Air-Weigh now offers “cost effective” scales designed for refuse vehicles built with air or walking-beam rear suspensions. The refuse-vehicle scales are available in the company’s LoadMaxx and QuickLoad product lines.
As with other Air-Weigh digital on-board scales, you get an in-dash display that shows GVW and net payload, plus steer- and drive-axle weights.
It can be installed on any refuse truck with an air-ride suspension, Hendrickson HAULMAAX, or Hendrickson HN462 suspension. The new scale incorporates Air-Weigh’s deflection-sensor technology, which allows for accurate weight measurement on steer and drive axles with mechanical suspensions.
Air-Weigh says its scale offers programmable alarms to indicate warning and overweight conditions, multiple digital data interfaces capable of transmitting weight information to on-board computers, PIN-protected dual-point calibration, and are easy to install, calibrate, and maintain.
