Research Project
Highway Regulatory Guidelines for Farm Equipment Operations

This guidebook was developed at the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) as a result of a cooperative agreement with the Transportation Marketing Division of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The agreement provided funding to the UGPTI to compile relevant federal and state regulations pertaining to operations of farm equipment in a single easy to use reference.

The guidebook is divided into three regulatory sections which cover operator, vehicle, and hazardous materials requirements, in addition to a directory of state agencies. The information in the guidebook was compiled from federal and state regulations. State vehicle size and weight legal limits and allowable exemptions were collected through a survey of state permitting agencies and are included in the chapter on Vehicle Guidelines.

Principal Investigators: Ayman Smadi, Mike Saewart, Kevin Andres, and Brenda Lantz
