How It Works

We need three things to accurately weigh your truck: the loaded weight of the steer axle, the loaded weight of the truck's tandem axles, and the loaded weight of the trailer axle.

Step 1

Record The Loaded Weight Of The Steer Axle

The loaded weight of each truck's steer axle changes very little from one load to the next. We only weigh it once, number our trucks, and store the steer axle weight in our monitor next to the truck's number.

In Practice
When the loader operator sees a truck coming in he selects that truck's number and hits "ENTER" - (this stores the steer axle weight)

Step 2

Move The Drive Axles Onto The Scale and Load The Truck To Its Target Weight

This is where you begin to maximize your payload and confidently place logs on the trailer until you hit your target weight.

In Practice
When the truck is loaded to a Target Weight - The loader operator hits "ENTER" - (This stores the drive axle weight) 

Step 3

Pull The Trailer Onto The Scale, Press Enter, See Your Total Load

This is the third and final step required to maximize your payload and control your truck weights.

In Practice - Pull Forward

When the trailer axle comes onto the scale, the loader operator hits "ENTER" - (This stores the trailer axle weight)

The Maxi-Load scale monitor automatically displays the total weight of the truck.
