I pull up with the front axle on the scales, record the reading, then both TV axles, then the total of TV and TT, and then just the trailer axles and record all of those. I will do another set of passes without the WDH spring bars hooked up. I take the trailer home, come back with the truck, and take readings on the front axle, both, and the rear axle. With about 11 readings, I can get all sorts of information.

As not to hold up production at the quarry, I always wait for a lull in the action before going across the scales.

With the readout at the scales, the scale operator doesn't have to do a thing but watch me and wonder "why the heck does he need all of those readings ??".
