Pfreundt Wheel Loader Scales 

Wheel loader scales are an efficient and accurate way of loading material for hauling. Utilizing wheel loaders, sometimes called wheel weighers, is an added step that helps to ensure drivers are within the legal weight limits when hauling material. Drivers who haul loads that are overweight not only risk heavy fines if ticketed, but they risk their safety and the safety of other drivers as well. While wheel loader scales are not typically legal-for-trade, they do provide users with accurate, dependable results, and convenience.

Why use wheel loaders?

The use of wheel loaders helps increase efficiency. By using the wheel weigher, the loader can calculate the weight of a load while he fills the hauler. By doing so, he can tally the weight that is added to the vessel to ensure that the total weight does not cause the hauler to be under weight, leaving valuable space available for more product, or overweight, putting the driver at risk.

Because the wheel loader is not legal-for-trade, the driver must still visit a certified truck scale. However, he can feel secure that he will be within the allowed weight limit when verifying his load, therefore eliminating worries about wasted DOT hours spent returning to the facility to add or discard product. By saving that time, the driver is also saving his company money.

How do wheel loader scales work?

The wheel loader scales use a hydraulic sensor kit. This kit must be installed in the loader. These sensors are very sensitive and can quickly measure the weight of material being lifted by the equipment.
