The Railroads are not supplying rail scale testing service like they used to. Many of the Railroads are totally eliminating rail scale testing service.

Siouxland Scale Service provides rail scale testing service with an 80,000 lb. certified test unit. This unit is truck transported for a faster response time and faster calibration time.

All Test Equipment, Test Procedures, and Test Reports follow American Association of Railroad (AAR Scale Handbook) and National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) Handbook 44. Our Trained and Certified Technicians can do the calibrations for you or you can have your local scale company present to do calibrations.

Serving Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota.

ADM Alliance

During 2008, Siouxland Scale Service installed a new truck scale at ADM ANI in Le Mars, Iowa. This involved tearing out the old scale and replacing the supports and the pit wall coping before installing a new 69-foot truck scale. Due to our business, we can’t shut down for a long period of time, so Siouxland Scale Service worked with us by completing most of the work was done during the weekend, with business back to normal on Monday morning. The project came in right on the quoted price and the workers were all very professional and safety conscious.
I really appreciate the quality of work done and the service we received from Siouxland Scale Service.
