Air-Weigh’s Self-Weighing Trailer Scale option is designed so that flatbed fleets can load to the maximum legal axle weight limit, right at the loading site, without the cost, delays and hassles normally associated with off-site commercial check-weighing, said Air Weigh, which is based in Eugene, OR.

Each scale installed on Transcraft trailers will be factory pre-calibrated to the specific suspension characteristics of each model. Mounted on the frame or side-rail, each Air-Weigh Trailer Scale has its own display panel for easy viewing by the operator, the company said.
