Truck Scales

Big purchases can take a lot of energy; there are a lot of factors to consider and you want to get it right. We can help narrow the selection quickly and our technicians can make sure it’s installed and maintained properly. We offer truck scales for most applications up to 800-ton capacities and the related services; no detail left behind.

Choosing a Manufacturer

Despite the number of manufacturers out there, we only recommend two for the west coast, with a few exceptions for specialty applications. It’s our opinion that scales by other manufacturers (namely larger brands) are too burdened with overhead and features that only add perceived value.

Rockwell

Rockwell Scales are over-built with analog load cells. This means they last forever, are easy to operate, and are inexpensive to repair and maintain. And coming out of Montana, the shipping is often several thousand dollars cheaper than other offerings.

American steel is less prone to production & source variations which can be responsible for pores in plates and low carbon levels.
Analog load cells require less maintenance than digital because they’re less complicated and don’t rely on a pin-and-cup design (the edges of pins get rounded off by the cup over time.)

Their paint, rails, safety markers, and materials are all customizable and we can interface different controllers and displays. Another benefit is their textured surfaces (also customizable.) These allow much more reliable grip, whereas the conventional diamond pattern is less than great in the rain.

Rockwell makes full-length scales, axle scales, low-profile, and portable truck scales. They’re used in many industries including weight verification, traffic light scales, and aggregates.

Cardinal

Cardinal is a quality manufacturer that offers more product and technology variations than any other (most scales do come in a 3/8” option). As such, there are too many variations to list, but they include wireless data, in-motion weighing, RFID & IoT integration, and analog, digital, and hydraulic load cells.

Digital load cells are able to transmit more data than just weight, such as cell health.
Hydraulic load cells, for all intents and purposes, are indestructible and come with true lifetime warranties.

Cardinal Scales are almost endlessly customizable, save textured surfaces. They’re used in every industry including weight enforcement and aggregates.
