Let's face it, the Department of Registration or DOT is here to stay. Complying with their laws and regulations can sometimes be tricky as little details can easily be overlooked. Everyone would admit that getting pulled over by a DOT official is annoying and a waste of time.

The main reason farmers that do a lot of crop spraying build a tender tank trailer, is to be more efficient. In most areas of the country, the window of time for spraying can be short, so time means everything. Improving your bottom line by working smarter can make a huge difference.

To give you some ideas and inspiration, I decided to put together a quick reference guide that includes some must-haves on a tender tank trailer.
