Exceptions to LENGTH requirements above: Length limits do not apply to vehicles operating in the daytime except on Saturdays, Sundays or legal holidays when transporting poles, pipes, machinery or other objects of a structural nature which cannot be readily dismembered, provided the length of the object being transported does not exceed 80 feet and the overall length of the load does not exceed 100 feet. Stinger-steered vehicles specifically designed to transport motor vehicles or boats may have an overall length of 75 feet plus overhang of 3 feet in front and 4 feet in the rear on Class I and II highways.

For such combinations manufactured subsequent to September 9, 1986, the minimum distance between the first and last axles of the two sets of tandems must be 18 feet 6 inches or more. 7 Permits may be issued for an overweight load providing it consists of one object that cannot be reasonably dismantled or disassembled.
