POY Finalist: Lift truck integrated scale

Finalist in Material Handling Systems in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
By Edited by Gust Gianos, Plant Engineering November 1, 2011

An integrated scale is available on 4,000-5,000-lb. internal combustion, cushion tire lift truck models. The integrated scale enables operators to quickly view, record, or transfer legal-for-trade load weight information as the load is being transported through the facility.

With the ability to weigh loads en route, this versatile cost-effective scale eliminates the repetitive, time-consuming process of transporting loads to and from floor scales. A built-in side shifter increases operator efficiency and allows for 4-in. movement each way without the operator having to leave his or her seat.
