Aug. 22, 2011 – LOADRITE has announced that the market-leading L-2180 loader scale has been approved for trade use in Canada by Measurement Canada, an agency of the Government of Canada.

"The Notice of Approval means we passed an extremely extensive testing regime with flying colors," says Nathan Cables, GM LOADRITE North America.

A Legal for Trade loader scale offers huge cost savings when compared to the costs of a truck scale and scale-house operator. Wheel loaders are effectively turned into a mobile weighbridge which is especially valuable at mobile or remote sites.

The L-2180 loader scale approval certificate from Measurement Canada holds the highest resolution of any loader scale approved for the Canadian market. This means that with a LOADRITE L-2180 scale, a bucket load of up to 14 tonnes can be weighed in 50kg increments. This is double the resolution of the nearest competitor.

Cables says, "We understand the pressure our customers are under to extract maximum value from every truck load. That customer need drove us to work very hard with Measurement Canada obtain the best accuracy and highest resolution possible for the L-2180 approval. This approval means that we tested as repeatedly accurate at under half a percent when using an approved legal for trade kit."

Cables continues "Measurement Canada were very professional to work with and really put our product under the microscope when testing. Having a certificate of approval from them is a testament to the accuracy and reliability of LOADRITE scale."

He concludes, "Our Canadian distributor network is proud to offer a Legal for Trade option. They know the efficiency gains it offers, as well as the peace of mind. We expect a lot more local business to develop now that we can offer this solution."
