Why buying cheap is too expensive

When it comes to the ongoing cost of owning a truck scale, the load cell system has the greatest impact on total expenditure. A system that is inexpensive up front, often leads to an influx of costs later on. Replacement parts, service fees, downtime and inaccuracy all contribute to the financial risk of a cheap load cell system. For this reason, it is critical to choose a reliable load cell system.


POWERCELL® load cells are the most advanced vehicle scale load cells available. This calculator shows you how this technology can save your business money every day.
