Accuweigh’s Payload Monitoring System increases haulage profitability for a truck & dog combination operating out of the Goondiwindi area in Northern New South Wales. Due to the unavailability of a weighbridge within 100km of the loading point,this client previously under-loaded his vehicle to avoid being fines for overloading.

Unfortunately, under-loading his vehicle was costing this owner operator cartage fees that would have paid his fuel bill for each two way trip.  Accuweigh’s Brisbane branch supplied thePayload Monitoring System which the mechanically competent driver fittedhimself following the simple installation instructions.

The self-installed Payload Monitoring System was configured, tested and calibrated by one of Accuweigh’s experienced service technicians when next in the driver’s area to minimise travel costs. This owner operator has since reported very good weighing accuracy is being achieved which ensures full load carrying capacitycan be maintained on all hauls without risk of accidental overloading.

Accuweigh’s TruckWeigh Payload Monitoring System is manufactured by Vishay Precision Group in the UKand is specifically designed as a low cost option for vehicles fitted with spring,air or rubber block suspensions. Due to its clever design, TruckWeigh can also be used on any combination for these suspension types; spring front, air drive, rubber block on trailer, etc.

TruckWeigh has no moving parts and is not susceptible to wear or slipping out of calibration due to stretched or sagging springs which is common in other overload monitoring systems. This Overloading Solutionis simple to install and is usually completed withinone working day for both new and existing vehicles.
