Railroad Scales

A railroad scale is a weighing device that is used to weigh railroad cars. The scale typically consists of a platform that the railroad car can be rolled onto. The platform is connected to a digital readout that displays the weight of the railroad car. There are different types of railroad scales, but all serve the same basic purpose. Some scales are very simple, while others are quite complex. 

Legal-For-Trade

We install and service models that qualify for "legal-for-trade" status as well as others. All installations meet the highest standards.

Scalable Installations

In-pit or above-ground styles, easy-maintenance and high durability models are available. Our scales use stainless load cells for longevity.

What Our Customers Say

"My experience with American Scale's technicians is and has been positive. They are here when I'm told they will be here, are always pleasant and willing to explain the problem, how and when they will fix it, etc. Overall satisfaction level is very good."

"All ASC technicians have been very professional and are very good at what they do. I have had some in our plant late hours and weekends and they stayed with the problem until the systems are returned to production. I wish I had more of them working with me here."

"I received a call from a gentleman at Conway Freight regarding your service at Conway in Louisville.  Apparently he was extremely impressed with the service, repairs and installations American Scale completed at the terminal.  During the years we have been doing national service, this is the first time one of the national accounts has called specifically to compliment a dealer.  He has never walked into a terminal and not called me with some issue that needs to be fixed.  He said a couple times over there was not one little thing wrong with the scales that he could find. I want to thank your for everything you have done to present because American Scale represents Rice Lake and you have made both companies look great!  The gentleman who called is also the person who controls the reweighs and scale purchases for Conway corporate.  With that said, he was impressed!"
