Griffith Elder has been working with AW Trailers to create the ideal on-board agricultural trailer weighing system. This system has become a favourable option with agricultural contractors. It is fitted to the trailer and therefore eliminates the need to stop at a public weighbridge. This can be time-consuming and a logistical nightmare.

Robinson Agricultural Services

Thomas Robinson of Robinson Agricultural Services in Devon has had an on-board weighing system fitted to his AW trailer for over a year. He is utilising it throughout the agricultural calendar; transporting grain, grass silage, and chicken manure. They operate from Devon right up through to Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire. They therefore required a weighing system that was portable, time-efficient and as practical as possible.

Mr Robinson’s favourable features of the system are that it is robust and withstands the day-to-day of farm life. The diversity of each farm task requires a user-friendly system. It also requires an easy transfer between differing tractor-trailer combinations. The in-cab indicator is a compact electronic device which continually displays the true-live weight. This ensures there are no errors in weight changes of the trailer loads due to moisture loss and gain throughout the day.

The on-board weighing system has the optional extra of a totalising indicator. This allows the operator to save individual weights for a batch total. This will display the number of loads a driver has completed and the weight of each load, it will also enable the driver to see the total weight transported at the end of the day. A printer can also be added to the system which allows for ticket records to be printed off.

The Griffith Elder kits are highly versatile and can be fitted with other trailer manufacturers as well, just request Griffith Elder when you discuss your options with your trailer manufacturer.
