    Onboard payload weighing for Deere articulated dump trucks (ADTs) provides overload protection, with mirror-mounted load indicators that inform the operator when the truck is nearing capacity. Payload scales also let the operator track total tonnage and cycles. The system will even calculate the carryback after the load is dumped for accurate production values.


    Payload weighing systems for wheel loaders help increase profitability and efficiency for quarry and aggregate operations. Onboard weighing creates more efficient loading and allows material movements to be tracked. Onboard weighing systems give the loader operator information on every bucket lifted, allowing accurate measurement of every load and preventing over-or under-loading. The systems also provide the ability to track multiple trucks and products to create a clear picture of product and customer movements.
