Joe Mayberry, scale salesman extraordinaire for American Weighing Systems, Atlanta, Georgia, is rightly proud of this new OTR SURVIVOR truck scale installed in a three-sided pit for a Butler Sand Company sand mine operation. Lloyd Shapard, LL Designs, Inc., did the installation and fabricated the MSHA-approved guardrail.
The workmanship is just plain beautiful. Mike Bordino, Rice Lake southeastern regional director, insisted on close-ups of the end caps and debris guards, and a long shot down the scale showing the linear perfection of Lloyd’s work.
Lloyd laid a concrete slab beside the scale so front loaders are not losing traction in the fine white sand while they are topping the load. A LaserLight four-inch display is strategically placed so both the front loader driver and the truck driver can see when optimal weight is reached.
