PHP-Nuke Air-Weigh’s 5800-series on-board scale is now a factory option on all Western Star trucks with rear air suspensions. The scales are spec'd through the custom application engineering offered by Western Star.

On-board scales can clearly improve productivity and reduce operating costs, and Air-Weigh is the only manufacturer offering an in-dash scale for tractors. When an Air-Weigh equipped tractor picks up a trailer with an Air-Weigh scale, the trailer weight data is automatically sent to the truck's in-dash display, where the driver is able to see steer-axle, drive-axle, and up to seven trailer-axle weights along with net payload and GVW. The system communicates over existing wiring between the tractor and trailer and operates off vehicle power. Once calibrated, Air-Weigh says its customers claim weight accuracy to be well within 300 lb of a DOT scale.

Interested customers should contact their local Western Star dealer for pricing and ordering information.
