First Fold Up Scale
When not in use, it folds up against a wall or partition, taking up only 6 in. of space. When in use, the hinged floor folds out and rests 1 in. above floor level, making it easy to move individual animals ù or carts containing small pigs or feed ù onto it for fast, accurate weighing.
The scale's frame attaches via mounting brackets and extends out 3¢ in. from the wall. With the hinged platform folded up against it, the entire unit takes up only 6 in. of alley space. It's easily carried through narrow gates and doors from one station to another.
Standard platform size is 20 by 49 in. for a 300 lb. capacity model and 24 by 60 for a 500 lb. model. A dial scale is standard, with a digital readout option also available.
