Learn about the individual components of a complete weigh scale system.

A complete cattle scale weigh system consists of an indicator which displays the weight, load bars (which mount under a squeeze chute or portable platform), and a platform (if portable setup is needed).

Scale Indicators

The "brains" of the scale system. The indicator displays the weight and other functionality (depending on model).

Load Bars and Cells

The "heavy lifting" of the system. The load bars capture and then transmit the weight to the indicator.

Weighing Platforms

Needed for scales in an alleyway. The load bars are mounted under the platform through pre-drilled holes.

Rugged equipment designed for rugged environments.

Designed specifically for animals that don't stand still while being weighed. A sack of feed may not move, but a 2470 lb bull sure will.

Waterproof and Weatherproof to ensure you can weigh your cattle under any conditions.

No electricity is needed for weighing. Your load bars connect to the indicator with a 16 foot cable for power and the indicator includes a long-life, rechargeable, internal battery that lasts 14 - 20 hours (depending on model).

Works with CattleMax software so you can seamlessly import weights and EID numbers into your cattle records.

This 2470 lb bull shows how the Tru-Test scales can stand up to years of use!
