EUGENE, Ore. — Air-Weigh has expanded its 5800 Series of on-board scales to include a new model designed for small fleets and owner/operators.
The Dedicated Tractor-Trailer Scale has been introduced to help operators with dedicated rigs save money on their purchase while still reaping the benefits of being able to weight their loads quickly and easily.
The system is a true load management system, the company says, which is installed on the dash and calibrated to each suspension on the vehicle. The trailer suspension air line is run to the dash, making a separate trailer scale unnecessary.
A two-inch display shows the steer, drive and trailer weights on one screen and a press of a button will also reveal the GVW and net payload weights. An alarm warns the operator if his weight is near the limit, at the limit or over the limit.
The system allows users to weigh their loads while loading, eliminating the costs associated with leaving the loading site under- or overloaded.
