Scale Length & WidthTruck scales are made in a number of widths and standard lengths. Some truck scales for sale, like those by Walz Scale, can also be custom made to the client's desired size for extra cost. Make sure that the truck scale you buy can accommodate the vehicles' wheelbase that you will be weighing.
Room For MovementIt’s vital to put into consideration the turning circle of the longest vehicle that will make use of your truck scale. A huge amount of space is required for ease of movement for the trucks. Ensure that you consider if there is enough driving space if more than one truck is in the surrounding of the scale.
Truck Scale LocationThe weighing site(s) of your business can help narrow-down the type of truck scale is ideal for your location. Above-ground and in-ground truck scales need specific forms of location requirements, let alone the fact that most of these systems are fixed and cannot be moved. Above-ground truck scales do not need a pit foundation, because they are placed on top of level ground.
However, in ground truck scales, after installation, are level with the surrounding ground but do need a foundation of pit type concrete. In ground truck scales are great for businesses with limited room since there is no “approach” needed. “Approach” is the driving space length required for the trucks to drive to the truck scale in place to be weighed.
