Air-Weigh has designed scales for refuse vehicles built with air or walking beam drive suspensions. The digital onboard scales, available in Air-Weigh’s LoadMaxx and QuickLoad product lines, feature an in-dash display that shows GVW, net payload, steer axle and drive axle weights.

The scales can be installed on any refuse truck with an air drive suspension, Hendrickson Haulmaax or Hendrickson HN462 drive suspension, according to Air-Weigh; the new scales incorporate the company’s deflection sensor technology designed to allow the accurate weight measurement on steer and drive axles with mechanical suspensions.

Air-Weigh says its scales offer programmable alarms to indicate warning and overweight conditions, multiple digital data interfaces capable of transmitting weight information to onboard computers, and PIN-protected dual-point calibration; they also are easy to install, calibrate and maintain.
