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.


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.
