HOW DO I USE MY SCALE?In order to get an accurate weight with your on-board truck and trailer scales, park your vehicle on level ground with the engine running and the brakes released. For air ride, briefly deflate the air suspension and inflate to ride height. Steer and drive weights are displayed on the easy-to-read digital display.

HOW DOES MY SCALE WORK?LoadMaxx works on trucks, tractors and trailers with air suspensions and most mechanical suspensions. Air sensors measure pressure in the air bags, and deflection sensors measure flex for axles with leaf spring suspensions. The scale converts the sensor measurements into accurate on-the-ground weights.

HOW DO I USE MY SCALE?BinMaxx’s on-screen menu makes it easy to set up and operate your scale. Drivers can learn to use BinMaxx scales in just a few minutes. To weigh a container, the driver lifts the container, empties it, and returns it to the ground. The display shows the current lift # and net weight of the container. After each lift, the driver can simply drive to the next bin and complete the lift without pushing buttons on the scale. To document the lift with a weight receipt, the driver needs only to push a single button on the display.

HOW DOES MY SCALE WORK?The BinMaxx scale system was designed for front-end loader refuse vehicles. Brackets and deflection sensors are mounted on the vehicle’s arms, out of harm’s way, and proximity switches are installed underneath the truck. These are used to establish a measurement window to dynamically weigh-in-motion full containers.

BEST PRACTICES

INSTALLATION - LOADMAXX TRUCK/TRACTORStart by collecting all tools needed and reviewing the install manual to have an overall view of what steps you will perform.For the most consistent and accurate weight readings check that the suspension system and the condition of its components are in good working condition. Air-Weigh scales with air pressure sensors are precisely measuring air pressure at a fraction of one psi; additionally, they compensate for temperature, altitude, humidity and barometric pressure.Repair any leaks and replace any faulty HCVs before installing and calibrating the scaleSlow filling height control valves require that the driver waits longer for weight readings; Air-Weigh recommends the following height control valves if the fill time is problematic: Hadley 500C, Hadley NGH Ridewell Extreme Air, Haldex CR.

ACCURACYTo get the most accurate weight with your on-board truck and/or trailer scale it’s important that the scale is installed to factory install instructions and calibrated correctly. To achieve the best accuracy results, park your vehicle on level ground with the engine running and the brakes released. For air ride, briefly deflate the air suspension and inflate to ride height. Note accuracy can be affected by poorly working or worn suspension components such as the leveling valve, bushings, or air line leaks. Accuracy can be obtained to within 300 lb per suspension group for air ride and to within 900 lb per suspension group for mechanical suspension when calibrated and compared with a certified in-ground scale.

USING CALCULATED STEER - LOADMAXX / QUICKLOAD TRACTORAir-Weigh’s scale technology accurately calculates the steer axle weight based on the percentage of weight transferred from the 5th wheel to the steer axle. It’s recommended:Ensure that the 5th wheel position used for calibration (sweet spot) allows for a maximum steer axle weight when the drive weight is a legal maximum (including the weight of the on-board fuel, driver, and any personal belongings) which will ensure maximum payload capacity.If you change the 5th wheel position after it has been calibrated, the calculated steer will display inaccurate weights. The chosen calibration notch in the 5th wheel should be marked with paint to easily move it back to the “calibrated location” if it is moved.Drive and trailer weights will read accurately regardless of the 5th wheel position.If you move your 5th wheel frequently, you can upgrade to a measured steer option that displays steer weights correctly regardless of the position.

CALIBRATION TIPS - TRUCK/TRACTOR OR TRAILERSThe following calibration tips will ensure you achieve the best possible accuracy with your Air-Weigh scale:Be sure to use the same certified scale to obtain both your empty and your heavy weight data. The accuracy of the Air-Weigh scale depends on the accuracy of the certified scale.In-ground scales that provide segmented scales will improve accuracy for calibrating each axle weight separately.When obtaining weight data; park on level ground, leave the engine running, have a full tank of gas and release brakes. Engaging the brakes during calibration will lead to inaccurate readings.Collect and enter empty weights when the truck is EMPTYCollect and enter heavy weights when the truck is as close to the maximum GVW as possibleBrakes must be released when entering calibration weight data, and any time weight readings are takenTrailers equipped with Lift Axles that tie into the main suspension HCV when down, and are only in the up position when empty (to reduce tire wear), are calibrated with the axle in the down position. In this instance, weight readings will also be taken with the lift axle in the down position.Deflection sensors and brackets have a break-in period before you can calibrate. Review your install manual for proper brake-in period lengths. **Break-in periods are dependent on a number of factors, including but not limited to: work environment the scale is subject to; road conditions; vehicle conditions; normal wear and tear. This can cause the break-in period to vary from 100 miles to 800 miles.

GETTING ACCURATE WEIGHTSWe understand every situation in the field or loading yard can be unique. It’s recommended to follow the below tips as best you can for accurate weight readings.Park on level ground with the engine running and release brakes.For air-ride suspensions, briefly deflate the air suspension and inflate to ride height before reading weightsIf you have a lift axle and calibrated with the lift axle up, weights need to be read while the lift axle is up for accurate weight readings.

PIN PROTECTIONUsing a personal identification number to protect your calibration data is highly recommended. The PIN number must be entered directly into the both the tractor and trailer scales.
