Onboard weighing systems were recently fitted to two trucks for Gasweld in New South Wales. Supplied by Accuweigh ’s Beresfield branch in Newcastle, the onboard weighing systems display the axle weight loadings at all times with audible and visible alarms activated when axle loading are approaching maximum legal weight limits.

Prior warning of a potentially overloaded vehicle is essential to alleviate prosecution under recently enacted Chain of Responsibility Legislation that is currently causing high concerns to transport and loading operations. No longer is the driver used as the scapegoat for an overloaded vehicle – anyone and everyone even remotely connected with the loading/receiving of goods from an overloaded vehicle can be held accountable, including company owners and directors.

Accuweigh’s onboard weighing system uses highly sensitive sensors positioned on suspension components and provides overload warning for the front axle, the rear axle and also for the combined RGVM. One of these onboard weighing systems was fitted to a new Isuzu truck prior to delivery while the second weighing system was retrofitted to an existing Gasweld truck.

Accuweigh has a diverse range of onboard vehicle weighing and overload warning systems to suit all types of vehicles to eliminate accidental vehicle overloading. Accuweigh also has a range of trade approved weighing systems designed for waste collection vehicles to enable clients to be legally invoiced for waste collected by weight.

Full backup and after sales support for onboard weighing system are available from eight branches across mainland Australia.
