If you register a vechical in Maine you will pay an exise tax that is based on it's value. I believe the op has the only registered tractor in Maine. At least exise tax is deductable on your income taxes. Aiso I believe if you contact your local state legislator you will get your money back.

If you follow the letter of the law then yes, technically a tractor in the state of Maine is only exempt from registration if it is used soley for farming or if your running it up to the local garage to get worked on. With that said I have never heard of any law enforcement officer or agency that honestly gave a crap about it. In my opinion Lisbon officers must not have enough to do. Has your issues been with the same officer or a multitude of different officers? This makes all of us look bad, there has got to be some common sense used in situations like this. I understand if you were using your tractor to commute to work every morning or if you are a flaming a##hole every time they deal with you then I could understand where they are coming from. From your posts on this forum I do not believe that is the case. :confused3: I am at a loss. Oh and for everyone else that posted here not all cops like donuts, some of us like bear claws, and cupcakes.
I always haul my chain saws and other tools in my bucket . So far i've only ran one saw over with the brush hog. luckily it was only a two week old ms290 . Wish i took a pic. of it , pieces spread all over. Never did find the chain
Dingo Man, I live in Hancock county. My shop is 1 1/2 miles from my house. I run the tractor back and forth a lot. I can drive it faster than loading and unloading from trailer. I have been passed by county and state police. They wave to me. Once I had a state follow into the shop yard, but he only wanted to warn me about a couple of breakins in the area. I do have a rear view mirror and do pull off the road for traffic coming up behind me. Sight distances are not good on this road and it is not real wide. I grew up in Cumberland county. Things in Maine are a lot different down that way now than when I grew up or where you and I live today.
