Accuweigh’s Adelaide branch supplied twenty-three sets of PM onboard truck scales to be fitted to side lift waste collection trucks being fabricated at Macdonald Johnston’s plant in Clayton, Victoria.
The trucks fitted with the onboard truck scales are being supplied to SITA for their recent waste collections contract with the North Adelaide Waste Management Authority (NAWMA) which they won.
The onboard truck scales will optimise SITA’s collections efficiency by allowing the drivers to see the net weight of collected refuse so each truck can be fully loaded to legal GVM limits before returning to the refuse site for emptying.
This onboard truck scales uses load cells fitted to the truck chassis and rigidly attached to the truck body. A digital weight indicator is mounted into the dash of the truck to allow the driver to read the truck weights which is complemented by overload warning alarms, both visual and audible.
PM Onboard is one of Europe’s largest manufacturers of onboard truck weighing systems and Accuweigh is the exclusive Australasian distributor of all PM onboard truck scales.
Accuweigh is Australia’s largest industrial weighing company and has branches in all mainland states offering complete after-sales service and support on onboard truck scales, vehicle weighing systems and payload monitoring systems.
