DALLAS — Right Weigh Inc. has announced the launch of its first digital onboard load scale, the new E-Z Weigh scale.
The announcement was made in conjunction with the Great American Trucking Show under way here.
The new E-Z Weigh scale monitors the weight of any single, tandem or tri-axle group of an air suspension straight truck, tractor, or trailer, according to Scott McCulloch, director of communications.

Measuring and reading on-the-ground weight in pounds and kilograms, these weather-tight digital gauges are intended to withstand extreme temperatures and inclement weather conditions, allowing for exterior installation, he said.
The E-Z Weigh's design incorporates a simple two-point calibration process, ensuring accurate weight readings within at least 300 pounds or better.
A large LCD display allows for easy viewing from 30 feet or more, even in bright sunlight.
“This is the scale that will finally make digital onboard weighing accessible to the whole industry, including those without deep pockets,” McCulloch said. “The E-Z Weigh load scale was carefully designed to keep manufacturing costs as low as possible, while still maintaining the high quality and reliability standards that we've built our reputation on. By taking advantage of the latest advances in technology and components, we were ultimately able to develop a simple and accurate digital unit, while still keeping its cost low.”
“Our development of this scale is in response to our customer's requests for a digital scale that is user-friendly and reliable, but still affordable,” said Andy Mount, vice president of Right Weigh, and chief engineer on this project. “It is our goal to offer the right scale for every customer, so this is a very strong addition to our existing line of mechanical scales. I'm confident that our E-Z Weigh digital scale will provide a better alternative to any other digital system available on the market today.”
