Onboard truck scales fitted to a wide variety of agricultural equipment and vehicles including grain carts, forklifts, haul trucks, conveyor belts and chaser bins can take the time, guesswork and effort out of the harvest weighing process.
Essentially, the equipment minimises the chance for human error and provides agricultural producers with more accurate harvest data. The scales accurately measure the weight of the crop or produce in real time as the truck is being loaded and when integrated with intelligent software, the information can be stored and later analysed and used by the farmer to identify problems and opportunities, calculate yields per acre, record production history etc.
These truck scales are designed to withstand the rugged and harsh outdoor farming environments and will produce highly accurate and precise measurements, quickly and easily.
But the equipment doesn’t sit idle once harvest season is over. It can provide farmers with ongoing ‘intelligence’ about their operations, such as monitoring yield data and hybrid performance, providing proof of yields for crop insurance, verifying the yield of the header and so on. Importantly, onboard truck scales prevent under loading and over loading of trucks, thereby avoiding penalties and optimising the farmer’s transport costs.
