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 clearly 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 water proof. They should never be washed by hose or high pressure, but gentle hand cleaning should be all that is needed.
The display reads out to the nearest 1 LB and features a LCD back-lite that comes on with motion and stays on for enough time to record your reading accurately. Scale never turns off unless you tell it to. Only the back-lite is on a timer, and comes back on anytime you cause a little motion. A convenient handle has been machined into the bottom to make it easy to carry your new scale. Unit is powered by either the A/C adapter, or the rechargeable battery. (Both included)
The scale comes certified, and currently satisfies all FAA requirements for 12 months. Re-certification at manufacturer shop for an fee to be determined at time of request, per scale.
