One of the questions we are asked quite often is “can I print labels with my basic price computing scale”? The answer used to be no. Then, the answer was no, or well, yes…. but it will be very expensive and difficult. Then, we started getting a few different entry level retail scales that would allow the printing feature. Fast forward to today and we have a new battery powered produce scale that offers this printing feature that will allow you to print basic price per pound labels.

We understand that you have alternatives when it comes to purchasing legal for trade scales can can compute price per pound. One of the under appreciated factors to consider in this competitive market is the actual scale manufacturer. Cardinal Detecto Scale Manufacturing has a reputation throughout the scale industry for their high quality weighing equipment.
Over the years we’ve seen how important it is to offer products from reputable scale manufacturers who actually support the products. The D Series scales have an easy to read weight display and easy to use Price Look Up (PLU) buttons right on the front of the scale. The scale has several different capacity choices as well.
The scale offers a dual power source of rechargeable battery pack and 110/120VAC 50/60 Hz adapter (included) for reliable use at the farmer’s market. Auto Shut-off, Sleep, and Backlight Off modes extend the retail scale’s battery life which is especially helpful when you’re on the go and don’t have access to an 110 VAC receptacle.
The NTEP legal-for-trade scale’s Pre-Pack key saves time by retaining the Unit Price and Tare for repetitive price computing, making the operator’s job even faster. The scale features adjustable, nonskid feet and bubble level which is great when you’re using this out at the market and you’re trying to set it up on a wooden table that isn’t level.
