Axle pad scales, also referred to as axle pads or wheel load scales, measure a vehicles axle weights in order to determine a vehicle’s overall weight. Massload Technologies is a premier supplier of ultra-durable, low-profile axle pad scales for accurate vehicle weight across multiple industries. Our axle pads feature a large weighing surface and provide axle weight measurements accurate to within 0.25% FS. Truck axle scales can be used with ramps for above-ground installations or flush with concrete for a pit-installed permanent application. Our axle pads are typically sold in pairs but can also be sold in multiples to get complete trailer or truck weight in one weighment. This system is not to be used in legal for trade applications.
Above-ground installations are forklift portable and should be used with Massload quick disconnect cable (see options). View the benefits and applications of our axle pad scales by category below, Contact Us online or Request a Solution.
Axle pad scales allow drivers and companies to avoid fines associated with overweight vehicles. Axle pad scales prevent costly damage to the vehicle axles, drive shafts, tires and overall operations by ensuring that vehicles aren’t over capacity. An overweight vehicle can consume more fuel than a vehicle that is within proper weight limits. Overweight vehicles can also cause damage to roads and negatively impact a vehicle’s breaking capabilities and stopping distance. As a result, this could endanger other drivers and the driver operating the vehicle. Additionally, overweight vehicles can result in a voided insurance policy, so it is imperative to have an axle pad scale that provides accurate readings.
Massload axle pad scales are fully electronic and feature a large weigh surface to quickly and accurately weigh large vehicles. Some product specifications include:
