First 3-Pt Mounted Portable Weigh Scale
The portable weigh scale is accurate to within ? 1% and has a capacity of 40,000 lbs., according to Mike London, Hiniker sales manager. It can also be used to weigh individual axle loads of large trucks and semi's.
The 1,800 lb. scale fits on any Cat. II 3-pt. tractor for moving from place to place. It can be set right on flat, bare ground. Power is supplied through a 12V battery, or it can be plugged into 110V household current with an available adaptor unit.
"The scale also includes an alarm system that lets you pre-set a target weight," London told FARM SHOW. "When you reach that weight, the alarm sounds so you can quit loading and prevent expensive overweight citations. The alarm can also be used in reverse for unloading a certain amount off a truck. "We think cow-calf operators, and anyone who's renting or share-cropping their land are prime prospects for this new-style scale," London adds.
It sells for $4,200.
