Wheel Load Scales Eliminate Overloading

Wheel Load Scales are being hired to the Gold Coast City Council for ensuring trucks transporting waste comply with legal axle loadings when on public roads.

Supplied by Accuweigh’s Brisbane branch, three pairs of Wheel Load Scales are configured for weighing tri-axle trailers loaded with heavy skip bins containing compacted waste for landfill.

Accuweigh’s recently released Road Guardian wheel load scales utilises advanced weighing technology for improved truck wheel weighing accuracy. The self-contained weigh pads feature a low height profile of only 32mm to allow for easy truck access while minimising potential weighing errors caused by out of level wheels.

Wheel load scales are a very cost effective means of ensuring vehicle axle loadings comply with legal weight limits. Under the Chain of Responsibility legislation, each and every person and company even remotely involved in the loading and transportation process can be held partly responsible and incur heavy fines.

Manufactured from aluminium for strength and corrosion resistance, each axle weigh pad weighs only fifteen kilograms to allow them to be easily manoeuvred into position with minimal effort. Each axle weigh pad is fitted with its own integrated weighing indicator that is fully integrated into the carry handle and is powered by six AA-size batteries located in the display housing for full portability.

Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company and has eight branches across Australia providing complete service support on all wheel load scales, weighbridges plus all types of scales and weighing equipment.
