Central City Scale’s knowledgeable and experienced staff can fit virtually any make or model of Grinder-Mixer, regardless of age, with an accurate scale system. This helps the producer to keep track of product used and input costs in the feeding program.
Building your own scale allows you the flexibility to design it to fit your situation best.
You can turn an existing pen into a livestock scale simply by bolting four WeighBars under it and connecting them to an indicator. Your livestock scale can be large enough for a group of animals or it can be built for a single animal. You can put in an alleyway or a loading area. Selectable motion filtering is available in Avery Weigh-Tronix indicators so you don’t have to worry about livestock moving around on the scale.
A platform scale is one of the easiest scales to build. You can build a low capacity platform scale for weighing carts of feed or a higher capacity scale for weighing wagons or single axles.
Central City Scale offers Avery Weigh-Tronix bin/hopper scales that let you weigh dry and liquid materials right in the containers. No more hauling loads from storage to a scale!
The system is easy to install. Just set the WeighBars under the legs, level, then bolt down and plug in the connecting cables to one of several Avery Weigh-Tronix weight indicators. You can also interface your batching systems to computers for a total data management system.
Update your old conventional scale with new electronics. Order our plans for standard sizes. Indicators, power supplies, sensors and mounting brackets to fit your specs are also available.
An on-farm or in-plant truck scale will save you money in several ways. You can verify incoming delivery weights, pre-check load weights going out to the elevator, or check grain yields to compare the performance of different seeds, fields or fertilizers. Plus, you’ll no longer have to worry about picking up a traffic ticket for an overloaded truck.
A truck scale WeighBar kit consists of four or eight WeighBars with cables and brackets. (Indicators sold separately). Additional construction materials can be purchased locally. A full checklist of materials needed to build your own economical farm or plant weighing system is available at your request.
The Weigh-Tronix four-point system permits the weighing of boxes, tanks, or other bodies mounted on four-wheel running gear. The WeighBars are placed between the box or other type of load container and the running gear-frame. The cables attach to an indicator situated at a spot most convenient to the operator. Remote display available with all indicators.
Three-point scales are your ticket to making a portable scale. You can install your own scale using an existing portable grinder mixer, grain, or hog cart.
A standard two-wheel axle scale kit consists of one hitch WeighBar and two axle WeighBars. The indicator comes as a separate unit and has a mounting bracket that attaches to any surface. Systems are available in capacities from 10,000 to 100,000 lbs.
Weatherized for all types of climates, Avery Weigh-Tronix CC-30-3 compression load cells are used on truck mounted feed boxes and feed wagons. Place the load cells between the box and the running gear frame and you are ready to weigh feed. Cables running from the load cells attach to an indicator situated inside or outside the cab.
A compact readout on the new Multi-Purpose Scale from Central City Scale can be bolted to the dash of a pickup cab. The multipurpose, 5,000-lb. scale system runs on 12v DC or 110v AC power. The load cells act as bolt-on feet to fit under the four corners of the unit, deck or platform. The scale system could be used in cattle-working chutes or at livestock platforms.
