have the other companies name in at least 1.5 inch blocks on my trucks and trailers ...that is in the works now in the form of wraps as they have to be permenant and not a magnetic sign etc.
It could of gone worse....but the inspector was understanding especially considering I did have my spill kit, id card on a lanyard etc even though I had to switch from my normal vehicle because of a fuel pump. He was understanding and that helped. I am sure me actually being happy and stating that I was happy to see them stopping lawn guys made me happy did not hurt either.
I was glad to finally meet them and see that they are actually stopping lawn rigs after years of paying and obtaining and maintaining a limited without ever seeing a agent in the field. Makes it all worth it knowing some lawn guys who choose not to go the legal route got fined yesterday!
