The Griffith Elder Portable Weigh Beams are a new development in portable weighing. The Weigh Beams provide a lightweight alternative to a full size portable weighbridge. They are particularly well suited to weighing tractors and trailers, and are designed for on or off-road weighing making them suitable for farm use. The Ton-Tel™ Split Weigh system ensures that maximum accuracy is guaranteed at all times. The Portable Weigh Beams are provided as a complete kit price and include ancillaries such as traffic light, large display and printer.

Simple to Operate - Factory Calibrated

The Portable Weigh Beams are factory calibrated so no special on-site set up is required. Simply place the beams into position and connect the two ramps, plug in the indicator, traffic light and large display. Switch on the indicator and begin weighing vehicles. The 2.8m Weigh Beams are suitable to weigh tractors and trailers. The 4.4m Weigh Beams are suitable to weigh tractors and trailers and standard UK articulated vehicles.

Rugged and Portable - 12V Battery - Position Anywhere

The weight sensors in each Portable Weigh Beam are designed to be robust and durable. The Portable Weigh Beams run from 12 Volts DC either mains power or leisure batteries can be used, the indicator also holds 7 hours battery life. This makes the system suitable for remote locations without mains power.

Automatic Weighing and Printing

Weighing a vehicle using the Portable Weigh Beams is quick, automatic and driver operated. The driver approaches the weighbridge and moves the first set of axles onto the Weigh Beams, the traffic light will display a red cross until the Weigh Beams have recorded a steady weight. Once this weight is recorded it will automatically be printed onto the ticket and saved onto the USB stick, the weight will also be shown on the large display. The traffic light will then change to a green arrow and the driver can then proceed to move forward and move the next set of axles onto the Weigh Beams. The same process is then repeated. In less than 20 seconds the weights are added together, saved to a USB stick and the ticket is then automatically printed. The ticket includes the weights, date and time.


The Portable Weigh Beams can be used in conjunction with an extensive range of Ton-Tel™ Weighbridge Software. There is also an additional fob system available that allows the vehicles nett weight to be allocated to a fob, when this fob is pressed the nett weight and fob number are automatically printed onto the weighbridge ticket. Without the fob system the Weigh Beams work in the same way but if nett weights are required the operation mode will need to be changed on the indicator. The indicator, printer and USB port can either be desk mounted, or they can be in built into a weatherproof carry case for ease of movement between locations.
