Putting a license place on an LT40HD?
« on: February 25, 2016, 12:38:48 PM »
OK, so in WA State you have to license trailers but I didn't see any good place other than the fenders to do this.  Has anyone else had to put on a plate and if so, where did you place it?  How?

Thanks!

This is a picture of my old 1994 LT40.  It had a license plate bracket with a tag light.  You can see it just below the manual toe board. 

I now have a new LT40, but I can't remember if it has the same tag bracket...this has my curiosity up.  I will have to check when I get home.

We don't need a plate here in NC.  That is probably why I have not noticed.

Mine is hanging beneath the rearmost fixed rail.  Woodmizer put it there. There is a license plate light above it.

Jeff may soon stop by and tell you that "a sawmill is not a trailer".  Are you sure it is regarded as such by your state, or might it fall into a different category with woodchoppers, log splitters, generators, etc?

Found it!  Right where you suggested!

Too easy.

And yes in WA State it is required though they don't have 'sawmill' under trailers so wrote it in LOL

In Maryland, I have a "mobile equipment tag" on my woodmizer.

Eric, But an LT40 is not a trailer, it is a piece of equipment, kind of like certain farm implements!

Maybe it doesn't need to be plated!

I know all states are different, here in NY a plate is not required!

Gotta have a plate in BC. Even though it's a sawmill, it's considered a trailer here. The rules vary all over the map.

When I bought my mills, the WM rep sent me to one specific agency because they were the only ones who had figured out how to handle the plates for a sawmill.

In WA state (where OlJarhead is located) if it is towed behind a vehicle it is a trailer. Yes I know some individuals have strong opinions that they hold saying otherwise but in WA state it is a trailer and must be licensed as such.  Been around and around on this one many, many times.  Each state has their own rules and we have 50 different states. 
Canada has ten provinces and three territories.  Does their national system override the provincial or do they vary as much as we do down here?

I agree as for NY. It falls under agricultural equipment, same as my hydro seeder, my firewood processors I have had were the same, wood splitter, wood chippers etc. WHere is gets funky here is for example, I was carrying seed, fertilizer or mulch bales on the seeder, then it is a trailer.

It is all over the map here too. Each province establishes their own rules for licensing drivers and vehicles.

About a week after I bought my mill last August Wood-Mizer sent me a certificate of origin for just the trailer kit portion of my mill (LT40HD). I was able to use that to get a title (NH requires it) and my plates.

Too late now but would be nice if they sent that with a price on it for JUST the trailer...then I'd not have to pay the taxes on the whole thing! lol

Are you talking property tax or sales tax?

Sales

Bought the mill in OR (no sales tax) pulled it back to WA (sales tax) and since I need to tow it around I have to register it which means I have to pay the taxes in WA on it....cost me $2300!  :o
