Blade Width Regulation
We successfully passed legislation in 2018 that allows for “A person may operate or move a truck to which a snowplow blade that is wider than 96 inches but no more than 132 inches wide is mounted without obtaining a special permit for an excessively wide vehicle or load (under section 725). This subsection only applies between October 1 and May 1 of each year. A person operating a truck described in this subsection shall minimize the overwidth condition of the snowplow blade when not engaged in snow removal by angling the plow blade or any other method. This subsection does not apply to a person operating construction equipment for snow removal.” Public Act 342 of 2018, Section 717(10). The full regulation is found in Public Act 342 of 2018.
