Pit Mounted Weighbridge
Whether you choose a surface or pit-mounted weighbridge will depend on a number of factors specific to your application. The good news is that Parkerfarm has a range of weighbridges suitable for both options and we can help you select the best solution.
Pit-mounted weighbridges are a well-established design and allow vehicles to drive on and off the deck, without the restriction of ramps. The pit is normally enclosed on all sides and it is important that adequate drainage is built into the civil design. However, it is possible to construct the pit with three sides, to facilitate cleaning. An optional ‘T’ section rubber strip can be supplied to form a seal between the weighbridge deck and pit sides.
Why Choose a Pit Mounted Weighbridge
- Space efficient – does not restrict vehicle movement at location
- Shallow pit foundations – upgrades available for existing pits (metric and imperial)
- Lengths and capacities to suit all sizes/combinations of farm and road haulage vehicles
- Steel and ‘pour on site’ concrete versions
