Rice Lake SURVIVOR OTR Truck Scale

Rice Lake’s SURVIVOR® Truck Scales are designed and built to be the toughest scales on earth. Heavy duty structural steel I-beams provide maximum rigidity. The patented G-Force® self-checking mounting system eliminates excess movement by using 100% of the gravity from the loading action against itself — instantly returning the scale to dead center without check rods or bumper bolts. With 25% to 30% more of highest grade structural steel content than competitive models, SURVIVOR® scales last for decades — not years.

For applications where steel is preferred or downtime is critical, choose the SURVIVOR® OTR Steel Deck. Operational within a day, the easy-to-install SURVIVOR OTR Steel Deck sets the standard for truck scale design and performance, keeping downtime to a minimum. Tightly spaced wide-flange I-beams form the industry's strongest weighbridge design, weighing as many as 250 trucks per day for 25 years without a trace of weighbridge fatigue.

A tire’s life beyond the road

A tire comes into this world for just one purpose. It carries us from point “A” to point “B” and back again thousands of times. And then it’s over, sometimes with a bang, and other times just slowly and gradually. But at a tire’s end-of-life, then what? The world only needs so many tire swings, garden sculptures, and DIY craft projects. Where does all that tread go? Many of these “rubber souls” enjoy an afterlife well beyond their 50,000-mile warranty, thanks in large part to the resourcefulness of companies such as Ecore International (Ecore) out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Weighing The Options

When state regulations changed to prohibit split-weighing on legal-for-trade truck scales, and with a growing volume of scale traffic, Alter Metal Recycling in Eau Claire, Wisconsin found themselves in need of a new solution. They could no longer weigh trucks on an axle-by-axle basis and provide the sum as the truck’s total weight (split-weighing). While their existing pit-mounted mechanical truck scale could accommodate most vehicles, the business was expanding, and the increasing frequency of large commercial clients arriving in fully loaded semi-trucks demanded a larger, longer scale.
