Accuweigh ’s Sydney branch was recently commissioned to supply a trade approved axle weigher at the RTA’s new checking station at Bonville, just south of Coffs Harbour in NSW.
Measuring 6m by 4.5m to enable it to weigh the latest breed of quad axle groups, the oversize QWM manufactured trade axle weigher will be installed by Accuweigh’s Newcastle branch and is a special build for the RTA.
With a weight capacity of 60t, this axle weigher features very heavy duty construction to ensure a long and trouble free operating life, and is fitted with heavy gauge 610mm universal beams.
Another special feature of QWM’s trade axle weighers is the shallow pit design with access to the load cells through removable hatches built into the weighbridge deck. This design feature eliminates the need for a confined space permit when cleaning the weighbridge pit, or for access to the weighbridge load cells.
This trade axle weigher is also fitted with four large digit remote displays to show axle weight readings and aggregate truck weights simultaneously. The axle weighers will be a totally attended installation and all weighings will be performed by an RTA inspector.
