Case study: Ultrahawke truck scales for NSW feedlot

Supplier: Ultrahawke By: Jessica Bryant
11 May, 2010

Truck scales are in operation for weighing cattle and grain at a Feedlot operated by Mort & Co. near Inverell in northern New South Wales.

The truck scales were sold and installed by Ultrahawke's local agent, New England Weighing Service from Tamworth.

Ultrahawke's truck scales are fully Australian Made due to their total manufacture in Campbellfield, Victoria using locally produced BHP steel. Measuring twenty six metres long and three and a half metres wide, Ultrahawke's truck scales replaced an existing short deck Avery mechanical weighbridge that was no longer serviceable.

From start to finish, New England Weighing Service had the truck scales fully operational with four weeks of receiving the client's order due to Ultrahawk's ability to supply truck scales sections from existing stock. This incredibly short lead time for the truck scales to be fully commissioned suited the client's need to maintain accurate weight readings of all trucks carrying cattle when entering or leaving the feedlot.

Ultrahawke is Australia's largest manufacturer of truck scales and weighbridges has many loyal sales and service agents located in all states.
