Air-Weigh announced the availability of scales designed for refuse vehicles built with air or walking beam drive suspensions.

The refuse vehicle scales are available in Air-Weigh's LoadMaxx and QuickLoad product lines and feature an in-dash display that shows GVW, net payload, steer axle and drive axle weights.

Air-Weigh scales for refuse vehicles can be installed on any refuse truck with an air drive suspension, Hendrickson Haulmaxx, or Hendrickson HN462 drive suspension. The new scales incorporate Air-Weigh's deflection sensor technology, allowing the accurate weight measurement on steer and drive axles with mechanical suspensions.


The refuse vehicle scales provide axle and GVW weight information in a cost-effective package. They also offer programmable alarms to indicate warning and overweight conditions, multiple digital data interfaces capable of transmitting weight information to on-board computers, PIN-protected dual point calibration, and are easy to install, calibrate, and maintain.

    This seems like pretty cool technology! Seems like a pretty small piece of equipment doing a pretty big job. Do any trucks come with a system like this pre-installed? I bet my dad wouldn't mind having something like this for his rig. Thanks for sharing!
