It’s the sign you see just before you cross a bridge. If the bridge is covered, the weight may only allow 1000 pounds – or less.
I’ve never questioned the weight of my own car and my occupants—whether live or inanimate — blindly trusting that the bridge would hold us up for as long as it took us to cross the bridge.
But what if you’re hauling cows, horses – farm equipment? Not knowing the exact weight of your cargo could be tragic.
How can you find that number? How much does your load weigh? As a kid we once held our animals in our arms, and jumped on the scale, and subtracted our own weight to find out how much the pet weighed. Impossible to do with a cow – or a car.
The earliest known scales are known as balance scales. They were relatively simple to make and could measure relative weight. Over the centuries, scale technology advanced to the point where scales can accurately measure an object’s weight, up to a millionth of a gram. Advancements in scale technology have assisted a wide array of industries including agriculture, petrochemicals, and international and domestic shipping.
