"The Swivel Caster Scale delivers unprecedented accuracy and ease of handling for the cargo industry," said Tim Peterson, Product Manager. "This scale marks the first implementation of Weigh Bar technology in a scale of this type, which will offer significant increases in weighing accuracy along with improved
