Vehicle Recovery

Vehicle rescue recovery can be a hazardous activity. The large loads from truck rollovers should be safely monitored to avoid tipping of the rotator truck/ tow truck, overloading vehicle lifting points resulting in structural damage to vehicle, and overloading of winch ropes. During winter, additional loads can occur due to snow resistance and ice binding requiring extra caution. Massload provides rugged wireless load monitoring to facilitate safe accident-free lifting.

Boat Lifting & Building

Massload provides solutions for boat lifting applications needed for dry docking, boat maintenance as well as boat centre of gravity determination. In addition, Massload's technical applications team offers custom solutions for boat weighing during construction phase to ensure boat centre of gravity is achieved as per design blueprints.

Cable Ferry Line Tension Monitor

Massload designs solutions for cable ferry weigh applications including cable tension monitoring to prevent overload damage to wire ropes as the ferry traverses its waterway.


Massload offers rugged and reliable solutions to construction weigh applications such as lifting and vehicle check weighing.
