Pallet Truck Scales: An Overview

Cargo container and shipping pallets with cardboard boxes

Pallet truck scales (also called pallet jack scales) are tools designed to weigh and move pallets. They allow users to move and weigh heavy pallets simultaneously to save time and make transportation easier. This post will be a short guide on pallet jack scales and their applications.

Pallet jack scales are very robust instruments designed for heavy duty weighing applications in the industrial and commercial sectors. They're well adapted to warehouses, docks, shipping and receiving facilities, shipyards and other demanding environments. If pallets are moved and weighed, there are pallet jack scales for the job.


Key Features


Pallets typically weigh about 4600 lbs and our PTS has a 5000lb / 2000kg capacity. The PTS needs to be strong enough to withstand daily heavy-duty weighing and transporting without breaking or compromising its lifespan or precision. The steel fork is reinforced to ensure a durable lifting capability, and the base is made of mild steel. The PTS indicator is sealed to ensure dust, spills and humidity are not detrimental to the scale's precision readings.

The rugged wheels are made of polyurethane, so they can handle higher weight capacities. They're also less noisy, and they have a strong grip on the floor without damaging it. Polyurethane wheels resist corrosion and chemicals, which is helpful in wet or humid areas, or in environments where chemicals and solvent are used frequently.

The PTS is designed to transport the heavy loads being weighed to optimize the process, saving time and money. Our scales are used in every industry all over the world, so our PTS is as mobile as possible, since it can encounter all types of environmental configurations, whether it's a convention center warehouse in Germany or a shipyard in China. The PTS has zero-radius pivoting handle to be easy to manoeuver even in tight spots and small corners. Its wheels swivel and are smooth to make sure transporting pallets is easy and safe.



Whether it's a small warehouse or a global shipping and receiving company, keeping track of the pallets and gathering data is important. The indicator includes an RS-232 interface to connect to printers and computers to collect and analyze data. You can even get specialized software like Adam DU to visualize and export data.


More Practical Features

Pallet jack scales have non-marring wheels, which saves time on cleaning the floors later and helps expensive flooring last longer. The indicator features color-coded keys and has audible alarms to prevent overload and simplify checkweighing. A bright display, a zero tracker and checkweighing lights are some useful features offered on the indicator. To see the rest of the PTS's features, go to
