Tuffer weigh-in-motion scale operates on any brand, size of bucket
loader. The system incorporates external sensors. The sensors
measure change in the hydraulic lift pressure, which is directly
proportional to the load lifted and converts it to a digital
readout. The Tuffer scale meter, mounted in the cab, interprets
these sensors signals and displays the individual lift weights
and cumulative totals by material, customer number, or other
preferences. The Tuffer weigh-in-motion is also equipped with
a two-second last bucket tip-off function, which makes it much
faster and easier to get the correct loaded weight the first
Out & Haul more Tons/Day: The Tuffer Weigh-In-Motion
Bucket Loader Scale will provide the information to load
maximum weights faster and keep trucks moving without going
to a central scale location and back to the pit. This means
you get increased productivity on every load, every day.
Onboard scales make it easier and faster to load accurate
weights every time and Tuffer is designed to do the job and
survive the rugged environments found in Quarry and other
loading operations. The Tuffer can be installed on most existing
Bucket Loaders which gives you the opportunity to increase
your capability and efficiency while eliminating material
loss due to overloading without knowing it. Accurate loading
also eliminates stopping at a public scale or getting overload
fines the reduce profits. With the optional printer installed
you can get all the weight data printed at the pit and eliminate
the extra step of weighing at a central scale. This saves
time and money.
it saves you money: Loading light to avoid
over weight fines can cost a company thousands of dollars
a year in lost profits. When your trucks are paid for how
much weight they deliver you want your trucks to carry their
maximum load each time you send a truck on a job. Not only
is it important that your trucks carry their maximum load
but your bucket loader must be able to load the trucks quickly
and accurately to be cost effective to use. When the truck
driver has to stop at the scale get a weight to see if they
are light or heavy. It can be very costly retuning to the
pit to load or unload product. This takes valuable time and
increases the cost of the product. It just makes sense to
load the truck right the first time.
you should know about the Hydraulics, of any loader. Because
the Hydraulic Pressure of the bucket is tied in to the steering.
The Hydraulic Pressure changes as you turn. So to over come
this issue after you pick up a load and are ready to load
the truck, make sure the wheels are in the forward (straight)
position. Than lift the bucket, after the weight is recorded
you can dump the load. With the Tuffer technology will over
come any slight pressure off set. Note: Do
not install any bucket loader system on any loaders that
are poorly maintained. Under powered loader can cause hydraulics
to surge. This is caused by over sized buckets installed
on your loader. Hydraulic
leak can degrade the performance of any system.

The Reweigh Feature of the Tuffer Weigh-in-Motion Loader Scale (Instructional Video)
you need to install scale:
customer to have a welder and welding machine
to weld brackets to the machine. The
main welding for this system is the PROX switches
that are use to start and end the weight window.
customer to have a mechanic on site to tap into
you need to calibrate scale:
• Customer is responsible for known weight! Calibration
of this system requires a known weight. A weighbridge and truck will be needed
to verify the known weight of the material used for calibration.
weighing system is hydraulic based. The hydraulic system
on the machine MUST be free of any leaks or defects. Mechanically,
the machine must be sound. Free of play in boom upper structure.
Any discrepancies in the areas will result in improper operation
of the weighing system.
The MCP7810V TUFFER Printer is an ultra-compact, lightweight portable printer with an "easyload" paper feature. Housed in a new innovative enclosure this printer has an RS232 serial interface via a 6-way RJ12 socket. Designed for maximum versatility, the MCP7810V is compatible with existing systems whilst allowing many upgrades in terms of printing speed and functionality. It requires an unregulated power supply ranging from 10-35V dc and has maintenance free operation, only available with thermal printers. The Printer is designed for use in a vehicular environment. All units are built with robust ABS housings. In additional, a tough rubber boot with magnetic mounting allows for quick location and placement of the printer without any other accessory equipment.
