How do forklift scales work?

Forklift scales are hung on to the front of a forklift truck. The pallet weight is recorded the instant the pallet is picked up by the forklift truck. Weight data is merged with the pallet ID and transferred wirelessly to invoicing and warehouse management systems. Forklift scales offer a cost-effective, efficient solution to weighing pallets in freight handling processes.

Our forklift scales can accurately weigh pallets up to 10,000 lbs or 5,000 kg.
