     In Florida, the DMV says if it's towed behind a vehicle it's a trailer and needs a tag.  Trailer tags are rated/priced by weight.  An LT50 makes for a pretty heavy "trailer."
I had a CHP officer tell me if it has wheels that touch the road in California, it needs plate...

I find this interesting because when I lived in California I was riding with a friend while towing his mill. He got stopped for a taillight and was told that buying plates was a waste of money on implements of husbandry. He took the plates off and quit paying fees.

A case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing.

I actually had the Mississippi Highway Patrol "Fatality Investigator" to tell me to put a Triangle on my sawmill. 

I did and ran if for several years and then added the flasher.

The present setup is a rectangle and the flasher.  My idea was/is to eliminate any possible depth perception between the uneven tail/stop lights.

Virginia law says:

Exemptions for Sawmill Operators and Farmers Transporting Wood Products

Tractors, trailers, log carts or similar vehicles owned by a sawmill operator are exempt from registration when the vehicle is operated along a highway from one sawmill or sawmill site to another, to or from a repair shop for repairs or across a highway from one adjoining tract of land to another. (Va. Code 46.2-669)

So I'm assuming no tag required...
