Surface Mounted Weighbridge

As the UK’s leading supplier of farm weighbridges, we offer an unrivalled range of surface-mount and pit designs. Their modular design ensures there is always a weighbridge system for your application.


Surface 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, Parkerfarm has a range of weighbridges suitable for both options and we can help you select the best solution.

Surface-mounted weighbridges have the advantage, that they do not need a dedicated concrete pit with drainage. As long as you have a structurally sound, flat concrete base with access, then a surface weighbridge can be installed. Access to the weighbridge is typically achieved via ramps – these can be steel or concrete. Concrete ramps are cast in situ and require steel end frames within the concrete for strength. (It should be remembered that all weighbridges need a small controlled amount of movement, end to end).


Surface – Pit Crossover

Depending on the location of where your weighbridge is to be installed, (with some imaginative civil works), it is possible to install a surface weighbridge where the concrete approach ramps are level. This design speeds up weighing and leaves the sides of the weighbridge open.
