Onboard Weighing System for Excavators

Trimble has introduced the Loadrite X2350 payload management
system for excavators—a dynamic onboard weighing system to
optimize bucket loads, track loadout tonnage and monitor cycle
times. The system is claimed to improve excavator productivity by
quickly, easily and accurately weighing the material in the bucket
and displaying the payload information on an easy-to-read indicator in the cab. It is designed to allow operational efficiencies for
many excavator loading applications, including mass earthworks,
quarrying and mining. Project managers and machine operators
can use the X2350 to accurately measure and record tons per
hour, cycle times and total tonnage moved by excavators and
trucks. Knowing accurate load cycle counts allows for more effective management of excavators and material. In-field time-stamped
printed reports additionally monitor material inventories and production for easy reporting of loading activity throughout the day.
