Built To Resist Abuse

Before You Buy a 1,000-Pound Digital Platform Scale: A Checklist

  • Be sure the platform is low profile (lower than 2 inches). This makes loading and unloading for measurement easy.
  • Be certain the weight capacity is what you need it to be. The higher the weight capacity of a scale is, the higher the cost of the scale will be. Make sure you buy the proper scale for your specific weighing requirements.
  • Find out if ramps are necessary for your weighing applications. Ramps are necessary on either end of a scale so items can be wheeled on and off the scale platform. The ramps are put in place for safety and convenience.
