How do I use my scale?

In order to get an accurate weight with your on-board scale, 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. Weights are displayed on the easy-to-read digital display.

How does my scale work?

LoadMaxx works on trucks with air drive suspensions and most trucks with leaf spring steer axles and air suspension drive axles. 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.

People say the nicest things

Well, in a word, price! Not going to lie. We have had other scale systems in the past, and they are very pricey! With Air weigh, same technology, better customer support, and really, half the cost. And in business, nothing is wrong with that!

In the first month of use, we identified approximately $30,000 lost revenue from underpriced accounts that we were servicing on a monthly basis. We were able to renegotiate those accounts over the following five months and realize a $10,000 profit. While we were not able to keep every single customer, we were able to realize over $260,000 in annual operational income from the weight audits.

American Made

Air-Weigh is founded and located in Oregon and all of our scales are American Made. We feel that keeping our product manufacturing local allows us to provide our customers with the highest quality on-board scales around.
