Weighing Systems

Elphinstone Weighing Systems

Elphinstone were the first to introduce on-vehicle weighing systems to Australia in 1976. Originally importing scale systems from the USA, we started building our own Electronics in 1988 and Loadcells in 2001. Over more than 37 years we have installed weighing systems to almost every type of transport vehicle in Australia and many specialised stationary applications.

With a strong engineering background, extensive manufacturing and service facilities and an indepth knowledge of the transport industry we can provide an accurate and reliable weighing system to suit your application and back it up into the future.


Elphinstone Trailers

Elphinstone commenced building logging trailers in 1977 when they built their first folding pole trailer. In 1981 they built the first folding tri-axle trailer and in 1984 built the World's first self loading road train with 4 axle dog Introduced "Air transducers" for air suspensions.

Elphinstone continues to be at the forefront of innovative design with the Easysteer suspension which will increase payload and deck length and provide very accurate on-vehicle weighing.
