Vulcan Dump & Trailer Truck Scales

 

System Accuracy: Typically
+/- 1% of full scale load or better.
TurnTable front pup axle

Accurate and reliable payload measurement is an important element of profitability and operating safety in bulk hauling. Whether for municipal, county, state or private operations, Vulcan on-board scale systems allow optimum, safe use of a truck’s payload capacity-both for maximizing loads and preventing the liabilities of overloading.

Mix and match: Tractors & Trailers. Because calibration is store in the VSL Vulcoder for the tractor and the trailer. You can have and use any trailer with and tractor and the calibration will be correct.

Vulcan Scales = Innovation
Were proud to announce the latest innovation by Vulcan scales "Cast Load Cell". Designed for the Holland ILS fifth wheel slider.
One of the benefits design is that it reduces the install time for a standard fifth wheel slider kit by 6 to 8 hours. Easy to install, No welding required, just bolted it on.
An added benefit because of the bolt on design. It is easily moved to a different tractor if needed.
Vulcan scales also offers the new optional indicator upgrades with printer ports (RS-232) for the V320 and the V340 indicators.
Four ways to keep ahead of the competition
1.

Know the competition. Find out who your competitors are, what they are offering and what their unique selling point (USP) is. This will identify the areas you need to compete in, as well as giving you a platform for differentiating yourself.

2.

Know your customers. Customer expectations can change dramatically when economic conditions are unstable. Find out what matters to your customers now - is it lower price, more flexible service, and the latest products to improve efficiency.  Vulcan weighing system once again, is the product to increase efficiency for you and your customer. Revise your sales and marketing strategy accordingly.

3.

Differentiate. It's essential to give your customers good reasons to come to you rather than a rival. Your USP should tap into what customers want and it should be clear and obvious - no-one should have to ask what makes you different Vulcan weighing system with fast, accurate weights on site for the customer to see.

4.

Look to the future. Businesses that plan for growth are more successful than those that are happy to stay still. Keep up with developments in your sector, follow consumer trends, invest in new technology and - crucially - have a clear idea of where you want to be in one, three and five years' time. Vulcan weighing system will help you achieve efficiency and your customer will feel confident that he's only paying for what he needs.

We works hard to make things easy for you. We have developed our custom manuals and instruction for a faster and easier install and calibration.  Saving you time and money is just one of the benefits of making your purchase though us.

G-503 Dump Truck Shear Pin Scale System G-503-H-28 Shear Pin w/modular Hinge Kit
The Vulcan shear pin dump truck scale system operates reliably in harsh environments and is the most accurate method to measure dump truck payload weights. The standard system includes a full rear hinge assembly and bracket to replace the truck's existing hinge and bracket. For this configuration a durable Vulcan shear pin load cell under the hoist cylinder measures front end box weight, and Vulcan shear pin load cells measure weight at the rear hinge assembly. Vulcan electronics provide the operator payload weight information to optimize loading and operation.

Note End Dump Trailers: OUTBOARD LEGS, SINGLE POINT SUSPENSION

Trunnion load cells may be used on trailers providing that all of the vertical weight pushing down on the trunnion shaft is inside the spring pack.  There must be no weight pushing down on the trunnion shaft outside of the spring pack.  This means there is a single area of shear between the spring pack and the trailer support bracket, which allows the scale to function properly. 

On outside mount units, or trailers with outboard legs, the trailer brackets are spaced further apart and some of the trailer load is pushing down on the trunnion shaft outside of the spring pack.  This does not allow the scale to function properly, as weight is being applied both inside and outside of the spring pack.

Also, please specify the length of trunnion load cell required when placing your order.  The load cell should be the same length as the existing trunnion shaft.  This length will be either 48.5” or 54.5”.

If possible, we prefer to use trunnion load cells for end dump applications because they are better suited to take all the loads encountered when dumping the trailer.  They work well in on-road applications.  For single point suspension trailers used in off-road applications such as logging, we recommend using single point load cells.  However, single point load cells are not recommended for end dump applications.
Before ordering Trailer Scale System: We need the Trunnion load cells length will be either 48.5” or 54.5”.
No more Overweight Fines: The expense of operating overloaded is already prohibitive in many regions and is becoming a serious issue nationwide. Enforcement is increasing and penalties are becoming more costly.

Eliminate Legal Liabilities: The potential costs to a hauler from lawsuits resulting from an accident involving an overloaded truck can be severe.

Ensure Operating Safety: Overloaded trucks have significantly impaired braking distances and cornering abilities, and are more likely to experience premature failures of truck components.

Cut Maintenance Costs: Hauling legal payloads reduces maintenance expense on springs, brakes and tires, and increases the operating lifetime of the truck and body.

Increase Driver Efficiency: Our on-board scales give your drivers the assurance of hauling legal. With scales, drivers finish trips more efficiently and faster with full, legal loads.

Installation times are estimates on first time installations only. Actual installation times are dependent on the skill level of the mechanic and number of mechanics, shop equipment, on the need to possibly relocate other equipment on the truck or trailer.
