thanks,

A business license will run you $150/year and a commercial pesticide applicator license will cost $80/year and you need both of the these for your business if you wantto use pesticides. Not to mention you need insurance. Also you need 40 hours of on the job training or take a class for $125/class if the on the job training is not available to you plus you must pass a core and category exam.

I pay about $500 per year for 1 mil/2 mil, chems apps and mowing included, for another few hundred I can insure my equipment (I don't), you are at the insurance companies mercy for what replacement cost are for equipment...it is not full replacement cost, the will only give you market value.

One claim and you are dropped in most cases, and maybe even blacklisted.

Your trailer should be insured by the vehicle its attached to, but ask them directly and specifically...they will weasel out of anything and everything.

you need to put in the legwork yourself and figure out what you need instead of asking the same questions over and over

You do not need the DOT # if you are dumping it on a farm. Im not sure about the insurance call an insurance rep for quotes. Trailer insurance is up to you, you have to see what your truck insurance will cover if you have a trailer hooked up to it. Also if you do not get commercial insurance on your truck then you cannot have it lettered up.
