You understand the need for having accurate scales but high costs have kept you guessing. Scale-Tec offers a solution... you can build your own scale! We supply the Weigh Bars and indicator and you turn them into your scale of choice. Weigh Bars can be connected directly to the indicator which operates off a 12 volt DC power source.
Turn an existing pen, alleyway, or squeeze chute into a livestock scale simply by bolting four Weigh Bars under it and connecting them to an indicator. Your livestock scale can be large enough for a group of animals or it can be built for a single animal. Selectable motion filtering ensures stable indicator readings so you don't have to worry about livestock moving around on the scale.
A platform scale is one of the easiest scales to build. Weigh Bars are available in capacities for any farm scale application. For example, an on-farm truck scale will save money in several ways. You can verify incoming delivery weights, pre-check weights going out to the elevator or check grain yields to compare performance of different seeds, fields or fertilizers as well as not having to worry about getting a ticket for an over-loaded truck!
System capacities up to 200,000 lbs are available.
With an accuracy of + or - one half of one percent, the right scale kit for you will depend on the weight of the equipment, weight of the material and whether or not the application use is mobile.
