On-board weighing systems specialist Compuload has been manufacturing weighing systems for wheel loaders, excavators, backhoes, telehandlers, forklifts and skid steer loaders since 1988.

Overloading or underloading trucks and other machinery is a one-way ticket to increased costs and a reduced bottom line. Overloading is also a workplace health and safety issue and attracts large fines for those who don’t comply, while underloading is simply a waste of space, fuel and time.

It is essential to get weights right the first time.

Compuload’s CL5000 and CL6000 weighing systems are suited to wheel loaders and telehandlers, and can weigh in both static mode and ‘lift speed compensation’ mode, which saves time by allowing loads to be weighed while lifting.

The weighing system collects weight data from a pressure transducer sensor placed in hydraulic lift lines for the arm and bucket of the machine and then relays it to a control console in the cab. The information gathered can then be compartmentalised.

"Both the CL5000 and CL6000 will totalize weigh readings, spilt load a truck and trailer weighs so you see want you have loaded on the truck and trailer separately as well as a grand total," the company says.

"The Compuload CL6000 has all of features of the CL5000 plus a few more features for operators and managers who require greater control of the weighing process."

This includes data management, the ability to store the weighing data within the CL6000 to be recalled or printed to the optional CL4070 printer later.  There is also an option to download the weighing data via the built-in USB port using a USB stick to easily transfer the weighing data to your PC.

For excavators, Compuload offers the 3B6 I.View excavator weighing system, suited to excavators over 14 tonnes, and with the same lift compensation as the CL5000 and CL6000.

"The 3B6 I View Excavator Load Weighing System has dual IP67 protected angle sensors that are mounted on the main boom and also the dipper arm which will monitor and compensate for the differing angles, and dual pressure sensors in the hydraulics for accurate readings," the company says.
