There’s no question that truck scales are a significant investment for just about any company.
Although a lower-cost truck scale may seem like a more enticing option, the hardware price is only one element of the total cost of a scale.
If you are a potential buyer, then you should be aware of the ways truck scale design, construction techniques, steel content, quality and installation all contribute to the initial price of the scale.
