Air-Weigh 5800 series now available directly from Kenworth or Peterbilt dealers

EUGENE, Ore. — Fleet owners and O/Os can now obtain the Air-Weigh 5800 series tractor scales directly from Kenworth or Peterbilt dealers.The Air-Weigh on-board truck scale is a load management system that is permanently installed in the dash and calibrated to each suspension on the vehicle. The unit has a display designed to automatically show each axle group’s weight on one screen, with no operator interaction required. It also has a single button used to display GVW and net payload weights. An alarm is included to warn of near-legal weight limit or over-legal weight on any axle or GVW. Company officials say the 5800 Series Tractor Scale is a major upgrade in efficiency and ease-of-use from old-fashioned, analog suspension air gauges. “Unlike a suspension air gauge previously used by drivers to estimate drive axle weight, Air-Weigh takes all the guesswork out by providing accurate, on-the-ground steer, drive, and trailer axle weights directly in pounds or kilograms,” the company said in a release.For more information visit
