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.

Westway Terminals

We had a very good experience with Siouxland Scale Service and Gary Hanna. Westway Terminals had a particularly difficult scenario, with some complex issues. Gary was very clear in his presentation of providing a solution… the options that he put together made sense and were within budget. Steel prices were quite volatile at the time that we were considering the project, and Gary pointed out that because of market volatility, prices might have to be adjusted. I appreciated his candor, instead of getting the project with an escalated the price to reflect market volatility. The project came in ahead of schedule, under budget, and Siouxland Scale Service was very helpful when it came time to train our personnel. The scale has worked flawlessly, and we feel confident that our weights are very accurate. We scale thousands of trucks annually, and accuracy is tops on the priority list.

Their years of experience show, and I would recommend their products and services to anyone.
