Actually, you would need three: each wheel and the
tongue. When I weigh my car, I use a scale under each
wheel, and add them all up for a total weight.
You might also try a moving company. They often
have large scales for weighing vehicles. ALthough they
might be using the same scales as the truck stop.
Drive on with truck and trailer and check weight.
Remove trailer, weigh truck alone.
Not at all. When I weigh my Cobra to set corner and
cross weights, I use 4 bathroom scales and 4 fulcrums.
Not as easy as fancy racing scales, but they sure are
a whole lot cheaper.
I was thinking it was a small lightweight trailer,
since a truck scale couldn't do it. But 1,500# is a
lot of weight (for an empty trailer).
If you just want to know how much the trailer weighs,
I would weigh truck and trailer together, then remove
the trailer and weigh the truck alone.
If you want to know how the trailer is balanced, where
the center is, etc, you'll need individual scales.
if he's got a small utility trailer 3 300lb bathroom scales could do the
job. we don't know what size trailer he's trying to weigh. but since its so
light that it wont show on a truck scale I would guess that its a small
utility trailer or 4 wheeler trailer something of that sort.
If you want a real answer to your problem ask me not this guy as he is
just a troll. There is a simple solution. Go the any farmers
grainer/mill that accepts grain. They will have scalles that can
easily weight it. I have one near here that can weigh anything from a
few hunderd pounds to 100,000 lbs and it is rated plus or minus 20
pounds around 4K. I use it to weigh vehicles and front and rear axle
weights. Truck stop scales are generaly not as flexible.
We laugh "with" Roy but we laugh "at" you Snoball. The sooner this sinks
into that thick head of yours the better.
Man I seriously do not know why this guy keeps posting... To say he was
dense would be an understatement. I think along with posting corrections
to his dribble we should include links to his other "masterpieces". This
may keep him from anymore vain attempts at distorting the facts as I
think he forgets everything he says gets archived.
