Payload Weighing

  • Check reports at the beginning or end of shift to check on daily productivity.
  • Confirm that daily productivity is on target.
  • Calculate tonnage per hour.
  • Identify areas of improvement for operators.
  • Manage inventory by product type and match with customer demand.
  • Evaluate performance to contract.
  • Select attachments such as buckets to align with changes in bucket-fill factor.

Payload Weighing for Articulated Dump Trucks

Optional onboard payload weighing for Deere ADTs provides overload protection, as well as the ability to track total tonnage and cycles. The system will even calculate carryback after the load is dumped for accurate production values. Mirror-mounted load indicators inform the operator when the truck is nearing capacity.
