Sherline hitch scale

Anyone use one of these? Worth 138.00?
So I ordered one, and the 5,000 lb gauge also. With that I'm going to play with it at axles also. I'll compare those readings then to a truck scale. And just see how close the comparison is. If that works out then I'm thinking this could be very convenient...

I have one and made adaptors to weight either a tongue trailer or a 5th wheel pin wt. Also have the 2000# and 5000# gauges.

I have a 2000 lb unit. It works well after I make it "settle down". I will push down on the tongue several times to make that happen. If you just set the tongue down on the scale, it does not measure correctly until you move the tongue around a bit.

The Sherline scale is most accurate in the middle of the scale. If you expect a tongue/pin weight of 1000 lbs (+/- 400 lbs), the the 2000 lb. scale is the best option. If you are expecting a tongue/pin weight of 2000 lbs and up (maybe 600 lbs. down), then the 5000 lb. unit would be best.

OC, I like your setup !! If I get the new 5th wheel we are hoping for, I might do something like that. I will have to get a 5000 lb. gauge, though.
