A crane scale is a dynamometer or load cell outfitted with equipment appropriate for suspended weighing, such as large openings in upper shackles, with hooks on the bottom and large dials for easy distant viewing. The inherent efficiency of the crane scale guarantees its continuing popularity.
Crane scales perform the dual function of picking up heavy objects and determining their weight. The essence of their functionality has remained the same over the years, but today’s crane scales boast additional features that make them easier and more efficient to use. These multi-functional devices have LCD/LED displays, rechargeable batteries and are available in compact, medium and heavy duty sizes that are able to lift weights from a single ton to two hundred and fifty tons.
