Frequently Asked Questions

Extreme, Heavy-Duty Truck Scale Systems

Extreme, Heavy-Duty Performance

Our heady duty (HD) truck scales are built in both concrete and steel deck configurations.  The super heavy duty design of our HD-series truck scales is ideal for applications that require weighing large numbers of vehicles per day.  Our HD systems are designed to weigh 250+ trucks per day, without weighbridge fatigue. 

Extremely Durable Scales

Extremely Durable Scales

All HD models utilize up to 30% more structural steel than most other competitive models on the market today.  Our HD models feature more I-beams that are strategically placed longitudinally with the traffic flow to ensure tire support regardless of the trucks position.

Open Bottom Truck Scale Design

Open Bottom Truck Scale Design

All HD Series truck scales feature an open bottom design, this simple design feature is extremely important for extending the life of your truck scale.  Competitive models with closed bottom designs are extremely susceptible to moisture build up within the weighbridge.  This moisture trapped within the weighbridge will eventually cause the weighbridge to corrode and fail.
