Air-Weigh’s 5800 Series of on-board scales has been expanded to include a new model designed specifically for small fleets and owner/operators. The ‘Dedicated Tractor-Trailer Scale’, was designed to help operators with dedicated rigs save money on their purchase, while still capitalizing on the benefits of weighing on-board.
This Air-Weigh scale is permanently installed in the dash and calibrated to each suspension on the vehicle. By running the trailer suspension air line to the dash, there’s no need for a separate trailer scale. With no operator interaction required, the 2-inch gauge display automatically shows
the steer, drive, and trailer weights on one screen. A single button press displays GVW and net payload weights. A 12-volt alarm output is
standard and allows connection of an in-dash or exterior light or buzzer to warn of near-legal weight limit or over-legal weight on any axle or GVW.
Like all Air-Weigh scales, the Dedicated Tractor-Trailer Scale provides the ability to weigh while loading, liminating the costs associated with leaving the loading site under or overweight. In addition, there is no more wasted HOS time, missed delivery schedules, wasted out-of-route miles and fuel, or waiting in line to re-work the load.
All Air-Weigh products are backed by a 3-year warranty.
