Low Cost Grain Test Weight Scale
One of the most popular features of the scale is its low price. It costs $24.95, plus $2 for shipping, and is nearly as accurate as official elevator scales costing several hundred dollars, says Berckes.
The new Accra-Test scale is easy to use. You simply fill the canister with the grain to be tested ù without packing the grain. Level the cone-topped canister with your hand or a straight-edge and lift the scale by the support ring. Move the adjustable weight until the bubble indicates the beam is level. Test weight can be read at the center of the weight in either metric or standard units.
Berckes notes that his scale can be used to check test weight on most grains, including corn, soybeans, wheat, sunflowers, oats, barley, flax and sorghum.
