Because we “weigh in” with generations of industry knowledge, we are also able to handle any scale installation or service with minimal downtime. And, because we carry only the most innovative, reliable products on the market, you can count on our scales as much as you count on us.
Bob Nelsen and his family are restoring this unique piece of agricultural history in Ross, Iowa. It has a scale house with tin roof, arched doorways and windows, and the red bricks are setting on a limestone mortar foundation. The scale house was built in the late 1920’s and it has a 22’x9′ Fairbanks 15ton Type S Wagon scale. Siouxland Scale Service is donating a period correct weighbeam to complete it and after the restoration is complete on the scale house, we will make the scale fully functional again.
In 2008 we purchased a Fairbanks Pit-type Truck Scale from Siouxland Scale Service for one of our locations which has a throughput of roughly 2.7 million bushels of corn and 1 million bushels of soybeans per year. With such a high volume of heavy truck traffic we needed a scale that would stand up to the rigors we place on it. The choice was obvious and ironically enough we still use the “Old” Fairbanks Pit-type Truck Scale for outbound traffic that was installed in 1985.
From project planning, thought installation, and onto scale testing, the entire process was executed professionally, timely, as planned, and within budget. My experience working with Siouxland Scale Service has been nothing short of exceptional.
