    Back to basics

    50 ft? Really?

    meters to feet conversion at DuckDuckGo

    7.5m = 24.6063ft .......................which also happens to be our length.

    So have you been telling you wife that 15cm = 1 foot ?




    Trust me .... I did sums at University
    1m = 39.3701 inches
    7.5m = 295.3 inches = about 24 feet 7 inch

    Complicated!

    I think you have to take four readings:

    A = front axle only on weighbridge
    B = all axles on weighbridge
    C = both rear axles on weighbridge
    D = rear axle only on weighbridge

    A is, obviously, the front axle weight, B is the total weight in running order, take D from C to get the individual rear axle weights. I think!
    Ah, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now

    If it's a narrow plate type weigh bridge then its called a Dynamic Weigh Bridge. For this you need to be in first gear and at tick over speed. The approach should be perfectly level so start as far back as you can which will allow any fluids to settle before you drive over the plate. Don't be tempted to stop or dip the clutch.
    If it's a bed type weigh bridge, then you do front axle, total weight and then both rears divided by two. The rear tag axles should be compensating axles, as in they work together to carry the load equally, so the weight of the two axles should, in theory be equal. Each weighing should be with vehicle in first gear, engine off and give it time to settle.
    If you can't get a proper reading from the tag axles being on a flat bed weigh bridge (if they are close together), as a rule of thumb, take the weight from the front from the total gross weight. This will be the weight of the rear axles which you divide by two. It can be very difficult on a flat bed weigh bridge to get an accurate reading if tag axles are close together hence why the dynamic type plate was introduced when tried-axle tractor units and trailers started appearing on the roads.
