haha, thats crazy there isn't a uniform enforcement policy, or set of rules for that matter for us. I know in Kansas the lawn guys had to be an afterthought. What the head cheese in charge told us was the the tag on the truck had to cover actual weight....which was weird because everything else goes off possible weight. I run 20m's on all my regular work trucks, just because with a truck, trailer, skid, mini ex, even a trailer full of mowers, it dont take long to hit 20k. What a mess this is, I'm glad i'm not the only one wishing there was a common standard for them all to follow. At least I'm in good company.
