A farm vehicle is defined as a truck or truck tractor determined by PennDOT to be exclusively used for agricultural purposes. Examples include pick-up trucks, grain trucks, tanker trucks and cattle trucks.
Farm vehicles are not farm machinery and equipment. The Pennsylvania Vehicle Code designates those vehicles as "implements of husbandry," when used on the farm. Different rules apply to farm vehicles than to implements of husbandry. See the Implements of Husbandry page and related links to find out more information on what may apply to implements of husbandry.
Farm vehicles are not passenger vehicles. Since farm vehicles only include trucks and truck tractors, cars and passenger vans do not qualify as farm vehicles.
