The challenge facing fleet operators today is to maximise payload and drivetime without sacrificing safety or incurring costly overweight fines. Several competing factors play into the demand of maintaining safety and operational efficiencies: optimising load balance, utilising payload capacity, dealing with the costs, time losses and hassles that come with weighbridge stops.
The answer, of course, is Right Weigh’s onboard load scales – simple technology that gives fleet owners the tool necessary to feel confident about axle group weights and skip weighbridge stops in favour of more time on route without the risk of overweight tickets, safety issues, or additional delay. They change everything about the vehicle weight management process – removing unnecessary side-trips to check a load, eliminating the risk of expensive tickets and delays for non-compliance, and saving thousands per truck.
Leigh Noske, owner of Smart Truck Solutions, says that Right Weigh’s exterior digital load scales are compatible with various truck and trailer air suspension and axle configurations, which is crucial for observing Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM).
“The 201 Series is one of the most versatile exterior on-board digital scale systems from Right Weigh,” he says. “It is available with a dual air input that can be used to monitor a single axle group with two height control valves or it can be used to monitor two separate axle groups on the same vehicle.”
Leigh explains that the additional features of Right Weigh’s 201 Series exterior digital load scales, including PIN code protection and an overweight warning feature, is user-friendly and ideal for maintaining legal weights efficiently and safely.
Used in conjunction with the free Mobile App, Right Weigh’s load scales provide real-time data on payload weight for drivers and fleet operators without leaving the cab.
“Users can view on-ground weight of their truck and trailer either from the heads-up-display on the unit or anywhere within Bluetooth range,” he says. “They can also share that information with fleet operators via email – promoting a safer and more productive way to monitor and maintain legal payload limits.”
