Air-Weigh’s 5800 Series tractor scales are now available direct from Kenworth and Peterbilt dealers through PACCAR Parts, with optional installation service as well. The on-board truck scale is a load-management system that’s permanently installed in the dash and calibrated to each suspension on the vehicle. The 2-in. gauge display automatically shows each axle group’s weight on one screen, with no operator interaction required. A single button press displays GVW and net payload weights. Trailer axle-group weights from any Air-Weigh equipped trailer automatically appear on the axle-weight screen. An alarm output is standard and allows connection of an in-dash or exterior light or buzzer to warn of near-legal or over-legal weight on any axle. The 5800 Series tractor scale includes all the functionality of earlier versions of Air-Weigh scales and is said to be a major upgrade in efficiency and ease of use compared to analog suspension air gauges. It provides accurate, on-the-ground steer, drive, and trailer axle weights in pounds or kilograms. All Air-Weigh products are backed by a three-year warranty. For more information, see your Peterbilt or Kenworth dealer.
