Truck Scale Built for Mining Applications

Built specifically for mining and off-road vehicle weighing, Cardinal’s new Yukon low-profile truck scale is built for extremely heavy-duty use, with gross capacity of up to 150 tons. The Yukon features a high 70- ton Concentrated Load Capacity, or CLC (a term defining a scale’s ability to weigh loads concentrated in a relatively small area to replicate loads applied by a truck’s axles). Each individual Yukon scale deck features eight massive 16-in. I-beams for superior strength; 3/8-in.-thick deck plate, with an optional 8-in. concrete deck available; and stainless steel 100,000-lb compression load cells. The unit is available in impervious hydraulic or electronic scale versions and offers extra-wide scale platforms to easily accommodate off-road vehicles. Its baked-on, anti-corrosion powder paint provides a long-lasting finish for environmental protection.
