Ag Weigh, together with parent company Walz Scale, offer many different truck scales that meet the demands of farmers and agriculture-based companies. In this article, we describe three different types of trucks scales and why they are optimal for farmers and ag producers.

On-Board Scales

On-board scales are designed to help people out with many weighing functions. These scales can work by being linked to different spots on a truck bed and can then be calibrated to ensure that they will measure the weights inside the truck at the right possible rates.

These on-board scales are very popular as they come with some rather useful designs and are easy to install. In addition to on-board scales for trucks, these weighing systems can be added onto any kind of farm equipment and can easily be used to analyze how the load inside a truck bed is shifting in some cases. The need to adjust the setup in any spot can really be important to explore and can certainly be enticing for all who want to find ways to measure their materials on any farming site with care.

Portable Truck Scales

Portable truck scales from Walz are designed with bodies that features a series of slim and easy to handle bodies. These portable scales for weighing trucks are designed with regards to handling quick measurements as a truck moves over a scale. These are extremely versatile and affordable.

Portable truck scales are often designed with a series of sturdy and easy to handle features that can lock to any surface around a farm spot. In fact, a wireless connection can be utilized to link such a scale up to a computer, thus making it rather easy for all to utilize for many special weighing goals.

Weighbridges

Weighbridges are steel deck truck scales that are typically installed in set fixed spots. These scales are designed to be installed near fields, silos and other spots where large amounts of materials often have to be gathered. This can be linked to a dedicated computer or other device to help analyze the weights on any farm vehicle. In addition, this option is useful in that it can handle tens of thousands of pounds at any given moment, thus making it perfect for heavy duty weighing needs.

On-Board Truck Scales for Streamlined Crop Management

All seasoned farmers know the importance of accurate measurement of produce. It's a common sense fact during the harvest season that crop yields must be weighed, tracked, and monitored with ultimate precision. 

Modern computer technologies and breakthroughs in the overall agricultural sector have eased various activities that were previously overwhelming. Ensuring ultimate accuracy for the produce weights and amounts at business level is a farmer's primary objective.

Common in logistics and mining operations, on-board truck scales are becoming an indispensable element of high volume agricultural productions that can thrive from streamlining the weighing process. Below we discuss the value that on-board truck scales provide farmers for crop management and valuation. Learn more below or check out some of the on-board scales solutions at Ag Weigh.

What Defines "On-board" Truck Scales?

On-board truck scales basically refer to measurement and scaling systems used in agricultural applications to facilitate quick and accurate measurement of produce. They take the measure of trucks and the content within each. The scales may measure motionless trucks and carts or even those in motion. They can be easily installed in measurement systems to quickly capture weights and number of skid steers, trucks or carts loaded onto the piece of machinery.

Although the video below shows on-board truck scales in an industrial context, you easily see how these scale systems could help farmers and agricultural producers.

Modern on-board scales for measuring truck load weights exhibit the integration of computer technologies that feature sensors, processing units and displays where information is rendered. The sensors capture truck volume and any given point. Processors quickly calculate accurate weight and render the information to ergonomic displays. They also have memory capacities to enable simple storage of details like total volume and number of trucks among other relevant recorded data. You can also find wireless on-board truck scales, also referred to as smart scales.

Streamlining Weighing Processes with On-board Truck Scales On board truck scale readout

In the agricultural world, especially commercial production that involves the transport of goods via trucks, there are various goals and restrictions to abide by. On one side you should avoid overweight violations while on the other, your goal is maximizing payloads per truck load. On-board scales are not only important for the farmers but also very useful for companies that purchase agricultural produce and materials like fertilizer.

The information saved and kept in these on-board scales can be used as useful metrics to track productivity. This may overlap to broad details and relationships linking performances of given seasons and factors that influenced it. These scales are therefore a necessity for farmers and wholesalers alike. This streamlining and automation of measurement creates opportunity to minimize expenditure.

Helping Farmers in More Ways Than One

Onboard Grain Cart ScaleOn-board truck scales can also save time for man power and resources to be focused on other activities like production and maximizing of harvest or loading. Because these are in-motion truck scales that can calculate weights while the truck is moving, the result is efficiency in the agricultural processes and increased productivity. Since there are the sought measurement goals, on-board scales are vital for any agricultural venture. They can be installed on skid steers, grain carts and loaders among other loading and transportation equipment.

This level of versatile also helps tracking of volume and produce weights at every level of loading and unloading. For established companies with linear systems from harvesting to loading transportation and storage, this reduces transportation losses such as pilferage.

There are various types of on-board truck scales. However, all of them serve the same functions, although advanced options may exhibit various efficiencies. On-board scales are often portable and very easy to install. They are efficient and calculate accurate weight for each truck and payload, whether for grains, fertilizer or any other agricultural produce.
