Flush mount benefit

The group axle weigher is installed level to the surrounding area which ensures that all wheels on the axle group are level at all times for added accuracy.

Truck weighing procedure using
a group axle weigher

The truck image illustrates the weighing process.
Once the weight is stable, record this weight and proceed to weighing the next axle. When all the axles are weighed, the weights are added together giving you the gross weight of the vehicle. You can also choose to weigh in motion and have our Axle Weighing software do the rest. (Limited to 7 axles in motion)
