While operating on a highway, the following requirements apply. IOH that exceed 15 feet or operate over the center line of the road when traveling will be required to add some lights and reflective material, if not already installed as original equipment.
During daylight hours, lighting requirements for IOH that exceed 15 feet or that operate over the center line of the road when traveling are not applicable if:
An IOH in excess of 22 feet, in addition to any lighting and/or marking required must also be escorted by at least one vehicle with hazard lights activated. On two-lane roads the escort is the lead vehicle. On roads with two or more lanes with traffic going in the same direction, the escort vehicle will follow the IOH.
No escort is required for "incidental movements" from farm to field or field to field under 0.5 miles. The lighting, marking, and escort vehicle requirements noted above do apply if/when an IOH being operated or transported to and/or from an implement dealer for purposes of delivery, repair or servicing is within a 75-mile radius.
