Rice Lake Survivor® PT

Pit-type applications with deep clearance can take advantage of the extra-strength design of Rice Lake’s PT Series. The same massive beams that run alongside the SR’s design have been used underneath the PT model, providing our highest strength structure. The PT Series is available in both steel and concrete deck versions, both with manhole covers for easier access and servicability. Rice Lake customizes scales for retrofit to any existing pit size.

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.
