Bigger Scale for Better Weighing

Central City Scale rolls out new larger platform scales to match greater farmer needs.

Platform scales are helpful tools around the farm and since 1984 Central City Scale has been building portable platform scales for axle weighing. CCS Is now offering three new larger platforms a 10-foot-by-10-foot; 10-ft. by 12-ft.; and a 10-ft. by 14-ft. all in their standard platform line. Capacities range form 50,000 pounds to 70,000 lbs. and they can also be custom built to specifications.

The scales use the CCS 915 indicator with auto accumulate and auto print features. And there are other indicator choices with varying degrees of sophistication, price and features. These platforms can also be combined with a new or existing 10-ft. by 30-ft. platform module for even more accurate farm management.
