When planning to replace a truck scale, consider using a low-profile truck scale to eliminate foundation modifications without sacrificing performance.
It’s common for foundations to outlast truck scale weighbridge, though it can be difficult to find a replacement above ground truck scale with dimensions to match existing foundations. Legacy truck scale models were manufactured with lower profiles, meaning most standard truck scales currently produced don’t fit these existing foundations.
The solution is to find a manufacturer who can provide truck scales designed to fit existing foundations. Some manufacturers will create replacement truck scales as special or custom models. These truck scales come with a longer lead time and a higher price because extra time is needed to design and manufacture the scale.
Other manufacturers may offer standard models designed to fit the foundations of their older truck scale models. These manufacturers provide a standard steel deck or concrete deck weighbridge that can be installed only after extensive modifications are made to other existing foundations.
Not all manufacturers take the same approach to providing replacement truck scale solutions for existing foundations.
The SURVIVOR® OTR-LP is Rice Lake’s answer to the need for low-profile, replacement truck scales to fit existing foundations. The OTR-LP was specifically designed to fit the most common foundation sizes and because they are offered as standard models, there are minimal lead times and lower costs since it’s not a custom scale. With a diamond plate steel deck and the same rugged construction SURVIVOR scales are known for, the OTR-LP is the ideal replacement solution.
Rice Lake SURVIVOR® OTR-LP low-profile truck scale is an outstanding choice for replacing existing competitor truck scales. The OTR-LP is designed to ease the truck scale replacement process. Each OTR-LP is designed and dimensioned to ensure it fits into existing competitor truck scale foundations.
The OTR-LP features standard module lengths of 15, 17.5, 20 and 23.33 feet to match the module lengths of competitive legacy scales. Custom sizes are also available to extend the life of existing scale foundations at a fraction of the cost of a completely new scale and foundation.
The truck scale is made to accommodate a minimum of 250 trucks per day for 25 years without fatigue. It utilizes 25 percent more steel content than competitor scales, and like all SURVIVOR OTR scales, features wide-flange I-beam construction. The OTR-LP is available in 10 or 11 feet widths, with profiles as low as 10 inches (with a three to eight inch cleanout), and a choice of deck plate options. SURVIVOR is the brand to trust when looking for truck scales that will last. The OTR-LP will withstand a generation or more, making it the last truck scale you will purchase.
