The UK’s market leader in vehicle on board weighing and axle overload protection, Vehicle Weighing Solutions Ltd (VWS) is launching its new tried and tested trailer weighing system at this year’s LAMMA show

Shaun Hamilton, sales director, VWS: “Having a robust and accurate weighing system allows producers to know the precise yield for each field, immediately at the time of harvest. This saves time as the trailer no longer needs to return to the farm weigh-bridge each time

“The system has been successfully trialled with both cereal and root crops, and can be used to calibrate combine harvesters thereby improving the accuracy of the yield calculator.  Importantly it also keeps vehicles legal by preventing overloading, which can lead to heavy fines and penalties.

The ROCA load cell from VWS was originally designed for the waste management industry and is perfect for agricultural applications. It is extremely strong, lightweight and low profile, and has been trialled by four farming contractors over the past 12 months.  Testament to the success of the system VWS has received repeat orders from all participating organisation

Shaun added: “Two years ago we were approached by three large agricultural contractors and asked to develop a weighing solution. Whilst the application of weighing technology in certain areas of the sector is advanced, achieving immediate on-board yield calculation has, until now, proven very expensive and inaccurate. We are delighted to bring an affordable, accurate and easy to integrate system to the market place. We are looking forward to speaking to visitors at LAMMA.
