Come and visit us in Hall 7, Stand A28

Griffith Elder will be returning to AgriTechnica exhibition in Hanover, Germany this November to showcase our weighing systems and weighbridges, with a particular focus on our On-Board Weighing Systems, Portable Weigh Beams & software.


Here at Griffith Elder, we have made weighing on the farm our focus for more than 40 years. We work closely with farmers and agricultural businesses, as well as original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to understand real farm requirements and conditions.

Griffith Elder currently exports to more than 50 countries worldwide, and are actively looking for distributors. Our Weigh Beams are particularly simple to transport, store and supply as a standard package. Interested parties are welcome to visit us in Hall 7, Stand A28.

We provide a wide range of robust, low-maintenance and practical weighing products, ideal for farm use. Our weighing solutions offer methods of controlling, recording and reporting weight and associated data, across the whole farming cycle.

OEM On-Board Weighing

“Griffith Elder’s on-board weighing systems are specifically developed in-house for numerous applications and calibrated in factory ensuring high accuracy. Griffith Elder digital load cells are perfect for OEMs as they can simply Plug-and-Weigh, making not only installation quick and easy, but service and repairs for customers are simple also.”

Our onboard weighing systems have been a particular area of expertise for the company for approximately 30 years, with systems installed by their OEM partners onto a wide variety of agricultural vehicles and trailed machines. This has included systems for manufacturers of Tipping Trailers, Spreaders, Hook and Lift Trailers, Mobile Grain Mills and Diet Feeders.

The fundamental part of these systems are the Digital Weightel™ Load Cells. These are factory-calibrated load cells, requiring no calibration by the manufacturers at the time of assembly and providing actual weight values and diagnostics directly from the load cells.

The load cells are installed onto the vehicle or trailer, and due to their plugin connections are easily wired to the control unit. The on-board weigher is then ready for use, no re-calibration is needed. All of our load cells are manufactured to the highest quality, in stainless steel as standard with hermetically welded sealing.

One example of our applications is the innovative tipping trailer solution which uses pin load cells that replace the tipping pins at the rear of the trailer and load cells at the front that support the body when it is in the lowered position. This therefore provides a smooth weight display & output of the trailer contents even when the trailer is being driven across a field.

The Griffith Elder weighing systems are highly versatile and can easily be incorporated into any vehicle trailer. Visit our stand at AgriTechnica in Hall 7 Stand A28 to discuss more details.

CAN-Weightel Systems

Griffith Elder’s CAN-Weightel product range is designed in-house for ease of use and versatility. The CAN-Weightel is J1939 and ISObus compatible, making it particularly useful in the world of agricultural, automotive and off-road machinery.

At the heart of Griffith Elder CANbus weighing systems are the digital CAN-Weightel Load Cells that have their own CAN ECU embedded inside each load cell.

Installation, operation and service is simple, resulting in a convenient system for OEMs who wish to construct machines, implements or vehicle incorporating weighing.

Systems can be built quickly and easily. Up to 16 load cells of any type can be used with a mixture of load cell capacity or individual calibration factors.

Weigh Beams

Griffith Elder’s Weigh Beams provide a lightweight and versatile option as an alternative to a full-size weighbridge. This therefore removes the need for expensive site preparations and the time involved for relocation and assembly.

The operation utilises the Griffith Elder Split Weigh system, a completely automatic process. No user input is required, and the driver can remain in the tractor cab throughout the process.

The Weigh Beams come complete with a combined large display and traffic light, as well as remote FOB buttons. Everything is pre-calibrated and ready to plug in and weigh.

All individual records and totals are saved to a USB as a CSV file so harvest information can be put straight into a spreadsheet, providing yield per field or store totals.

Weighbus Software

Griffith Elder’s Weighbus Software is suitable for a range of processes, with agricultural, industrial and law enforcement versions available. Calculate totals, including gross, nett and tare weights for each vehicle.

The Weighbus Software is simple to operate and use, reducing error and the risk of data loss. Weights, fields, crops, stores and other data are stored in the database for detailed reporting. The software can also be linked to our traffic lights, large displays, cameras, road barriers and touchscreen terminals.

Full-Size Weighbridge

Griffith Elder’s Full-Size Weighbridge provides high-precision weighing with a long-lasting and reliable guarantee.

It is durable & robust, therefore suitable for use in harsh environments. The weighbridge is a modular design so it can be easily dismantled and reassembled, for easy installation and service.

Our sandwich construction provides heavy-duty strength in a low profile. This results in simplified, lower-cost groundworks. It can be installed in a pit, on the surface or 100% portable with steel fold-out ramps; an investment for future installations.

The weighbridge comes complete with a combined large display and traffic light, as well as remote FOB buttons. Our Full-Size Weighbridges are compatible with our Weighbus software, for detailed reporting.


With decades of experience, you can be sure that we have the right solution for you. For more information on our products, visit the contact us page and get in touch!
