Each of our three 3,000 lb scales measure 12" x 15" and are made of cast aluminum. The electronic display has been moved into the suitcase to keep it out of harm's way. Each base comes with a machined carry handle on the bottom. The scale pads are powder coated grey. The coating makes cleanup quite easy because most everything will wipe right off. Although these units are water resistant, they should never be washed by hose or high pressure. Gentle hand cleaning should be all that is needed to keep your scales looking new.
The external display reads out to the nearest 1 LB and features an LCD backlight that comes on with motion and stays on for enough time to record your reading accurately. The scale never turns off unless you tell it to. Only the backlight is on a timer and comes back on anytime you cause a little motion. The suitcase unit is powered by A/C adapter.
The scale comes certified, and currently satisfies all FAA requirements for 12 months. Recertification is available at the manufacturer for an additional cost. An inspection is recommended every year, but most scales will hold their calibration for much longer. Instructions are available so that calibration can be performed by scale technicians in your area.
Warranty is 12 months covering any manufacturing defects.
