implements of husbandry


implements of husbandry
Farm implements. As something exempt from a statutory requirement of registration of motor vehicles, a vehicle designed and used primarily as a farm vehicle but which may be operated or moved temporarily upon the highway. Allred v J. C. Engelman, 123 Tex 205, 61 SW2d 75, 91 ALR 417. A statutory definition of an "implement of husbandry" as a "vehicle which is designed for agricultural purposes and exclusively used by the owner thereof in the conduct of his agricultural operations" includes a grain combine being hauled on the highway by a tractor, so as to bring such combine within the statutory exception of "implements of husbandry temporarily moved upon a highway" from restrictions as to width of vehicles on the highway, although at the time of the accident the combine was being hauled by its owner, a farmer, to the farm of another, some eighteen miles away, to be used by the owner in combining soybeans for a fixed fee. Worthington v McDonald, 246 Iowa 466, 68 NW2d 89, 47 ALR2d 135. Any instrument used directly in the business of farming, and for no other purpose is an implement of husbandry. Horse rakes, gang plows, headers, threshing machines, and combined harvesters are as clearly implements of husbandry as are hand rakes, single plows, sickles, cradles, flails, or an old fashioned machine for winnowing. There is no ground for excluding an implement from the operation of the exemption statute because it is an improvement and supplants a former implement used with less effectiveness for the same purpose. Estate of Klemp, 119 Cal 41, 50 P 1062.
