Could a lorry be an Agriculutral vehicle?

On the look out for a water bowser and or a slurry tanker…… can buy a sensible looking rigid lorry for sub 10k which is competitive with the above.
Any idea if it can be reclassified? Wouldn’t be going more than 5 miles from base. Don’t fancy the cost of inspections and Trainning if it can be helped

Thinking about it if it was 4x4 you’d stand a better chance of getting classes as agri

we can quote for a bowser tank if required to go onto a flat bed trailer

If it’s only going to be water I’d consider sliding a tank into a tipping trailer. A lorry is better fir the road but once your in a field your either making a pile of ruts and compaction or going home from fear of getting stuck. Then put the money you’ve saved towards your next tractor with a 50kmh box. We run lorries fir moving grain off the fields, it’s quicker in dry weather but if the fields are soft it’s not much use. Then a chaser wagon has to move it all to the roadside.
 
There's a ford cargo tractor unit near here with a tractor hitch aswell as the fifth wheel coupling and back wheels from ( I think ) a fastrack. That's officially a tractor but he looks like he's doing more than 40 mph

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
