Ill just tell the cops i use it for tileing the muddy feilds
Here is what you do.
(1) lift it to extreme heights
(2) put the biggest tractor tires you can find on it
(3) do a half ass green paint job
(4) put one of those cool orange triangles on it
(5) say its a "farm" tractor


Let me know how that works out for you

Don't forget stacks with flappers, especially if you can make it blow lots of black, sooty smoke out.

7-5.8 Farm Plates. All farm vehicles used on-road, other than implements of husbandry, must
be titled and registered. A customer may select one of three types of farm plates. These are
described below as Options 1, 2 and 3.
a) Option 1: $20 Special Farm Plate. To qualify for this plate, the farm vehicle
must be a truck (including pickup or van) or road tractor. It must be used
exclusively for one or more of the following:
1) Transporting farm crops or livestock bedding between the field where
produced and the place of storage. A grain elevator is considered a place of
storage. “Livestock bedding” means straw, sawdust, or sand.
2) Transporting fertilizer, seed, or spray material from the farm to the field.
3) Transporting feed from on-farm storage to an on-farm feeding site. “Feed”
means hay or silage.
Chapter 7: RD-108 – Application for Title and Registration Page 15
The truck cannot be used for any other purpose, including transportation of crops
for compensation (commonly called “custom work”). This plate is ordered
through the Secretary of State office. The owner will receive the plate in the mail
within 10 days.
b) Option 2: Farm Plate Rate of 74¢ per 100 Pounds, Plus $8. Any farm truck or
truck tractor can qualify for this reduced rate license plate. The truck must be used
exclusively in connection with the farming operation and can also be used for the
transportation of the farmer and the farmer’s family. The truck cannot be used for
hire. An individual, company, or corporation can operate the farm. The fee is
based on the empty weight of the truck. Use the fee chart for farm trucks in
booklet MV-118, Michigan License Plate Fees and Base Prices.
A tree nursery, landscaping service, or greenhouse may choose this special farm
rate for a truck used exclusively in its farming operations. The farm truck can be
used to transport farm products from the farm, field, or greenhouse (the harvest
location) to a wholesale or retail outlet. The truck cannot be used for delivery
from the sales lot or store.
Fees and expiration dates are determined as follows:
1) Pickups and Vans Owned by an
Individual
Plate expires on the farmer’s birthday
(prorated fee)
To prorate this fee, find the 12-month weight fee for the pickup truck or van using
the fee chart for farm trucks found in booklet MV-118, Michigan License Plate
Fees and Base Prices. Subtract $8 from the fee shown and then divide it by 12 (do
not round). Multiply this amount by the number of months to the farmer’s
birthday. Round this amount to the nearest whole dollar. As a final step, add $8.
There is no service fee.
2) Pickups and Vans Owned by
Business and All Other Farm
Trucks
Plate expires on February 28 (if over
6,050 lbs., the truck is eligible for a
partial year plate – see below); use the
farm plate fee chart.
3) Farm Trucks over 6,050 lbs. The farmer may choose:
a) A full-year plate expiring February 28. Use the farm plate fee chart.
There is no service fee;
b) A plate expiring six months from the date issued. Use the farm plate fee
chart and add the $10 service fee; or,
c) A special prorated farm plate sold for 3 to 12 months. See Option 3.
c) Option 3: Prorated Farm Plate. A farmer (individual or business) may buy a
prorated farm plate under Option 3 for any number of months from 3 to 12. The
empty weight of the truck must be over 6,050 pounds to qualify. There is a $10
service fee.
Revised June 2006
Chapter 7: RD-108 – Application for Title and Registration Page 16
NOTE: When prorating this fee, the law requires the farmer to pay 1/10 the fullyear
farm fee for each month desired (divide the full-year fee by 10 instead of 12).
To calculate this fee for 3 to 12 months:
1) Find the 12-month weight fee for the truck using the fee chart for farm trucks.
2) Subtract $8 from the 12-month fee and then divide by 10. This is the fee per
month (do not round).
3) Multiply the fee per month by the number of months requested. Round to the
nearest dollar. Add $8 and then add the $10 service fee.

Just drive it.

When you get pulled over, kick the cop in the junk and take his squad car so he can't chase you.

What's the plan when they ask to see your tax id number? Is your id (assuming you have one) tied to agriculture production? More information on just what kind of ag operation you're running would help us determine if you have any chance. Also any pics of this mobile Meth lab?




Oh and hi guys I'm new here. Nice place you have here.

Tax ID for most single owner/operator farms is the farmers SS#. It's like that with most domestic jobs (house cleaning, etc.)

I don't disagree zook. One thing I know and I don't know much is the agriculture industry. Its what I went to college for. I went were real farming happens the Midwest. Sign a few ag exemptions without truly having a farm and see what happens. I'm just simply asking if the op really farms or if he is looking to abuse the use of a farm plate.

Don't worry, his truck will have an awesome smoke switch. As soon as someone magically figures out how to fix it over the internet.

Just because you have Farm plates doesn't give you a pass to drive unsafe garbage on the street.
Well no shit! I did say my jeep was a half assed pile of shit its built right and stupid strong
But anyways log plates let you use a vehical for special farm use hence no lift limits

If you already have the plate on it and believe that makes it legal, then why are you asking? Start a new thread when you get your ass reamed by a cop, and how you plan on talking the judge out of doing the same.
