Leaf Chain Scale


Our Leaf Chain model is ideal for weighing on the move. The lift truck scale installs quickly and easily, eliminating costly trips to a floor scale. The strain gauge load cell sensors are placed in the lift truck’s leaf chains, which send out signals that vary with the tension on the chains. Based on the signal, the indicator weight computer calculates and presents the weight on the forks.

How it works:

Strain-gauge loadcell sensors are placed in the lift truck’s leaf chains. Each of the two sensors send out a signal that varies with the tension on its chain. Based on the signal, the indicator’s weight computer calculates and displays the weight on the forks.
