Bulk Weighing Systems

One of the most efficient ways of shipping grain is by rail and one of the most efficient ways of loading rail cars is a bulkweigher.

But if your bulkweigher is broke and you have 100 rail cars to load, who are you going to call? Siouxland Scale Service that’s who.
The Service Department at Siouxland Scale Service realizes the importance of this type of weighing and we have trained our service technicians on bulkweighers as well as stocked parts for all major brands of bulkweighers so that we can take care of any emergency you may have.

If you’ve had your bulkerweigh system a long time and it’s taking a long time to load rail cars, Siouxland Scale Service can visit your site and evaluate your system to give you recommendations on bukweigher upgrades that will increase your accuracy and loading times.


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.
