Onboard scale systems are now available for Case wheel loaders. The two scale options, Loup Electronics’ Load Log 800 and Load Log 8000, are available for field installation on Case wheel loader models 521, 621, 721, 821 and 921.

Onboard scales provide a variety of productivity-enhancing benefits for wheel loader operations. Weighing “on the lift” speeds operation, enabling operators to load more trucks per shift, ensuring that trucks are correctly loaded the first time. Onboard scales help eliminate return trips for overloaded and under-loaded trucks, and reduce visits to the weigh scale.

The systems also improve site safety by eliminating unnecessary vehicle movements. A further benefit is that they generate operational logs to ensure accurate record keeping.

“We’re confident our wheel loader customers will appreciate the value of Loup’s onboard scales, said David Wolf, marketing manager for Case Construction Equipment.

“Loup Electronics is a trusted supplier to Case and has a strong reputation in the industry for their customer service, which was a key factor in choosing them to supply onboard scales for Case wheel loaders.”

Darrell Farmer, president of Loup Electronics, added, “The relationship between Case and Loup Electronics has grown successfully during the past several years. We are delighted to be selected as the onboard scale supplier for the Case wheel loader product line. We want to assure Case customers that we will be working with the Case dealer network to provide dependable after sales support on a 24/7/365 basis.”

Case offers a full line of wheel loaders, ranging from the 521D, with a 2.25 cu. yd. (1.7 cu m) bucket capacity to the Case 921E, with a 5.75 cu. yd. (4.4 cu m) bucket capacity. Case also offers four compact wheel loaders.
