Payload Systems available from Caterpillar

Payload systems

Whether you work in construction, landscaping, forestry or any other industry that relies on compact and heavy equipment, payload systems are critical to protecting your fleet. These systems are used to weigh material that is hauled by trucks and scrapers or loaded by excavators and wheel loaders. They help customers improve productivity, improve safety, and reduce wear and tear on tires and on roads.

The Cat® Production Measurement systems put payload scales in all Cat load and haul products, including wheel loaders, excavators, articulated trucks, off-highway rigid frame trucks and scrapers.

The Benefits of CAT Payload Systems

Cat Production Measurement Systems do far more than just collect payload weight. On-the-go load weighing takes the guesswork out of hitting load targets, speeding up cycle times and increasing productivity. Operators can collect payload weights in real time and monitor a variety of other functions for increased precision and efficiency. Detailed reporting on key performance indicators provides the ability to analyze data to identify ways to improve your bottom line.
