Portable Weight Scales

 

Portable Weight Scales

Hello all,

At the last EUFMC I asked who was utilizing portable weight scales in their Fleet Operations and over half of the people in the room put their hands up. I've been doing some research recently, but the vendors I've been talking to do not provide any demos or the ability to try their product. I'm looking for some feedback from anyone who is currently utilizing portable weight scales to hopefully hear a success story or two with a specific brand so that I have better direction when it comes to purchasing some of these in the future. As always, I appreciate everyone's time and feedback.

Thank you,

At Dominion Virginia Power we are currently using the Intercomp PT300 RFX Wireless Wheel Load Scale Part# 100127-RFX Pad 0nly Capacity: 20,000 lbs. x 20 lb Increment 2.4 GHz Wireless Radio & Includes Charger for each pair of pads with a 4 year warranty. We have been using them for about 2 years now and I m not aware of any issues and the batteries seem to stay charged for a good amount of time. I would highly recommend you get them in the 20 lb. increments. If you need any additional information on them I can give you a contact name.

Thanks

I would suggest checking with your DOT to see what they use for road side inspections. In MN the CMV inspectors have some light weight super thin portable scales that the tandems fit nicely on.
