One of the largest truck scales Cardinal Scale has ever manufactured shipped to scenic Black Mountain, NC last week. The model H150130-CY16 YUKON™ hydraulic truck scale measures a whopping 16-ft-wide by 130-ft-long (2,080 square feet of platform space), making it one of the biggest truck scales Cardinal has manufactured in recent history.
This NTEP, steel-deck YUKON™ features 150-ton overall capacity and 70-ton CLC with Guardian™ hydraulic compression load cells. Cardinal dealer Charlotte Scale sold the YUKON™ to Grovestone Quarry, where it was delivered by three trucks in Cardinal’s fleet last week.
The YUKON™ serves dual weighing purposes at Grovestone Quarry:
Weighing Product Moving into Inventory
- 225,000-lb Euclid R65’s are weighed bringing rock out of the quarry to keep track of inventory.
Weighing Outgoing Hopper Loadouts
- Over-the-road, roll-top semi-tractor trailers pull up underneath overhead hoppers for loading onto the NTEP legal-for-trade scale. The trucks must pull forward as their trailers are being loaded, which necessitated the extreme 130-foot-length.
Congratulations to Steve McMath and Charlotte Scale for this impressive truck scale installation that will be one for the Cardinal record books.
