Benefits of Massload’s Farm Truck Scales

The Massload Farm Scale™ is built with rugged and reliable construction to provide all weather on-farm weighing of large super-B train trucks and Ag equipment.

Our Farm Scale is designed for easy installation and use directly on farm yard compacted gravel or on a concrete pad.

You can weigh everything from seeding-to-shipping and provide real-time data management with truck-in/truck out capability using Massload’s Advanced Weigh Scale Software.

We have a solution for every need, ranging from starter systems for infrequent use, to heavy duty continuous-use systems for super-Bs with real-time data management software. We also offer In-Ground Weigh-in-Motion systems for touch free operation.

With an equipment life of 20 years or more, cost per year becomes a small investment with huge value to operations over time.

Competitive lease-to-own options available to minimise impact on cashflow

How Farm Truck Scales Work

Prior to weighing, the remote display stop-go traffic light displays green indicating ready to proceed onto scale.

When the first truck axle is driven onto the axle scale, the remote display stop-go traffic light turns red, signaling driver to stop.

When the axle weight is captured, the axle number is displayed (e.g., A1) followed by the axle weight. The A1 axle weight is also printed out.

The traffic light then turns green indicating driver to proceed driving next axle group onto the scale.

When next axle group is on the scale, the signal light turns red for driver to stop. This process is repeated for all axle groups.

When last weigh is complete and the truck is driven off the scale, after a period of 15 seconds, the total weight is displayed flashing for several seconds. The printed weight ticket is also completed. The traffic light reverts to green and the system is ready for the next truck.

Each weight ticket can be removed after printing. Alternatively, they can be left as subsequent vehicles are weighed and the roll of weight tickets can then be removed.

Data Management Software Configuration for Farm Truck Scales

Wireless Option

This configuration does not use an external remote display. Instead, a mobile PC tablet is in the cab with the driver.

The app (Massload Advanced Weigh Scale Software MAWS) controls the operation in a similar manner to above. The app has a stop-go traffic light which directs the driver as with the remote display configuration.

All weigh data is captured and logged in the app together with truck ID and other information.

Wireless Data Management Software Configuration by Massload Technologies

Wired Option

In this configuration, the PC is in the scale house and is connected by wire to the scale via the Electronic Scale Processor. The app controls the operation as per above. A remote display can be connected to the PC and the app will control the display as in the hardware option. Alternatively, a scale operator can communicate to the driver via cell phone instructions based on the stop-go signal light on the app.

Axle scales are powered by digital load cell indicator


In addition to our 7ft, 12ft and 14ft models, it is possible to join extra 7ft sections to make longer scales of 21ft or more.


Axle pads scales can also be purchased with Massload durable 50,000 lb load cells (versus 25,000 lb). This doubles the axle scale rated capacity and is used in applications where there is significant shock loading in the weighing process or for industrial heavy-duty hauling applications.


Our custom molded cables are now available with rodent proof sleeving to ensure trouble-free operation throughout the year.
