3,000 lb scale measures 11-3/4” x 15-1/4” and is made of cast aluminum. The electronic display has been recessed into the top to keep it out of harms way. Your tire will be positioned parallel to the display to allow the readout to be seen on the outboard side of the tire, or wheel pants. The scale top is powder coated gray. The coating makes cleanup quite easy because most
everything will wipe right off. The units are not waterproof, however the electronic assembly is housed in a sealed stainless steel box. Scales should never be washed, but can be cleaned with a damp cloth.
The display reads out to the nearest 1 LB and features LCD backlit that comes on with motion and stays on for enough time to record your reading accurately. Scale never turns off unless you remove power. Power can be supplied by external battery pack, or A/C adapter which are both included. The batteries for the battery pack are (4) standard AA non rechargeable batteries. (not included) Batteries typically last to weigh 4-5 aircraft.
Simple operation. No Keys or switches. Scale zeros as power is supplied, then this unit works like a bathroom scale on steroids. The unit comes certified and will satisfy all the FAA’s current equipment requirements for Weight & Balance of certified or experimental aircraft.
Re-Certification can be obtained by removing the 12 fasteners, and shipping the assembly to the manufacturers shop. No need to ship the cast aluminum frame. Saves $$$ in shipping cost. Local calibration can also be preformed by licensed scale companies if you purchase a smart remote readout. These readouts provide the keyboard needed to change calibration.
Warranty and Certification is 12 months. Warranty covers any manufacturing defects. Simply pay freight & return to Arkansas location. No routine maintenance required.
