Loader scales that increase your productivity with adaptability

15 March 2018

In the ever-changing marketplace, project managers need to ensure that they’re focused on generating the maximum productivity from their site and equipment. One way to do this is to ensure that every piece of equipment is operating at maximum efficiency.

The Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale is an investment in productivity, this loader scale from Position Partners has the adaptability to go on a range of heavy vehicles around your site, enabling you to keep your technology purchases to a minimum while still increasing your productivity.

What can the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale be used for?

In its basic form, the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale from Position Partners is a tool to indicate the weight lifted by the loader and loaded into the truck, hopper, pile etc.

From there it evolves into a complete management tool with data storage, Wi-Fi and internet connections to send the captured data anywhere in the world. 

The Loadmaster loader scale was the first loader scale in Australia to gain a pattern approval to allow it to be used for trade purposes. This loader scale can help project managers overcome the following challenges:

  • Load record keeping;
  • ‘The Chain of Responsibility’ legislation;
  • Underutilization of plant;
  • Equipment matching for productivity. 

The key benefits of the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale are its ease of use and that it can be configured to be a basic scale or a fully featured load management recording tool. This loader scale is also a key tool in the compliance of ‘The Chain of Responsibility’ legislation. 

What is ‘The Chain of Responsibility’ legislation and how does it relate to the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale?

In short, while the drivers and operators of heavy vehicles have been the focus of road laws, breaches are often caused by the actions of others.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator has introduced ‘The Chain of Responsibility’ legislation to ensure that anyone, not just the driver or operator of the heavy vehicle, who has control over the transport task can be held responsible for breaches of road laws and may be legally liable.

The Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale can work for you to ensure that you are not overloading your vehicles and the Load Record Keeping feature of this loader scale means that you can keep track of all your loads within a certain time period. This data is then on hand if you need to prove that you have not overloaded a vehicle.

How adaptable is the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale?

Position Partners Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale is adaptable enough to be installed on a range of machines including:

  • Front end loaders of any size;
  • Telescopic handlers;
  • Fork lifts;
  • Container lifters.

“We aim to make the integration between the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scales and your machine as seamless as possible,” said Chris Nussey, RDS Business Development Manager, Position Partners.

“The Loadmaster is the best value for money loader scale on the market today.”

How can the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale improve efficiency on site?

“Prior to implementing the Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale, project managers would be relying on the operators to manually record load data, opening up the ability to ‘fudge the figures’ and user error in relation to weights, truck cycles and what went where,” said Chris Nussey, RDS Business Development Manager, Position Partners. 

“Purchasing a Loadmaster is an investment in productivity! Along with increased logging ability of jobs - to be able to recall one particular truck load loaded in the past, say six months, to prove no overload or just the weight loaded if an accident happened is invaluable.”

The Loadmaster Alpha 100 loader scale has a range of stand-out features that set it apart from its competitors:

  • Its user interface is extremely straight forward which ensures that new users can be trained to use these loader scales in a very short amount of time;
  • The Loadmaster also improves the efficiency of operators by removing manual inputs with GPS, barcode reader and RF tag reader. These attachments allow the operator to automatically select products, trucks and locations without touching the screen;
  • The Loadmaster’s integrated reverse camera improves safety on the site while improving efficiency.

“The Loadmaster also has the ability to be controlled from any computer in the world with an internet connection,” said Chris Nussey, RDS Business Development Manager, Position Partners.

“The Position Partners support team is always just a ‘click’ away too.”
