The normal route of identifying any vehicle’s weight is typically from the manufacturer’s handbook. As most emergency vehicles are specially built by a vehicle converter, adding seats, cabinetry, and many other items during the conversion process, this dramatically affects final vehicle gross weight as well as axle load. This makes the manufacturer’s figures given against the base vehicle, of limited use.
A common method to subsequently identify vehicle weight is by use of a local Public Weighing Station; this may not be situated in a convenient location so can be a very time consuming option, especially when considering additional queuing time.
Vehicle weight is particularly important to ensure that vehicle axle weights are not exceeded, which can result in vehicles becoming dangerous to drive and costly to run.
Portable Axle Weighing Pads from Avery Weigh-Tronix provide an ideal solution, allowing quick spot checks by total weight, axle weight or by individual wheel if needed.
