HALIFAX, N.S. – TruckWeight.com has launched a wireless scale to help truckers make sure their cargo is safe and legal every time they’re on the road.
Starting at US$799, the scale can be self-installed in minutes, enabling drivers to know the exact weight of their vehicle and weight per axle anytime, anywhere, with the simple press of a button.
TruckWeight works with any vehicle or trailer with an air suspension system.
To activate TruckWeight, the user tees a tiny sensor directly into the air suspension of each axle group on their truck’s configuration – no parts, wires, or mechanical know-how required.
Once calibrated, TruckWeight sends up-to-the-minute weight information to the handheld display, providing truckers with accurate measurements within 150 lbs. each and every time in their choice of kilos or pounds.
“This technology makes life so much easier for truckers,” says TruckWeight user Bob Dylan of Laser Transport of the Detroit, Mich. area. “With TruckWeight, I always know exactly how much weight I’m putting on and where while I’m loading. I don’t have to guess anything.”
