The easy-to-lift platform allows quick access to the scale’s interior for thorough cleaning. One person can safely lift the platform manually. Built-in gas springs control lifting/lowering speed so that the platform opens with minimal effort and closes gently. Springs are sealed for safe, failure-proof operation, while spring-loaded plungers automatically lock the platform in place when it is lowered to the weighing position. Provides accurate, repeatable weighing in wet and corrosive environments. May be installed in a pit or on top of the floor, and its adjustable feet make it easy to level the scale on uneven floors or when moving the scale to a new location. Includes numerous optional add-ons.
