Vulcan, a leading manufacturer of on-board scale systems for the refuse industry, has announced a new on-board roll-off scale.
The system has been thoroughly tested in many locations and typically provides accuracy within 1% of gross vehicle weights. It is recommended for both on-road and off-road applications.
The V500 meter in the cab displays gross vehicle and net payload weights and alerts the driver to unsafe or overloaded situations. An optional meter can record net daily payloads, print individual load receipts, establish weight limits to activate alarms, plus much more.
The Vulcan roll-off scale uses two pin-style load cells for the rear hinge and a hydraulic sensor connected to the front lift cylinders. The rear hinge assembly features composite bushings. This unique feature of the Vulcan roll-off scale assures maximum durability, accuracy and long load cell life. The rear hinge assembly is welded in place, just like a normal hinge.
