Call to Order
Accurate weighing is becoming more and more important to successful hog farmers. Whether it is helping you keep more accurate records, or preventing costly sorting mistakes, this digital scale is bound to save you money! Take the guesswork out of trying to read accurate weight on a trembling dial, a waving balance beam, or the fluctuating digital display on most other electronic scales. Pigs can’t fool the WayPig® Digital Scale - whether a pig is calm or excited doesn’t matter. As the animal continues to move around on the scale, the electronics will average its weight in seconds, with 99% accuracy! Gates on each end have sure-close latches at top and bottom, yet open with a flip of one lever. Bars on the sides are removable. The animal can be observed from all four sides and can be accessed for injections or marking. Two heavy-duty, stainless steel load cells installed under the floor absorb the shock load of active animals during weighing. Electronics are in a seamless housing for full protection from dust and moisture. This unit features a liquid crystal display with large numbers, plus keys for power, tare (which gets the scale back to zero), and one that lets you double-check the animal’s weight without taking it off the scale. Requires two
AA batteries (not included) or 110V household current through the AC/DC converter. Capacity of 300 lbs. in 1-lb. increments. At each end of the scale, there is a see-through mesh that encourages the hog to enter. Gates can be operated with one hand. As the gates close, they automatically lock. Since it is only 22 in. W, it can easily fit into very narrow spaces. 53 in. L x 22 in. W x 46 in. H. Allow extra delivery time.
