Do you need legal-for-trade truck scales to weigh not only entire trucks, but also a truck’s individual axles or a group of axles? Multi-axle truck weight scales allow separate weighbridges to operate as independent scales but also as one.
These commercial truck scales are necessary because trailer axles can change their position relative to the length of the trailer to help balance the weight it carries. Having a multi-axle scale means drivers will be able to tell exactly how to adjust the position of the axles.
Multi-axle scales do require more load cells than a typical truck scale, thus making them a higher cost solution; but, the versatility and the flexibility they offer make them an excellent investment. Because states can have very different laws regarding the distribution of weight on trailers, this equipment is essential to help drivers adjust for compliance.
For a cost-effective truck scale in a non-commercial application – one that does not require NTEP certification – some organizations choose single axle scales. Largely used to ensure compliance with road weight limits, single-axle truck scales separately weigh each set of axles, providing a truck’s estimated total weight. While suitable for some applications, single axle weighing is not legal-for-trade.
We install steel or concrete deck scales above ground or pit mounted, and provide turnkey service for total vehicle weighing solutions with scaleside hardware, custom software, and robust data management systems.

What is a truck scale?
This equipment is used to weigh trucks as well as other large-scale machinery. They can be permanent installations in a facility or portable units to be used in the field.
Why are load cells important in a truck weight scale?
These elements of commercial truck scales enable them to provide the most accurate readings due to their highly sensitive design. This ensures that operators can trust the measurements to be as reliable as possible and make better decisions.
What should I consider before buying a truck weight scale?
In addition to the size of the vehicles or equipment to be weighed, it’s important to decide whether you want a steel deck or a concrete deck. Concrete decks can support more weight and last longer, while steel is easier to move to a different location.
