Harvest Weight Limits

The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is reminding farmers that fall harvest weight limits take effect from September 1st, through December 31st.

An overweight truck permit is not required for the transportation of corn, soybeans, potatoes, vegetables or cranberries from the field to initial storage, or from the field to the initial processing point. Under the law, those trucks with a typical gross weight of between 50,000 and 80,000 pounds are allowed to increase their weights by 15 percent for harvest activities.

This exception does not apply on Class "B" highways, posted bridges, or highways designated as part of the national system of interstate highways.
