Air-Weigh scales a Western Star option
May 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Air-Weigh announced the availability of the Air-Weigh 5800-series tractor scale as a factory option for all Western Star Trucks with rear air suspensions. These scales are specified through the custom application engineering offered by Western Star. Interested customers can contact their local Western Star dealer for pricing and ordering information.
On-board scales improve fleet productivity and reduce operating costs and delays caused by check-weighing. Air-Weigh offers an in-dash scale for tractors. When an Air-Weigh equipped tractor picks up a trailer with an Air-Weigh scale, the trailer weight data is automatically sent to the truck's in-dash display, where the driver is able to see steer, drive, and up to seven trailer axle weights along with net payload and GVW. The system communicates over existing wiring between the tractor and trailer and operates from vehicle power.
