Choosing a Replacement Truck Scale to Match Your Foundation
When planning to replace a truck scale, consider using a low-profile truck scale to eliminate foundation modifications without sacrificing performance.
It’s common for foundations to outlast truck scale weighbridge, though it can be difficult to find a replacement truck scale with dimensions to match existing foundations. Legacy truck scale models were manufactured with lower profiles, meaning most standard truck scales currently produced don’t fit these existing foundations.
Solutions for Replacement Truck Scales
The solution is to find a manufacturer who can provide truck scales designed to fit existing foundations. Some manufacturers will create replacement truck scales as special or custom models. These truck scales come with a longer lead time and a higher price because extra time is needed to design and manufacture the scale.
Other manufacturers may offer standard models designed to fit the foundations of their older truck scale models. These manufacturers provide a standard steel deck or concrete deck weighbridge that can be installed only after extensive modifications are made to other existing foundations.
Not all manufacturers take the same approach to providing replacement truck scale solutions for existing foundations.
