Cardinal Scale’s New Weight Wrangler Mobile and Portable Group Livestock Scales
Cardinal Scale (USA) - Cardinal Scale’s new Weight Wrangler livestock scales provide a convenient and portable method of weighing groups of cattle that may be pulled by a truck or moved by farm equipment. The scale’s high-quality rubberized composite flooring provides livestock stability and hoof-gripping assurance.

  • Completely Self-Contained NTEP Legal-for-Trade Mobile Animal Weighing
  • Mobile Scales with Wheels and Also Portable Scales with Lower Frame for Transport
  • Includes Weight Indicator, Ticket Printer, and Battery
  • Weigh Groups of Cattle up to 15-20 Head at a Time (20,000-lb Capacity)
  • Low Deck Height of Only 6 inches When in Weighing Mode

Self-Contained Design:
Cardinal Scale’s mobile and portable Weight Wrangler group animal scales provide a self-contained NTEP legal-for-trade weighing system that can be used on any firm surface with up to a 5% grade. The livestock scales include an integral air pump to easily lift and lower the trailer’s air bag suspension. The rubberized component deck and steel cattle pen enclosure with dual gates are all suspended at four points within a mobile base frame.

Cardinal’s Weight Wrangler is loaded with beneficial features for ranching weighing:
  • Durable steel cattle pens with UV-protected, baked-on tan powder paint
  • Enclosed scale includes two standard gates (your choice of gate opening hinge pin locations, specified at time of order)
  • 12-volt battery pack included (recharged by towing vehicle)
  • Weatherproof mobile weighing center (indicator and printer) is mounted to the exterior of the livestock pen
  • Cattle blind so the operator doesn’t upset livestock while operating the scale during the weight transaction
  • Extra storage shelf in indicator/printer cabinet for spare ticket rolls or EDI reader wand
  • Battery box and weight indicator cabinet feature toolbox latches to properly secure the lids and doors
  • Predefined floor plank seams in the scale deck prohibit debris from compiling underneath
  • High under-frame clearance (helpful in maneuvering through bumpy field terrain)
  • Stainless steel load cells easily accessible via side access panel

Cardinal Scale’s legal-for-trade 225 digital weight indicator, USB drive port, and CTP-1 ticket printer combine in the weatherproof, outdoor enclosure of the Weight Wrangler’s mobile weighing center. Livestock weighing transaction results are all displayed on the easy-to-read, transflective LCD screen that remains highly visible, even in direct sunlight.

Cardinal Scale's 225 weight indicator features StableSENSE® digital filtering that filters the weight signal to produce a stable weight display in spite of motion on the scale platform due to animal movement.

Cardinal Scale’s Mobile Weighing Center:
  • Calculates Shrink Loss for Livestock Group
  • Displays Current Head Count, Gross Weight, and Average Weight
  • Also Displays Previous and Total Head Count, Gross Weight, and Average Weight
  • Displays Transaction Number and Transaction Shrinkage
  • Printable Report Summarizing Above Information per Transaction
  • Inclinometer Detects Scale Angle to Determine if Angle is Out of Tolerance for Making Weight
  • Weight Indicator Displays Current Tilt Angle (blanks out if out of NTEP tolerance)
  • Comes With USB Port to Store Transactions on Portable USB Drive
  • Transactions Stored on USB Drive May Be Summarized for Printing

User-Friendly Operation:
Lowering the scale into weighing mode after transport is easy and can be quickly done by one person. For the mobile models, pull the safety locking pins for transport mode, pull the pin on the tongue to split apart the two arms on the front of the scale, turn the air purge valve to release the air from the airbags and lower the scale, and then rotate the weighbridge lifting handle inward at each corner.

The Weight Wrangler’s mobile weighing center includes an inclinometer that eliminates the need to recalibrate the scale after transport. The self-contained scale provides legal-for- trade weights in multiple locations with up to a 5% tilt angle (maximum allowed by NTEP) in any direction.
