In considering the purchase of a nh472.width is like 10' 3" or so. Would have to be hauled likely but commercial truck. Would this be over width? I'm guessing yes. Not sure if it could be partially disassembled. Concerned the shipping cost will make it not affordable. There's just nothing in the nw that's the right size and available.

8 1/2 feet is maximum legal width. Anything wider needs an overwidth permit. If you can just hook on to the implement and go down the road, everything is legal.

That's what I thought. Have to reconsider. Ohio to
Washington is to far to pull a mower.

We moved one by setting on the trailer sideways with a loader and removing the hitch, blocked it well, chained it down and made a 300 mile trip home, no problems.

I pulled one 150 miles on the interstate behind my truck with oversized permit in hand. You need to keep looking for a closer one.

well If and again IF the pin holding the tong in will come out and a loader tractor is handy that is the way to load haul and ship one . It that main pin is froze let the fun begin . If it was able to have the tong and PTO removed and loaded as a LTL load i'll bet it would still be over 2 grand trucking . This is how i use to haul the when i was still buying and selling . The ones with stuck pins we would try and beat them out while the loader tractors had them standing on end with a sledge hammer , some got the gas ax put them and we would blow the pin out then buy a new pin , that is and ART from of not damaging the hole and getting down past where the tong will come out then once back at the shop we would try the fifty ton press , if that did not make it move then we would drill down thru the rest then take the gas ax and finish the job .

Update!
Hauled the 472 home the other day. Used my 8' wide gn trailer. The guy I bought it from had a good sized forklift with a hole in the fork. Just pushed it up the ramps with the mower in the cutting position. Fork lift stayed in the ground coming alongside the trailer. We then shifted the tongue and more the mower to a slight angle. We were still way wide! Flags on the overhangs and headed home. Must have seen 8-10 police cars along the way home about 75 miles. Not even a glance. Got home just before dark. Unloaded using a friend's forklift in the same manner. Glad that's done but no issues.

Glad you were lucky! Everyone thinks that the problem is the DOT, when the real issue is what if something goes wrong and someone is seriously hurt? It is so easy to call up and get a permit and be legal.

Highway patrol are not DOT enforcement. They won't bother you unless you're committing a moving violation like speeding, playing with your cell phone, not wearing a seat belt, etc.. They're not looking for DOT-related violations, and therefore won't even notice you being overwidth unless you're taking out mailboxes, garbage cans, or pedestrians.

When we hauled a grain drill home, sideways on my trailer, it was hanging over almost a foot on both sides. We called around ahead of time to the DMV, the Sheriff's, the State Police, and NOBODY HAD A CLUE about how to get an overwidth permit or who to even talk to about it. We finally decided to just go get it on a Sunday morning, and used the pickup truck with Agriculture plates on it. Only saw one county sheriff's deputy along the way, and they paid no attention to us. Again, not DOT, so not looking for those kinds of violations.

Barnyard engineering, do not know were you are at, but in Iowa some state troopers are D O T certified officers. Their cars are marked as state trooper D O T officers. They can and will stop any vehicle that is in violation of D O T rules and regulations.
