I know there have been lots of threads beating this issue to death in various states, but here's an issue that just came up at work. Last week (not in the lawncare industry) I was driving a 2007 Chevy K3500 DRW with a GVWR of 12,000 lbs according to the sticker on the drivers door. I generally have not been driving, but the guy who regularly drives it (who also does not have his CDL) was on vacation. I was towing a trailer that, according to the sticker on it, was rated at 15,000 lbs. This puts the combination GVWR at 27k lbs. The CO CDL manual defines a class A as being for "Any combination of vehicles with a gross combination weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 pounds or more provided the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle(s) being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds." Does everyone else agree with me that, since I don't have a CDL, I was illegally driving this combination? Obviously nobody wants to be wrongly accused by their employees of running unsafely/illegally, so I want to be pretty sure that I was running illegally before bringing it up as an issue.
