Precise Loading

  • Standard Payload provides on-the-go load weighing to hit precise load targets every time—reduce load times, optimize loading efficiency, and increase jobsite productivity.
  • Automated tracking helps site managers monitor and manage production, helping you improve efficiency and lower costs.
  • Payload helps you know exactly how to optimize your truck fleet size for reduced operator, fuel, and maintenance costs.
  • Automatic weighing provides estimated weights on lift and scaled weights after swing.
  • Get real-time estimates of bucket payload without having to swing. Quickly view adjusted weights and tip off any excess material from your bucket.
  • Bucket payloads are easily transferred to the truck cumulative payload weight.
  • View bucket payload and truck cumulative payload weight effortlessly from the touchscreen monitor.
  • Receive payload overload alerts when final bucket loads exceed payload limits and audible alerts of weigh status accuracy, last pass, and when final bucket payload will overload truck.
  • Track daily productivity from the cab with quick access to truck target weights, loads and cycle counts, material movement, and daily totals with no loss of productivity due to underloading.

Increase Productivity

  • Achieve precise load targets and increase loading efficiency with on-the-go weighing and real time estimates of your payload without swinging.
  • Easily monitor load targets in cab, keeping you focused on loading the truck.
  • Static weigh helps you efficiently weigh an object with quick measured payload while the machine is stationary.
  • Calibration can be performed in a matter of minutes.

Lower Your Costs

  • Work confidently without guesswork and precisely load targets every time, saving operating costs.
  • Reduce underloads, overloads, and load cycles, eliminating trips to the scale and saving costs on moving material.
  • Load trucks to optimum payload and move more material.
  • Improve consistency for operators at all experience levels.

Monitor Your Work

  • Track daily productivity from the cab with quick access to truck target weights, load and cycle counts, material movement, and daily totals.
  • Combine Payload with Cat LINK technologies to remotely access data, manage operations, and keep production targets on track.
