Weighing system on a grain trailer?


Anybody got one?

Seems like they have been around on trucks for plenty of years now, must be a way of fitting something to grain trailers for sensible money?


Rds here does seem pretty accurate when checked on weighbridge,about £1200 if I remember correctly.Trailer needs loading evenly front to back and if you need it for multiple trailers you do need the correct one


We use two trailers most of the time so would just want a system fitted to each trailer permanently I think
We use 2 trailers as well so have 2 rds weighlog they're simply plugged into the tipping pipe so if you know the calibration factor for each or any of your trailers you just need to change it in the display to swap trailers. I've not done it yet as each system is calibrated for it's trailer and we've not needed to swap .
Then if you buy a new trailer it's very easy to keep the system and put it on a new one
