    Cant go over 26k gvw combined IE truck has 18k gvw trailer has 12k = 30 k gvw combined that means class A CDL. Now it is legal to tow up to 10k worth of equipment behind the same truck with no cdl. By equipment I mean something like an Air compressor or wood chipper, something that does not need licence plates.

    You can go over 26,000 combined as long as the towing unit is under 26,000 and the towed unit is under 10,000.

    That posts makes no sense at all. :hammerhead:

    If it doesn't need license plates why would you be limited to 10k? :rolleyes:

    But yes you can go over 26k. 26k GVWR truck towing a 10 GVWR trailer = 36k CGVWR = No CDL.

    They have the examples I'm talking about. As for the "equipmet under 10k" it gets a little weird, I owned a tree service we had a bucket truck (GMC 6500 with 25,500 gvw) we could tow the one chipper with that truck because the chipper weighed in at 9,800 lbs gvw Could not tow the 7k gvw equipment trailer with the same truck without a cdl A. I found out the hard way at a dot stop, I got the out of class ticket. Differance was the chipper is classified as "Equipment / Single use Trailer" not required to have plates so under Federal dot your allowed up to 10k gvw NO CDL Required as where the Equipment trailer requires plates its not considered equipment you can't go above 26 k gvw combined.
