PORTABLE TRUCK SCALES

Massload Axle Pad Scale

Massload Axle Pad Scale

These weight pads have a very large weighing surface and low profile making them our easiest method of determining truck axle weight. These weight pads are typically sold in pairs but can also be sold in multiples to get complete trailer or truck weight in one weighment. Truck axle scales can be used with ramps for above ground installations or flush with concrete for a pit-installed permanent application. Above ground installations are forklift portable and should be used with quick disconnect cable (see options).

  • 84" x 30" axle pads for dual axle truck weight; 30,000 lbs per pad (60,000 lb per axle grouping)
  • 144" x 30" axle pads for tri-axle truck weight; 40,000 lbs per pad (80,000 lb per axle grouping)
  • 6" low profile for ease of use

TRUCK AND RAIL SCALES

Western Truck/Rail Scale

Western Truck and Rail Scales

Combination truck and rail scales provide one scale capable of weighing both types of vehicles. A section of rail is used to weigh rail cars, and an integral concrete deck forms the weighbridge for weighing trucks.

Western vehicle/rail scales can be used to weigh both trucks and railroad cars. They are ideal for grain elevators and other operations where both types of vehicles are weighed. Reduces costs because one scale can handle all weighing needs. Weighbridge converts a section of railroad track into a scale. Trucks are weighed on an integral concrete deck.


Features of these scales include:

  • 60,000-lb dual tandem axle continuous duty
  • Custom scales for all rail sizes and gauges
  • Pandrol e-clip rail fastening system option
  • Manholes provided for pit access
  • Durable stainless steel junction box stands
  • Steel blasted to SSPC-SP6
  • Maximum Capacity: 340,000.0 lb.
  • Readability: 50 lb.

Rice Lake Rail Scale

For weight verification and other non-NTEP needs, the RailBoss rail scale is a cost-effective and easy-to-install method for weighing stationary railroad cars. Powered by Rice Lake's 920i® and RailBoss software, RailBoss can be purchased as an eight-section Full-Draft system, or a simpler four-section Double Draft model.

Many scrap yards, agricultural operations and plants that could not justify the space, installation time and cost of a conventional rail scale can afford to install our RailBoss rail scale. It usually takes less than eight hours to install and is less than one-third the cost.


Due to the wide variety of installation configurations, please consult the factory to discuss application requirements and to receive complete specifications and price quotations.
