On-board scale technology now available for compact machines
| February 29, 2008 |
The same on-board scale technology used to keep accurate weight measures of larger loaders is now an option for smaller machines. VEI™s Helper Mini, available through RMT Equipment, provides small wheel loader and skid steer users with immediate feedback regarding weight and other information during loading and beyond. The Helper Mini™s technology works with the machine to detail an accurate weight of each bucketful of material. Up to 20 different materials along with their properties can be stored into the mini™s memory, so each time a user loads material into the bucket, the scale can recall the amount based on its weight. Users can also track other information each time a load goes out, such as project ID and product name.
