Scale Kit Lets You Weigh Grain On-The-Go
There are many times when it would be helpful for farmers to weigh grain while still in the field. A new easy-to-install retro-fit scale kit makes it possible to convert existing wagons.
  "Our scales allow the producer to quickly obtain field yield totals or check strip yields," says Dean Toews of Triple Star Mfg. Ltd. "They're also helpful for maximizing truck loads or calibrating combine yield monitors. Farmers like having inventory totals for marketing and crop insurance reasons, too."
  Kit consists of three load cells, a gauge, mounting hardware, and cables. The compact 640 model gauge provides basic readouts and field totals and has hookups for a memory card or printer. It has a 3-year warranty.
  The system is typically accurate to 0.5 percent, and will fit any model of grain cart, according to Toews.
  The kit is priced at $3,495 (Can.) plus S&H and will weigh up to 1,000 bu. For larger grain carts, the company can supply custom kits.
  "We also carry a full line of scales for livestock, axle, platform and seed tender situations. We sell weigh bars that can go under anything people want to weigh," says Toews.
