Why Portability Matters in Truck Scales

Whether your fleet of vehicles is working in an industrial, commercial, construction, or agricultural setting, there are several reasons why portability matters when it comes to your truck scales. For many operations, in-ground and permanent truck scales are a solid solution — but for others, portability is key to increasing throughput and decreasing the amount of time your trucks spend going from point A to B. Here are just four reasons why you should consider a portable truck scale from Walz to be part of your business operations strategy.

Next-Level Flexibility

Many of today’s heavy-duty work environments require a truck scale to take place in temporary working zones. It’s in these instances that a portable truck scale becomes indispensable, and makes much more sense economically. Any one of Walz’s portable truck scales delivers quick, simple, and high-quality performance to any demanding job site, and they save you the expense of having to install an in-ground scale system. Modern portable scales can also be deployed on uneven terrains, like gravel, and still produce accurate readings. 

Convenient Intrinsic Features

Although portable truck scales may be smaller in size than traditional in-ground scales, their capabilities are comparable to permanent solutions. Many models can handle up to 20,000 pounds of weight on each pad. Even though a portable scale is mobile, you won’t be sacrificing any of the key features that you would expect from a permanent, in-ground solution. Portable scales have user interfaces that are either on the scale itself or conveniently connected via a control terminal.

You can rest easy knowing that you’re gathering the necessary payload data you need to keep your books accurate and truck loads under their legal limits, avoiding hefty fines that can occur with overloading on some roadways. 

Clear Readings for Data Collection

Being able to clearly read weight data on a digital screen is important on any job site, but especially when said worksite can be dirty, dusty, or messy. The combination of Walz’s ruggedly designed portable scales and the implementation of big, bright, easy-to-read digital displays provide you with the best scale solution available on the market today.
