Case Construction Equipment now supplies for field installation two optional “weigh-on-the-lift” scale systems for its 521, 621, 721, 821 and 921 wheel loaders. The two systems available are the Load Log 800 and Load Log 8000 from Loup Electronics. According to Case, advantages of an on-board weighing system include consistent, proper loading of trucks, fewer visits to the weigh scale, greater safety resulting from “eliminating unnecessary vehicle movements,” and accurate recordkeeping — resulting from the ability of the systems to generate operational logs.
