It has gotten much tougher to "haul your own stuff" over the past years. CDLs and DOT numbers are just like DUIs, used to be you seldom heard of it.
There are so many issues with getting on a public road with a loaded trailer that it is safer to pay a licensed trucker to haul it.
If you end up in an accident, it could take everything you have to get out of it.
There are just too many that have jumped on the roads with faulty equipment, overloaded, inexperienced, etc.
It only takes one to make a big mess of kill people.
The troopers know all of the ricks, including "running at night" to avoid detection.

To answer your question, NO if you are not over weight, width ot height. Farmall M should be no problem

I have a 3/4 ton with a 24 ft bumper hitch trailer and have been in IL,WI,MI,IN,KY,TN,IA,and MO with no problems.

Just make sure everything works and truck and trailer are legal.

I have a class A CDL, so I stop at all weigh stations, but I also avoid them if possible.

Should be no problem if you do it right.

Lots of us haul collectible tractors-combines-pulling tractors-etc 10-20,000 miles per year and we cant afford to hire it all hauled.At $2-3.00 per loaded mile it would break us.

We arent going to let the fear of having a wreck keep us all at home.Most wrecks are caused by stupid drivers in cars around here.I cant remember the last time someone hauling a tractor in this area caused a serious wreck,much less a fatality.

I have insurance,have the proper equipment,have the load well secured,take lesser traveled roads,drive at 50-55 mph,and drive 1/2 mile ahead.

If you dont have the proper equipment then maybe one should hire it hauled.A 3/4 ton pickup with a HD 16-18 ft bumper hitch trailer will easily haul an M Farmall.I have a friend thats hauled a 4500 lb M Farmall puller around for 30 years with a HD 1970's 1/2 ton IH PU pulling a bumper hitch trailer.

You should be ok. If you have FARM plates, you may have issues in WI. Farm plates hauling a tractor may smell like doing something with the expectation of recompense.

The key words are; Your truck, Your trailer, Your tractor. Tractor is going to be used for parades and hay rides for the grand kids.

Enjoy the new tractor and your brief stay in our extremely highly taxed and regulated state! Oh yeah, if you wear a Packer shirt, they may go easy on you.

Eric, Really?

I thought that WI followed the DOT regs on cargo securement. They plainly state that 4 chains/binders are only needed when the wheeled cargo is 10,000 pounds or more. Under 10,000, you only need 2 chains and binders.

I sure hope that's right as I haul under 10k tractor and only have 2 chains!!

Can you please post more details on that? (Thanks!)

Merry Christmas,
jb

I have experienced no problems with a four point tie down on a flat-bed trailer with tractors of the M size...heck I drove an H through the belt line in DC on a home-made trailer towed by a half-ton pickup...make sure the trailer is registered and just be careful

I have a 53 Super H I haul with my 92 K 1500 5.7 4x4 on the 18' H&H bumper pull trailer. Everything works well I run about 55-60 mph when hauling. I have 2 chains one front and one back with binders. The thing I had to do was to call the Neb DOT about weight. I had to add weight to my trailer plates to ensure I didnt have any problems. They let me add 9,000 lbs on the trailer plates for $10 extra. Had I had to add that much on my truck it would have cost $60. Also make sure you take a jack incase you need to move the rear tires in so the tractor can go between the fender wells. When I picked up my SH and loaded it on the trailer, it was so rear heavy any speed above 50mph and the trailer would start to sway side to side, not a fun feeling. Hove fun on your road trip!!
