The LIFT-N-WEIGH series of forklift scales and loader scales operate on the principal that there is a direct correlation between the pressure in the cylinder and weight on the forks. A pressure transducer in the instrument changes the hydraulic pressure in the primary lift cylinder to an electronic signal which is displayed as weight on the forks.
Installation of your lift truck scale consists of mounting the weigh meter, pre-calibrated to customer’s specs, at a location that is convenient and easy for the operator to read. Installation consists of installing a 1/4″ NPT female fitting (not included with the scale) in the hydraulic line between the control valve and the primary lift cylinder and connecting the power cord to the battery. The 6′ hose furnished with the scale has, at each end, male 1/4″ pipe thread fitting. One end screws into the fitting customer furnished and other end into the swivel elbow on back of LNW.
