Weigh Scale for Front-End Loader
Sheffield came up with the scale for his own use and then entered it in a national invention contest sponsored by the Farm Bureau. He got so much positive feedback from farmers who got a look at his entry, he decided to market it.
The scale consists simply of a special-designed gauge that tees into the hydraulic line that raises the loader. Can be installed anywhere between the control valve and lift cylinders. The scale has a 1/4-in. male connector. On most tractors, the scale can be attached directly to the line. With optional fittings, it can also be remote-mounted in the cab.
"Once installed you keep thinking of more ways to use it. It's great for weighing bales whether for sale or for feeding and is also a very good moisture indicator. Lets you weigh silage when using a grapple fork. And it lets you weigh pallets or bins of produce or feed," says Sheffield.
Sells for $125.99 with no connection fittings or $134.99 complete.
