On Board Scales for Agriculture


Agriculture has benefitted from innovations in weight lifting and transporting solutions as much as industry has. Forklifts, trucklifts, bucket loaders and innovations in hay baling have revolutionized the amount of work that can be done in a given amount of time with a given amount of workers. These types of machines have done for farming what automation did for industry.

The way to level up your equipment and machinery is by being able to use the machinery not only to lift and move large objects and quantities, but to be able to quantify these by weight at the same time.

From produce to feed to materials, there is plenty to do on your farm with a forklift. When you start measuring out and moving feed or produce, in order to measure it you will have to add additional steps. Not measuring it will lead to loss and bad accounting. The perfect answer is a Hyster 650 compatible forklift scale.  A Hyster 650 compatible forklift scale will allow you to move and measure all in one step! A Hyster 650 compatible forklift scale will help to streamline your process.

The same is true for your hay baling process. Did you know that you can get a hay hog squeeze scale? Like a forklift scale, a hay hog squeeze scale will allow you to load and measure at the same time. A hay hog squeeze scale will simplify and speed up your process by reducing the number of steps needed and eliminating guesswork.

Accuracy Matters

Accuracy is a really big deal. Inaccurate measures can cost you money and do damage to crops and animals alike. To stay on top of measurements when dealing with large quantities or heavy objects you have to have special scales.
