Portable Platform Scales

The Portable Platform Scale is an economical solution to weigh truck axles, single or tandem.  Two weights are required for a straight truck, three weights for a semi-truck.  The scale comes in multiple sizes, the most common is 8' x 10' x 7" tall. Most often a concrete support footing is poured on each end and the deck is recessed so the weighing surface is ground level. Typically, the digital readout is positioned ahead of the driver so they can see the readout from the driver's seat.  The visibility of the readout is 30'.  The scale comes with about 17' of cable out of the standard deck.  (Additional cable or a junction box with a single lead can be ordered.) Typical accuracy with this method is 99.5%.  The scale can also be used in a more mobile application where the deck is set on firm level ground and optional ramps and/or removable wheels and tongue are utilized.  Typical accuracy with this method is 99%.  One popular option is the Model 915 Automatic Print System where axle weights are accumulated and the totals are printed automatically.  It will also print the time, date,  I.D. number, as well as Gross, Tare, and Net.  Sometimes two decks are utilized to measure a vehicle in one weight.  We also custom build these decks to meet specific size requirements.
