    I'm still confused on the requirements. I think I see things that say any GCWR of 10,001 lbs or more, which would be almost every truck and trailer is required to have a DOT # , inspection, doctors physical with medical cards. And others I see say only if you cross state lines, & others say 26,000 lbs.

    You make a great point, wondering the same, thanks for bringing it up, always makes me wonder when hauling stone or soil.

    I've heard you need to register with DOT if you a combined weight over 10k, if my memory serves me right.

    Feel free to correct

    I see about 1 out of 200, over 10,001 GVWR lawncare trucks with a DOT#. I talked to the owner of A&J garden center in Pennsauken & he said they got stopped by the DRPA bridge police after coming back from delivering stone in Pa.. I also had the guy from Jerry's Mobile Truck Repair tell me he got stopped on 295 by the weigh station around Salem by the state police.

    I guess if you go on the highways, you have a better chance of getting stopped. Both had vehicles that did not require a CDL. All the DOT info on the internet is confusing.

    Down in Maryland they seem to get stopped all the time from what I read on here.

    I need a different Stihl dealer. Two up by me take forever to get things repaired, that I can not do. All Seasons in Audubon & Voorhees Hardware. Waiting a month is nuts.

    Borries are great ppl, good call!

    I go to rental country for my stihl parts, not sure of turn around time,
    But one of the main mechanics is awesome, and makes sure to cover everything about a machine, from new to rental

    I went to Rental Country in Williamstown, but stopped. The service was good, but driving down RT 42 from 295 in the summer, especially Friday afternoon was a nightmare. Bumper to bumper. RT 295 to Borries has less traffic, especially since the traffic patterns have changed at the 42 intersection.
