Implements of Husbandry (IOH) Weight Limit Requirements
The state has passed legislation requiring agricultural equipment, including tractors, combines, and other pieces of equipment that by definition of the new law meet the standards of being called implements of husbandry or agricultural commercial vehicles (Ag CMV), to follow weight and size limits when traveling upon public roadways.
Your Town Board came to its decision on this matter after numerous discussions which included the input from public meetings and consultations with neighboring towns, agricultural contractors and farmers.
The Town will be taking the same action as our neighboring Towns and adopting the basic requirements of the new law in regards weight limits on town roads.
The Town of Pittsfield will not require any special action for implements of husbandry or Ag CMVs UNLESS they wish to use the roads while exceeding the basic weight limits of 23,000 pounds per axle or a total 92,000 pounds gross weight. Follow this link to a state website with a table showing the allowed 15% increase. CLICK HERE to view the IOH/Ag CMV table. This table is what now controls for IOH/Ag CMV weights, on town roadways.
A permit may be submitted for permission to exceed these weight limits adopted by the Town.
The Town will use the State Standard Applications M2582 and M2583 as No-Fee Permits.
The permits can be accessed at the Wis. DOT website at: http://www.dot.state.wi.us/business/ag/permits.htm
Submit completed permits to the Town Zoning Administrator Debbie Diederich at one of the following:
Attach and send by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org (put IOH in Subject line)
Fax to: (920) 865-2001
Mail to: IOH Permit, 6532 Old Highway 29, Seymour WI 54165
Additional information on the new law is also available at this DOT website. http://www.dot.state.wi.us/business/ag/index.htm
