Get a real time weight reading of your skip bins

Weigh your load at any position during the lift

The Skip Bin Weigher is a rugged weighing system specifically designed for Skip Bin trucks and has an amazing 0.1% accuracy of your trucks capacity.
This system is ideal for truck drivers loading and unloading frequently and needing to check weight on the spot rather than risk overload fines or damage to the vehicle.
It is easily installed and works off the lifting boom, allowing the driver to take a weight reading from any position while loading a skip bin. This helps to avoid damage to equipment if you are trying to lift something overweight, and saves you unloading and wasting time if you are overweight.

Benefits of installing a Skip Bin Weigher:

  • Check your trucks load anywhere, anytime, instantly whilst in a stationary position
  • Save time + money – select suitable tip site by knowing your weight

How it works

The Skip Bin Weigher System consists of 2 load cells incorporated into the chain shackle to measure the weight of the suspended load. A transmitter sends the weight measurement information via WiFi to an indicator mounted on the side of the truck near the operators controllers.
