Motor Truck Scales

Motor truck scales are a large set of scales usually mounted permanently on a concrete foundation that are used to weight entire road vehicles and their contents. By weighing the vehicle both empty and when loaded, the load carried by the vehicle can be calculated.

Motor truck scales can be surface mounted with a ramp leading up a short distance and the weighing equipment underneath, or they can be mounted with the weighing equipment and platform in a pit so that the weighing surface is level with the road. They are typically built from steel or concrete and by nature are extremely durable. Motor truck scales are heavily used in the transportation and construction industry. Worcester Scales offers a line of major motor truck scale brands including BridgeMont, Weigh-Tronix and Rice Lake.
