Weigh Scale Designed For Skid-Steer Loaders
RDS Technology's "Weighlog 2" weighs and records weights to an accuracy of plus or minus 2 percent of a load by measuring the hydraulic pressure in the lift arms. A microprocessor converts the hydraulic pressure to pounds as the lift arm raises.
The unit has an illuminated LCD readout that can be used to track weights of up to five different materials. It gives you the weight of each load and a total of all loads handled. If you're mixing feed, you can weigh each ingredient and get a total for each.
The system fits virtually any skid-steer loader and can be adapted to many tractor front-end loaders. It sells for $1,600.
