The 9 Best Crane Scales

video play icon

This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Weighing large items isn't always as simple as just dropping them on a scale. For oversized or irregularly-shaped objects, these crane models are a better option, as they can elevate the load in order to obtain the most accurate reading possible. They're also extremely compact, which comes in handy for users who don't have a lot of floor space to sacrifice to a measurement tool. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 06, 2018:

Tried to accommodate both casual users and heavy industrial applications with this list. Regardless of the scale's purpose, though, we felt that being easy to use, clearly legible, and durable were the most important factors to consider.

Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
