Australia’s most affordable wireless truck scale

If you haven’t heard of Appweigh yet, you may be rapt to hear about this fantastic and affordable no-scale load weighing solution. 

You no longer have to fork out thousands of dollars for a load scale fitment, calibration and maintenance. Nor should you have to spend hard-earned money for a mechanic to install your weight scale. 

The trucking applications of this product span from the all-important harvest to quarries and cement, to contractually required truck scales for subbies. Hello Appweigh! 

The kit is simple to install, with a basic understanding, and a sharp pair of hose cutters the only requirements. The free app based solution requires a laden and an unladen reading from a weighbridge – and there you go. 

Low battery notifications within the app will alert you for a battery swap out, which is simply done by unscrewing the protective cap and swapping them out. That’s really it. No monthly fees. No recalibrations. No maintenance.

Delving deeper into the technicalities, Appweigh is a Bluetooth-enabled weight sensor and app for air suspension trucks and trailers. Using push-to-connect fittings, the kit is fitted onto the air suspension lines, and with clear line of sight you can expect a Bluetooth reading range of up to 30 metres. 

With your truck weight clearly and safely displayed on your smart phone or tablet (Apple or Android), you don’t even need to leave your seat.

For those harsh and rough trucking environments – we’re talking quarries, outback and cement – TRAIL-LINK has created a Tough Kit. The resin-potted metal casing fully encloses the pneumatics to ensure that no water, stone or sun damage can occur to the push-to-connects, exposing only the durable Appweigh sensor for Bluetooth contact. This offers peace of mind for tough conditions. 

Not to leave out any corner of the market, TRAIL-LINK has gone even further and engineered a steel suspension solution. This nifty kit leverages the Load Sensing Valve to measure the pressure change between loads to determine load weight. 

Appweigh is proudly offered to the Australian market by TRAIL-LINK, which has done the hard work to adapt and engineer specifically for the varied and unforgiving Australian environment.
