Pit Mounted Weighbridge

Whether you choose a surface or pit-mounted weighbridge will depend on a number of factors specific to your application. The good news is that Parkerfarm has a range of weighbridges suitable for both options and we can help you select the best solution.

Pit-mounted weighbridges are a well-established design and allow vehicles to drive on and off the deck, without the restriction of ramps. The pit is normally enclosed on all sides and it is important that adequate drainage is built into the civil design. However, it is possible to construct the pit with three sides, to facilitate cleaning. An optional ‘T’ section rubber strip can be supplied to form a seal between the weighbridge deck and pit sides.


Why Choose a Pit Mounted Weighbridge

  • Space efficient – does not restrict vehicle movement at location
  • Shallow pit foundations – upgrades available for existing pits (metric and imperial)
  • Lengths and capacities to suit all sizes/combinations of farm and road haulage vehicles
  • Steel and ‘pour on site’ concrete versions


Pit Mounted Weighbridge Upgrade Service

As part of our service, we can provide foundation drawings for your weighbridge, so if you have an existing pit weighbridge that needs upgrading, we can build a bespoke size deck that fits into your existing pit. Our upgrade solution includes load cells, mounting hardware and instrumentation.

Agrideck CC Concrete Pit Mounted Weighbridge

Concrete weighbridges are ideal for a wide range of agricultural applications. Our pit-mounted concrete Agrideck is constructed using ready-mixed concrete contained within a lightweight prefabricated steel frame with integral reinforcing bars and base. This cost-effective design is easy to install and provides a robust, maintenance-free, weighing deck.

  • Trade-approved
  • Low-maintenance deck
  • Lightweight steel retaining structure for ease of transportation and installation
  • Concrete poured on site
  • Non-standard widths & lengths in capacities up to 80 t
  • Optional ‘T’ rubber sealing strip to keep pit free of debris
  • Stainless steel, fully waterproof load cells (IP69K)
  • Wide range of weight indicators
  • Driver-managed weighing (VRS) option for fast weighing

The steel frame is initially installed on site with dummy load cells, this allows levelling adjustments to be made and the load cell base plates to be welded. The stainless steel load cells are then fitted, locked off and the frame in-filled with ready-mixed concrete. When this has cured, the weighbridge can be calibrated in the normal way. The non-slip finish provides an excellent chemical and skid-resistant surface.
