This wiki has been updated 2 times since it was first published in June of 2019. If your job requires handling large shipments, then a regular scale just won't cut it. These pallet models are easy to stack boxes or crates on, and are sturdy enough to handle loads weighing thousands of pounds. Our selections were made based on their capacity, ease of use, and durability. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Rice Lake Roughdeck This industrial model can register weights of up to 30,000 pounds, making it ideal for any business that deals in heavy freight. It's made almost entirely of solid steel, so it will survive no matter how much junk you pile on top of it. 1800scales.com

Editor's Notes

July 08, 2019:

In the interests of thoroughness, this list includes both floor models and pallet jacks with built-in scales. Obviously, if you already own a jack or a forklift then those models will not be of interest to you, but if you're in the market for both a jack and a scale the options shown could allow you to kill two birds with one cost-effective stone. That said, they're more expensive than the floor models, so it may not be worth it for your particular business.

One often-overlooked consideration is the length of any wires that will need to be attached. If you don't want to house the display right next to the scale, make sure the connection cord is long enough to give you plenty of slack. The same goes for the power cord — although many of the scales here allow you to sidestep that issue entirely by using batteries.

Give thought to how easy it will be to load the thing as well. One model on the list, the PrimeScales PS-IN108, comes with a ramp to make things easier. Others have removable feet to reduce their stature. You may have plans to put your scale in-ground, in which case this wouldn't matter, but otherwise do a little research now to save yourself a lot of hassle down the line.
