  • Marsden PT-600 Pallet Truck Scale with Printer

    What is the PT-600?

    The Marsden PT-600 is a heavy duty, 2000kg capacity pallet truck weighing scale with a built in printer. This scale makes weighing palletised goods quick and simple, with an easy to use indicator and low profile fork dimensions that make is suitable for almost any pallet type, such as euro pallets. The printer means you can create a ticket of the results every time you weigh a pallet.

    What is the difference between the PT-600 and the PT-200?

    You’ll notice that the Marsden pallet truck scales range has a number of different models, and some at first may seem identical. The PT-600, with its built in printer, is almost identical to the PT-200. However, the significant difference is the scale’s indicator. The PT-200 indicator is stainless steel, and is IP67 certified, whereas the PT-500 indicator is not. However, the indicator of the PT-600 has a slightly larger display (with bright red LED readings, making the display visible in almost any lighting conditions) and functions are easier to access. The main structure of the PT-600, as with the PT-200, is tough, durable mild steel.

    Why choose a pallet truck scale?

    Pallet truck scales are highly popular in factories, warehouses and yards because they can move items as well as weigh them. This means there is no need for a separate weighing scale such as a platform scale to weigh pallets. For example, using a pallet truck scale effectively removes one step in the process of loading a vehicle. Plus, the Accumulation function can add up weights to ensure you know the total weight being loaded onto a vehicle, and therefore vehicles are not overloaded.

    Ultimately, pallet truck scales can save time - as this video.shows.

    Why should I choose the PT-600?

    Choose the PT-600 is ideal for heavy duty weighing and transporting of palletised goods. The inbuilt printer is ideal for internal recordkeeping. Printed readings from the scale will allow you to keep records of in-coming and out-going shipments, attach weight documentation to shipments and show compliance. Count, gross weight and net weight and accumulation can all be printed - sample print outs can be seen below.


    This rugged pump truck scale has an internal rechargeable battery providing 40 hours’ use, and a programmable auto power-off and indicator screensaver will prolong battery life. An adaptor is supplied for charging. Low profile forks (with just 78mm ground clearance) make this pallet truck an even more flexible weighing solution, and four load cells in the forks provide accurate weight readings to 500g. Weight readings are displayed as 32mm high, bright red LED digits on the indicator screen. The scale features Tare to remove the weight of the pallet from the display.

What is a pallet truck scale?

A pallet truck scale is a pump truck with an integrated high capacity weighing scale. A pallet truck scale allows you to lift and move a pallet and weigh it in one process.

Pallet truck scales are a popular choice for factories and warehouses because they allow palletised goods to be weighed quickly and easily. They are also a portable weighing scale, meaning the scale can be taken to the load rather than the other way around, as in the case of platform scales.

 

What are the benefits of a pallet truck scale?

A pallet truck scale is a portable weighing solution, allowing you to move pallets as well as weigh them.

Pallet truck scales are most commonly used for weighing goods before loading onto a vehicle. Palletised goods can be moved from its location to a despatch area using a pallet truck scale, with a weight reading taken before the goods is loaded onto the vehicle. Accumulation is a function on some Marsden pallet truck scales that allows you to totalise several pallet weights, given you a total goods weight for your vehicle.

Some pallet truck scales have a built in printer, allowing you to create a record of the weights of pallets.

Choose Marsden’s IP-rated pallet truck scales and you can weigh palletised goods in tougher environments. The PT-450, for example, is IP68 waterproof, so you won’t need to worry if it’s used in damp or wet environments, or if it’s taken outside to load a vehicle or collect a pallet.

All Marsden pallet truck scales are powered by rechargeable battery.

Ultimately, pallet truck scales are designed to speed up weighing, moving and loading processes.

 

Which pallet truck scale is best for me?

For standard, streamlined pallet weighing, the PT-100 and PT-500 are just the job. Both are accurate to 500g and both have a 2000kg capacity. The difference between the two is the indicator, with the PT-100 having a stainless steel indicator. The PT-500’s indicator has a larger and brighter display, however, and an Accumulation function. Both have a Tare function so you can remove the weight of the pallet itself from the display.

Need to keep a weight print-out for each pallet you weigh? This may be useful for record keeping or if you need to attach a weight record to goods you weigh. The PT-200 and PT-600 both have built-in printers for creating a hard copy of your weight readings. Again, the main difference is the indicators, with the PT-200 having a stainless steel indicator. Both are accurate to 500g with a 2000kg capacity.

If you need to use a pallet truck scale in damp, dusty or humid environments, choose the PT-400. It’s an IP67 stainless steel scale – but for ultimate durability in tough environments, there’s the PT-450. This pallet truck scale is IP68 waterproof making it suitable for the harshest environments.

Both scales have a 2000kg capacity and are accurate to 500g; however, the PT-450 is built to order and other capacities and graduations may be available on request.
