VTS231 Truck Scale

“Contact us” for pricing!

The VTS231 truck scale sets the industry standard for steel deck truck scales and is the ideal choice for a wide variety of vehicle weighing applications. The steel deck is supported by orthotropic ribs that are completely sealed from the elements by automated, continuous welds. By pressure testing every rib, we ensure an airtight seal that eliminates the potential for rusting from the inside, unlike scale designs that sandwich beams between top and bottom plates using intermittent welds. The ribs are shaped to distribute concentrated loads better than I-beam designs, leading to a longer life for your scale. By combining the strength of an orthotropic weighbridge with the reliability of POWERCELL® PDX® load cells, this truck scale ensures that you will get years of trouble-free weighing even in the harshest environments and toughest applications.
