Ever had a truck scale break down in the middle of the day when trucks are lined up to weigh in? That problem probably stresses you out as much as it stresses us out. Truck scales are supposed to be items that are designed to make money and it seems like they cost more and more over time. But there is one way to keep your truck scale making money, and that is through regular maintenance.
There is absolutely nothing sexy about regular maintenance, but it is the simplest thing you can do right now to keep your truck scale profitable. Truck scales have some moving parts, from analog or digital load cells to weigh bridges and bumpers. If just a single one of those components fails, the entire system could be in jeopardy. That can cause you to put out the “scale broken” sign.
