Freightliner Trucks announced today the availability of the Air-Weigh in-dash on-board truck and trailer scale system as a factory option for all truck models with air suspensions.
This option can help eliminate overweight fines and scale fees associated with overweight loads, Freightliner said.
The Air-Weigh system consists of an in-cab truck scale and a remote trailer scale. The in-cab unit acts as the system master controller. It displays steer, drive and lift axle weights, up to seven trailer suspension weights if equipped, GVW and net payload weight.
"The Air-Weigh scale system takes the guesswork out of loading, which helps our customers maximize their time on the road while minimizing fines and fees," said Mark Lampert, Freightliner’s senior vp— sales and marketing.
