Advantages Disadvantages
Above
Ground
Weighbridge
  • Less expensive to install because it requires less civil work and foundations
  • Suitable if weighbridge needs to be moved to another location
  • Fewer problems with water drainage
  • 150mm standard clearance underneath the weighbridge allows for generous room for cleaning
  • Suitable for trade, by NMI Australia
  • Needs to have ramps at both ends of Weighbridge. Each ramp 5 – 7 metres + turing circle (The gradient of the concrete ramps needs be minimum 10:1 ratio for every 100mm above the ground, needs 1M of Length)
  • Requires large real estate and impedes clear access to hard stand area
  • Inexperienced drivers may find the ramps more difficult to manoeuvre
  • May require walkways and handrails if drivers are required to get out of their trucks
  • Identical to pit Weighbridge, but requires additional side supports
